    Can you not turn the screen off whilst outputting via HDMI???

    What a waste of battery. Have I missed anything guys?

    Unfortunately, you are not missing anything. Definitely sucks

    Depends on where you're watching from. Screen off in native video player. Screen on in the browser.

    Thanks for that. I was convinced mine turned off at one point but wasn't anymore, but it makes sense because I think when it wasn't was streaming via the browser.

    I was watching from the native player and it stayed on.

    If you hit the button in the upper right-hand corner in the native player the screen can timeout

    You have to go into presentation mode. Tap the screen and then tap the two rectangles at top right. The video will keep playing but you can do other things on the PB without interrupting the video. Once you stop using the Playbook the screen will go dark at whatever you have the timeout set to. It would be nice if you could do the same for the browser.
