The X1 equipment will stay on automatically and will record programs. They are meant to be on all the time and the remote will not turn them off.

Hi blundberg105, the information that (Rustyben) provided is correct. The cable box will only turn off if it is unplugged or you lose power in your home. The equipment is designed to stay on 24/7 so that you never miss any important recordings or updates.
