Sorry if any of these are dumb questions, but I tried to look for answers in the literature that came with the DVR and couldn't find anything. Mine is the standard Roamio, receiving TV signal via HD antenna. Would really appreciate any input on these: 1. Is there a way to easily and quickly put the Tivo into standby mode or otherwise switch it off at the end of the evening? Right now, the only way I can see is to press the Tivo button, then go into various settings menus then clicking on "standby" option... I feel like there is something obvious that I am missing... the remote only has a "TV power" on/off button as far as I can tell 2. How do I program the remote to control my TV's power off/volume control etc? 3. Is there a way to select a few favorite channels and somehow program the remote to quickly access these? 4. This one is more because I guess I am kind of obsessive about taking care of my electronic equipment and making it last as long as possible to get the most out of my investment (I paid for Lifetime service and hope to get at least a couple years out of it without problem); I've noticed that even when the Roamio is in standby it still makes noise and generates heat, at least more so than my Direct TV DVR which I am replacing with the Tivo). Is it better to switch the Tivo off by removing the outlet plug from time to time to give it a "rest"? Also should I use a dust cover when the DVR for a little more protection? (or is that a bad idea if the machine is constantly running and slightly warm, as mine seems to be.) Thank you in advance for any help or advice.
