I have 6 uverse boxes one with a dvr and they are always running. I can only imagine the amount of electricty they use even when not in use. Is there an energy star option instead of putting them all on power strips and planning ahead to flip them on 5 minutes so it can load before I want to watch tv?

I probably should have added that you cannot deprive the RG & the DVR of power if you expect to make recordings at any time.
Edited to conform to skeeters clarification - Thanks Skeeter.

I probably should have added that you cannot turn off the RG & the DVR if you expect to make recordings at any time.
To clarify aviewers post: You do not have to leave the DVR on (plugged in but not powered up) but you should leave the RG on at all times regardless of if you're recording or not.
