    Different strokes for different folks. Perhaps you have never gone four hours without touching the remote. I have a couple of times and I know a few people who "set and forget" even outside of the restaurant example.

    I would like to know what Rich considers odd.

    Okay, I'll turn it back "on". Let's see what happens...

    Same thing you wrote above IIRC. I'll try it again, I don't mind being wrong.

    I would not consider an inactivity sensor turning off a receiver at the prescribed length of time to be odd. It is the feature following the design. I though you had some other side effect in mind - such as losing the DVR buffer content. (Not a big deal. If the user hasn't touched the remote for four hours they are not using the buffer.)

    As long as the receiver is ready to turn back on when I return I don't see any side effects. Going in to standby is the planned effect.

    My receiver just started rebooting over and over again.
    Disconnected the AM21 tuner and all is fine. ???????

    It also asks you after 4 hours with a screen pop up before turning off... and that pop,up lasts a long time before it actually shuts off.

    I ran into that yesterday. Aside from that nothing has happened. You were right, I was wrong.
