Comcast has removed the "Power Saver Starts After:" setting... they think they know what's best, instead of asking US... the USERS.
(though they inadvertantly left the "example settings screen" graphic in the software that HAD the option... "A" button, "Tips & Tricks", "Settings", "Go Green")
I've always had mine set to one or two hours, so that if I walk away and get busy doing something else (or... lets face it... if I fall asleep), the "lack of human interaction" caused the STB to go into Power Saver mode... removing HDMI activity... which then turned off my projector or TV (depending on which room I was using)... saving a LOT more energy than "just" the X1 box itself.
Now, it NEVER goes into Power Saver mode... even after 8 hours.
If all that they are looking for is pushing buttons on the Remote, then it's totally failing. If, on the other hand, it's looking for a "lack of HDMI handshaking" to determine if the User has "gone away", then they need to consider that MANY users have an HDMI switcher for variosu reasons, and the HDMI switcher will always "handshake" regardless of whether the display device is turned ON or not.
Put it back like it was!... please!
