How to wake HR44 from power save mode other than channel up?

    Whenever my genie is asleep - it screws up the HDMI handshake between my receiver and TV. I want to automatically wake the DVR when I power the TV using a macro on my Harmony remote. However I do not want to use the channel up/down buttons to do so since there is a reasonable chance the DVR may be already awake and the channel will then be changed... Any ideas?

    I realize I can simply disable the power save mode but I really like to retain the option if possible.

    Just disable Power Save Mode. It only saves about one or two watts on a DVR that consumes ~40W. Hardly worth the hassle.

    Winters,...
    In my case that would then switch the TV either on or off.

    It reminds me that I haven't fixed that problem at all- neither HR44 nor C41 have the right code to not switch the Sammies with the press of either on or off.

    If he's using a universal remote then that won't be an issue. Simply clear it and have no TV set while learning commands.

    ;)

    I use Info, then hit select (to clear the power up message). You might try that.
