    How do you change the inactivity setting for the Hopper? I did a search and can't find any info and also can't find any info in the online guide.

    Forgive my ignorance, what does this function do and what is the optimal setting for inactivity?

    If you do not change anything, including activating guide, menu's, browsing or changing channels, the receiver will go into standby. You can turn it off.

    Factory default is 2 hours. If you are watching anything for more that that the sleep mode kick in. I changed it to 6 hours.

    Where is the Updates menu? I don't see it.
    NOTE: I just noticed the date on the original question.
    I too, am looking to make the inactivity time out longer than 2hrs.
