Is there a way to power off the PVR when you will be away for a week or so
other than unplugging it and also, I find the pulsating green light that shines
through the top vent, to be annoying in a dark room. Is there any way to stop it?
If you fall asleep in fornt of your TV it is nice that the PVR goes into stand by mode. However the stupid blue Bell screen saver keeps my TV on all night. If the Bell PVR shut the signal down to my TV (or it went to black like the Shaw PVR) my TV will shut down or at least turn of the back ground illumination (because of black screen) to save power and operating life.
If you listen to the music channels say on some outdoor speakers and turn your TV off but leave the receiver on. It will shut off after 4 hours. very annoying. Working outside with music on all day. It shuts off
