I read the posts on this subject but none solve my issue. This and the fact that I seem to be getting ads on something I pay a subscription for may result in me returning my week old Tivo. Maybe one of you can help. I hope this is just me missing something easy. With old WMC ot TWC system if I hit stop on live or recorded TV it would stop and I would go back to guide or menu, great. With Tivo if older kids or parents watching a channel and we finish for the night I see no way to stop that channel/show. So if young kids come in and turn on TV next morning there can be an inappropriate show on the last channel playing. It would be nice for unit to always stay in say guide mode without pip. Even if I use the slowmow button to hide the pip window and have pip wind set to off in settings the tivo starts playing in full screen. Same with going through the many steps to put unit in standby, coming out of standby TV is playing. Is there not a status where the tuners are not doing anything. Is the only way to make this thing comply with parental controls to turn it off at the wall!
