Just came over from DirecTV this past Wednesday. Later I'll post my experience with the Hopper/Joey system so far. But for now I have a question. I like to wake up to Sirius XM. With Direct (who has a different music provider) I could leave my HD DVR on all the time, on the station I wanted to and set my stereo system to come on in the morning: Thus music to wake up to!

But I've been told the Joeys will power down (or go into sleep mode) after 4 hours of non use. Is there a way to set them to come on automatically? I haven't found a way to do this.

Thanks!

You can change the shutdown timeout time.

menu - settings - diagnostics - updates. Then pick the length you want for the inactivity shutdown.

Now, it will still automatically shutdown at 1 am for the nightly update. No way around that at this time.

Thanks for the info. GREAT info.....maybe someday they will allow for an auto on feature that can be programmed.....No big deal right now though.

You can set the channel to auto tune and it will wake the Joey up.
Just act like you're creating a series timer and switch it from dvr to auto tune.

I knew I had read about the auto tune, just never used it. Glad you got this working, mweathers.
