There is a "stand-by" mode and a "restart" function, but there is no "power down" option (at least none I can find in the menus). So just what is the safest way to power down a TiVo? Option 1: Put the TiVo into stand-by mode, then yank the power cord out. Option 2: Tell the TiVo to "restart", then yank the power cord out at the moment the power seems to cut off Option 3: Put all tuners on a non-existent channel so the hard drive stops spinning, then yank the power cord out Option 4: To hell with it, just yank the power cord out. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
