Wow... digging up bones here with this "old" thread.
Has anyone seen this problem get resolved yet? I tried this past weekend to use my HTPC to start recording shows again, simply because I want to be able to watch my recorded shows upstairs in the master bedroom on our laptop.
I read the posts above, and "I Want My HDTV" says to disable the nightly updates and do it manually every couple of days. I looked for this, and there's no option.
Here's what I tried this past weekend:
1) disabled STANDBY timeout... no luck
2) changed the update time to something during the day (10am) to see if it would recognize that live TV was being watched and that the system was NOT idle for more than a few minutes. I changed the channel, BTW, just before the update time, and guess what? Receiver powered itself off.
SO - no luck here with getting any of this shut off... has anyone developed or gotten a solution to this? I have moved this one back to the bedroom (single tuner mode now...) and am using my 6141 instead for the HTPC. It does NOT shut off... two days straight!
