We're doing a home energy audit and discovered to our shock that our two Tivos were consuming more power than anything else in our house, including our furnace! They are two Series 2 DVD units (Humax and Toshiba) and both draw 60 watts! That's equivalent to a 120w light bulb running 24-7. While at first glance that doesn't seem like much it works to 3 kwh in a day, 90 in a month, and over 1,000 in a year! At 16 cents/kwh, it turns out to be about $170 a year! I hope my calculations are wrong (they certainly could be )! Both machines are on lifetime (fortunately), but it was a major surprise to realize that we're paying roughly $15 a month just to run them and that they are the biggest energy hog in the house! Looking for advice on possible solutions on how to save energy 1. Live with it. 2. Put them each on a timer that shuts them off 16 hours a day. 3. Replace both with a newer Tivo. 4. ??? ------------------------------ #1 keeps hitting the pocket book. #2 according to many puts wear and tear on the Tivos. #3 would lose the DVD capability. In addition, we're on basic cable, meaning analog land-- no digital cable. So, getting a new Tivo may not even be an option. Any advice appreciated!
