Yesterday we bought a third portal, replaced a 3-way splitter with a 4-way (that I obtained at a "local" Shaw retail store), then installed the portal without powering on, then called Shaw, and in about 20 minutes of conversation and reboots, we had the new portal in service and everything else still works great.
Two of the portals are connected to TVs via HDMI and one is connected via composite to our old Toshiba tube TV which we've now moved to the basement (after installing our new Sharp 70" in its place upstairs Wow!).
This morning I noticed that when I powered on the two HDMI-connected TVs, the Shaw logo was prancing around their screens, but when I powered on the Toshiba there was a program in play, which brings me to my question. Is there any way to force a particular portal to go into sleep mode (assuming that that's what happening when the screensaver appears) before turing off its TV?
