Does your AM21 or AM21N go into standby when you put your HRx or H2x into standby?

    Goes off on a HR22-100 with AM-21N attached and R22-100 with AM-21. Got a HR34 arriving on Friday to replace the HR22, so I suppose it won't on that unit.

    All the HR24's and AM21 or AM21N turn off when HR24 is powered off/standby.

    With the HR34 the AM21 or AM21N never powers off.

    Using power pass thru BTW

    Wasn't sure how to vote since it was "units that do" not "HR's that do".
    So didn't vote.

    Seems the bug is in the code for the HR34's, not the AM21's...I believe this was discussed at length when the 34's were released. Might have also been discussed when the 24's came out, but I think it has since been corrected if they ever had the same issue. Thats too far back to remember now. :lol:

    When they were connected to an HR21, HR22 and H23, they would go into standby with the receiver. When connected to a H25 they do not since there is no power pass-thru available. That would be mostly a yes.

    As I said before, using power pass-through or not has nothing to do with the AM21 going into standby. It gets the standby signal from the receiver through the USB cable.

    My HR21's & HR24's with AM21 (power pass thru) will go into standby. However, the HR34 w/AM21n will not.

    AM21 with my HR21, HR22, old HR23's and all current HR24-100's, using power pass thru, turn off power light when DVR's go into standby mode.

    My THR22 and HR34 do not turn off power light on AM21 in standby mode.

    In our primary (family) room, I have a HR34, HR24 and THR22, each with AM21's attached. Only one out of three turn off in standby (HR24). It's like a blue light special all the time in that room. :)

    Annoying to my wife, and probably won't qualify for the Energy Star rating. :lol:
