    FWIW...MY inactivity timer is worthless. Mine is set for 6 hours yet it consistently goes into standby sometimes in less than an hour. When I turn the TV off (not the receiver) after viewing the morning news and return a couple of hours later the receiver is consistently in standby.

    It seems like a simple recording would be the solution the the problem.

    Relying on the system buffer is a crap shoot, even with TiVo and DirecTV.

    Any kind of electrical blip wipes out the buffer every time but a recording would either miss nothing or only what transpired during the reboot.

    With this work-around, you could have your cake and eat it, too.

    Maybe you need to turn HDMI-CEC off.

    What functions go away if I do that?

    Your Receiver should quit going into standby when you turn the TV off

    According to other sources other control functions also go away.

    It depends on how integrated your receiver is with your TV. Simple power on the receiver when the TV is powered on or power on the TV (and possibly select the correct input) would be lost along with any "turn off the receiver when the TV is turned off" functionality. The level of integration may be higher depending on the capability of the TV.

    Thanks for your response. Better leave well enough alone. :)
