Use Power-Save Mode
To maximize the life of your DVR, you should power-down the DVR when it
is not in use. Simply press CBL and then Power on your remote control, or
press Power on the front panel of the DVR. The Power light turns off ; but,
because the DVR is still plugged in, your scheduled recordings still occur.
Between 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. daily, your DVR
will automatically enter Power-Save mode unless
you press a key on the remote control or a key on
the DVR front panel at least once every 2 hours.
In Power-Save mode, the set-top is powered-
down, but all scheduled recordings still occur.
When the DVR enters Power-Save mode, your TV
displays a black screen. Note: Your cable service
provider controls whether or not the automatic
Power-Save mode is activated on your set-top.
At 1:10 a.m., the DVR displays the above 5-minute warning banner, indicating
that the DVR is about to enter power-save mode. When this banner appears,
do one of the following:

warning banner appears. The DVR will automatically power-down. After
your DVR powers down, you must press CBL and then Power on your
remote control, or press Power on the front panel of your DVR to start
watching TV again.
To prevent the DVR from entering Power-Save mode, simply press any
key on your remote or any key on the front panel of the DVR when the
warning banner appears. The DVR will not attempt to enter power-save
mode again until another 2 hours of inactivity has passed.
