Do you leave your T-Box switched on permanently.? There seems little point in turning it off, or am I wrong.?

I'm considering a Tbox. We are pretty power conscious and turn most things off at the wall at night, including our current standard Telstra decoder, TV, Computer etc... If I go for a Tbox will I be rendering any settings useless every night ie. series record type functions?... and yes of course I realise it won't record if its off!!

You won't lose set recordings/settings. Your safe to turn off at the wall. Bare in mind it takes about 5-7 minutes for boot up each morning.
