I've been habing a few issues with my receiver box. This is my third one within two months. I have a separate remote for my TV than my U-Verse remote. When I shut off my TV, a few minutes later my DVR receiver turns off. Every time I turn my TV on, my DVR receiver boots up from the start. I hear this could be a power save option; however, I have two major issues with this: 1. Any shows I have scheduled to record do not record when the receiver is off and 2. the other receivers I have in the house are not able to pause, record, rewind, etc once the main receiver is off.
For example, tonight I had two shows scheduled to record at 10pm and 10:30pm. At 9:50, I shut off my TV (NOT my receiver) and went upstairs. I turned on my TV upstairs and was not able to pause. Went downstairs to realize my receiver was off with no red light indicating it was recording. I turned my TV on and magically my DVR booted up. Suddenly it started to record and my upstairs receiver pauses and records. I have to leave my TV on downstairs for this to work properly. Can someone please help?? I sure hope I don't need another receiver. I'm tired of trying one after another.

Thank you BOTH!!! That was the solution! My device was plugged into a power strip, along with the television. When I moved the device to the wall outlet and left the TV on the powerstrip, it works just fine!! THANK YOU again for the solutions. This was driving me nuts!!
