Another side effect of this short-sighted "feature"? The DVR will continue to play after you turn the system off.
So you're watching a show, become tired, and hit the off button. The show keep playing and you'll have to start the DVR from scratch and fast foward to find where you left off upon resuing.

Not having an explicit off for an entertiainment center device is patently ridiculous. At the point in which more than one device in the chain deploys this logic, you have a system that doesn't turn off. The X1 box is literally hoping downstream objects will supplyment its inability to be turned off by ignoring it when they are turned off. When designing devices that live in a echosystem with other devices, best design principles insist that your product not defer critical autonomous functionality to other devices in the system.
Case in point - as provided above, Sonos deploys the same horrible logic. So now you have a T.V., a speaker and a reciever, all networked as peers, where two are ignorant of the user's request that they not broadcast. As a result, sound is broadcast from the not off X1 to the not off Sonos with no way for the user to put either device in an alternate state beyond physical intervention.
