Do you turn your receivers off evertime?

All the other recievers (H20, R15, R15) are shut off.
The R15's are shut down because it tells the unit, I am done watching it... and it can do it's other work.
The H20... It is my secondary HDTV reciever so it is used maybe twice a week.

For my HDTivo, it does what Earl says - it knows that I am not actually watching and can do cleanup or use both tuners for recording.

DVR's are never off unless you unplug them, but they *MAY* do better housekeeping if you put them in standby.....

Main reason for the DTivos is I want to see my two live buffers when I can't sleep at night and turn on the TV.
I guess that's the price to pay for DTV's new advanced technology....make sure you turn everything off at night when you never had to before. Go figure.
