Not based on what we've seen so far.
Someone did the math. They hooked up the unit to a killo-watt meter and the savings was "negligible". There's not a 10w difference between on and standby.
That would be great, if the unit actually was saving that much.
No it's not. There is ZERO difference between "standby" and when power saving mode kicks in.
This does not work when deleting the program you just viewed. At all. Never has. It has always taken a long time before it finally pauses, because the underpowered CPU is busy deleting a program on command, which apparently is much more important not to defer than a pause command (which in my mind should take precedence).
Not only that, it takes a much loooooooooooooooonger time to delete (while it inappropriately does not clear the "want to delete" banner [of course I do, that's why I pressed the button 30 seconds ago]) than it did with the SD GUI. I could hear who the killer is AND watch him walked out in handcuffs during the time the PIG appears and the time it finally pauses. Before, I could just hear who the killer is. Neither has ever been welcome, which is a requirement in my living room. Just dumping me into audio and video I don't want to see is ridiculous.
According to the Energy Star charts, the tested difference between on and sleep is 2 watts for an HR24-500, most others listed were less than that. HR24-100 is less than half a watt.
Probably for the same DRM reasons that you can't record Sonic Tap.
I used that the other night and the info was changing very quickly. Maybe a benefit of the new GUI?
Yup, nowhere near 10w. I've seen the posts and charts right here on dbstalk.com.
The one change with the new release that really really irks me is that they took away -- for delete.
Press mute and don't look at the PIG... problem solved.
Sorry, saying something sounds dumb is not an attack. "Why you...I oughtta...", now that's an attack. "YOU are so dumb!"; that's probably an attack. Although both are really only opinions. Rude is not a felony offense on the internet (if it were, I'd be in solitary).
Or maybe I'm wrong; I once posted "You know what, if f I could only reach through this VGA monitor screen..." on a Tivo forum and never even finished the sentence. BOOM! Banished for 3 days (don't throw me in that briar patch). OK, stupid post on my part (won't be the last), erring on the side of caution, etc., etc., I get it. But I got a lot done those 3 days.
Have I learned anything since then? Probably not all that much. You really have no idea how much I am holding back.
But I really love you all, even if I have to defend a post or two every so often.
Here's a tip: preface everything controversial with "I'm just sayin' " which makes EVerything all right [not].
Guess its time for me to stock up on existing remotes.
I stand by those numbers based on testing done on HR2x DVRs by fellow forum members. It's not really a wild guess. If you've got different testing results, well then I stand corrected.
I've had a 'Kill-a-watt' on a HR22-100 since this 'energy savings' started.
32 or 33 watts is all I've seen off or on - and since the display is +/- 1 digit, you be the judge.
I use my Harmony remotes but I do have a backup stock of DirecTV remotes. With the key presses going away though that doesn't offer much solace.
So YOU say. I say that person did the math wrong. The fiction section is over on the far side of the bookstore.
Read on buddy, I'm not the only one. Stop pointing fingers at me, I don't make up stuff.
Then YOU test it and disprove the results.
LOVE the update, Pandora is awesome.
Still wouldn't mind seeing an option to view more channels in the grid.
I did a little mockup, 2 more channels plus logo's. Would of taken a lot more time to do more hours.

Just tired Kill-a-watt on HR20-100:
41W blue ring off.
41W-42W blue ring on.
Why did they change this and what is the new way to delete something in the playlist?
