    ~5.5 watts
    ~4.5 watts during standby

    Measured with my Kill-a-Watt.

    Do you happen to know what a Premiere draws?

    From another thread, I learned that a Premiere 4 draws 18-22 watts when measured with the poster's kill-a-watt.

    Not sure about other types of Premieres though.

    A two tuner Premiere is around 24 or 25 watts.

    I was pondering giving up my Series 2 single tuner for another mini. The T2 requires a $4/mo digital converter from my cable co, so it would pay for the Mini in less than 3 years.

    But, I just measured the power consumption and it looks like 20W or nearly $4 more per month to power the T2. The Mini draw is the same as the converter.

    So, when power is taken into account, a 16 month break even.
