Yes powering off from the front panel puts your unit in standby mode, from here your receiver looks for and downloads software updates.

I dont know why shutting off the power from the remote does not do the same thing.

Scott, putting the unit into standby mode from the power button on the remote does exactly the same thing as putting the unit into standby mode from the power button on the front panel. You just can't do a system reset with the remote. Where did you hear otherwise?

I always turn mine "off" with the remote and everything spins down in the same manner and in the same amount of time as if I did front pannel - I get my updates in line with everyone else.
As a matter of fact my front panel buttons are monster-proofed.

I've never had any problems getting the updates when the unit is turned off from the remote...in fact I don't think I've ever even touched the front panel power button except to do a hard reset.

I can't figure out why I got the P154 upgrade so quick, usually I'm one of the last ones. :shrug:

I never did receive the 8 min video on the Search and Caller ID. :confused:
