Android TV Option to hide pause menu OSD

I'm requesting this from using the Android TV version, but I believe it's the same across most versions.

 

When you pause a video, the on-screen menu stays up on the screen, with the title and poster art, menu buttons, time, user profile icon, and seek bar.

 

I am requesting an option to hide this information and only show the video stream paused.

 

Reason for the request is because OLED and plasma TVs are susceptible to burn-in and image retention. Some of the pause menu items, like the menu buttons and seek bar are consistent across every file, so it's a common and static image that can cause burn-in.

 

Please consider adding this options.

Don’t most new tvs have pixel phase shifting to deal with and stop burn in?

Yes, but burn-in can still occur with these self-emissive displays. You still can't run a news channel or video game gui 24/7 with pixel shifting.

 

Also, I like to baby my OLED and this would be an extra help in that, hehe.
