My Tivo box appears to be turning itself on overnight. It has been happening intermittently for a while, but just in the last couple of weeks it has started happening every night. Can anyone help fix this please? I really don't want to be paying an overinflated electricity bill!
Normally this mean there is ongoing network maintenance, a signal is sent to restart the boxes when the maintenance is over, the difference in cost between a box in standby and one awake is pennies per annum

Hi If you have any programmes scheduled to be recorded or if there are important updates sent to the box, this will come on complete the task and then go back to stand-by. If it stays on the check if the power saving mode is activated: press Home - Settings - Power Saving settings and make sure it's set to Low Power Mode.

This happens every time I go away for any length of time. Turn it to standby, go away for a week or so, come home and it's not on standby. Doesn't this mean the hard drive is trundling away all the time?
