Xfinity Screensaver - Hide Sports info?

I like to record football games and watch them at my leisure, but the screensaver often displays the game results before I start to watch, ruining the experience of watching the game cold. I do like the screensaver feature, but wonder if there is a a way to choose the information that gets displayed. Ideally, viewers would have the option to select/deselect each: sports, weather, news, traffic, other.

There's no customization of the info but you can change the time it takes for the screensaver to kick in.

Thank you. Yeah, that's what I figured. Do you know if there is a way to recommend this to Comcast?
