    Hi Guys!
    I was wondering if the DTV peanut remote was capable of setting a timer to turn off my TV after a certain amount of time. I’ve searched settings, but haven’t seen a way to do this. I can always get out my Samsung TV remote, but it’s a PITA to pull out of the drawer every time I go up to the bedroom and try to feel my way through the sleep settings since it’s usually dark. Thanks in advance!

    In the DTV Menu, Settings & Help, Settings,
    do you see a Power Save feature. That can be set to turn off the power if the receiver has no remote activity. I think it is a set 4 hours .
    I believe the Samsung in Settings has a setting to Protect the TV and it will shut off after a chosen time. ?
