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

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

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.
