NO they kept talking about the HR's ok. Like the HR being hooked to the TV has anything to do with the TV shutting on or off, And it doesn't!

He wanted a solution for the TV and HR's have nothing to do with it.


He wanted the TV to turn off when the HR went into power saving mode.  His current TV doesn't automatically turn off when the video signal isn't present.  He's looking for an alternative solution.  The first suggestion was based on someone thinking that when the HR went into power saving mode, it would reduce its power consumption enough to trigger a Smart Strip, which could, in turn, be used to turn the TV off.


What don't you understand?

Plug the things into the right spots and they work just fine.

The Take Charge Smart Power Strip includes “Auto Power” sensing technology and it easy to set up. Simply plug a "master" device--most likely a PC or TV, into the red Control Outlet. This master device will then control the five Master-Controlled Outlets, which are suitable for those devices, like DVD players VCRs and game consoles that do not require constant round-the-clock power.


Cable/Satellite boxes, and DVRs, which need 24-hour power, should be plugged into one of the two Always On Outlets. Save Money and Conserve Energy while Protecting your Valuable Electronics.




Exactly. a "master" device" will be one that be turned of COMPLETELY, like a PC, or TV.  if the TS wanted his DVR to tune off when the TV goes off, this will be an excellent solution, however, the TS is looking at this "backwards and as such the power strip method does not work.  why is this so hard to understand...... :bang
