A few years back I had 5 Tivos running and a PC on 24 hours a day.
I turned off the 2 Tivos and the PC and found a quite substantial drop-off in power and the bills that came with them.
SO: I have a bedroom Tivo. But with the loss of the HNP, it is never used as the recipient of programmes recorded as it once was. Very occasionally it might be set to record.
I am thinking now of turning it off on a timer at midnight and turning it on at 9pm - so around 3 hours a day instead of 24 hours a day.
Anyone have any views on what stopping and starting a Tivo every day might do?
This is purely to save money on needless Tivo on-time when it is only used at the bedroom at night.
