I don't believe the unit has to be powered on, but it may have to be plugged in. But the way that most people use it as a PVR it would be left on 24x7.

I don't know why you would power it off as, like most electronics, it is never really off even when it is plugged in so I don't know that there is much of a change in power consumption.
