X1 Cable Box

My cable box uses large amounts of electricity even when turned off.  What cable box could I buy to replace the X1 that would use less energy especially when turned off?

A TiVo would be an option or use a Roku with the Xfinity Stream app

use voice command 'about' and reply with the rest of the line after "STB version". the reports we have seen on power usage show minute use of electricity compared to older set top boxes. the newer non-mechanical spinning drive (SSD) DVRs take even less.
