Should I leave my cable box on or turn it off?

Is it best to turn off the cable box when not in use?

Re: Should I leave my cable box on or turn it off?

There are no issues turning it off if it supports it (some DTA's have no OFF). It can save a bit of electricity. Some models have a power saver feature that, when turned on, also turns off the hard drive and goes into a deeper sleep. There is also an auto-power-off mode that can kick in after 1-4 hours of no remote control activity.
