My new Insignia LED TV turns on by itself at what seems to be random times of the day or night. I have tried several things to resolve this, unplugged and pressed power button for 60 seconds (at recommendation of Insignia tech), moved to different outlet, reset TV to manufacturer defaults, made sure everything auto is off, I even unplugged the HDMI cable connecting my Uverse DVR to the TV and nothing has resolved the issue. I planned on returning TV today but I just happened to be awake to see the exact time it came on by itself, at 2:34 am.. I took a look at the system info for Uverse and at that same time a DVR Packet had been delivered. Now this may be just a coincidence, but my Uverse DVR did not turn on, just the TV. Can anyone tell me what the schedule is for these packets to be delivered? I would like to see if it happens again, but I prefer not to spend the entire day inside with TV off just waiting for this to happen again. Also, has anyone else had this issue?

I saw you said it is an insignia & I googled that - You are not alone - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&as_q=insignia+t
It must be the IR sensor - cover it & see if it turns on.
