If you are talking about going to Standby, that function, along with most functions, are turned off on purpose while in KZ. The whole point of KZ is that it's a place for your kids where they don't have the ability to do anything to your Tivo except watch their shows.
Yes, I meant standby. Can you point me to some place at Tivo that documents this "feature"? I see nothing in the FAQ. Is the idea that if you turn it off you might be able to get to shows that are not controlled by Tivo? I knew I couldn't play a DVD (I assume this will be fixed at some point).
I know I can just turn off the TV, but the reason I want standby mode is that I often have the audio going through another speaker (Soundmatters Mainstage) that has no off button -- it just just goes into standby when it isn't receiving anything. So unless Tivo goes off (into standby), it won't go off.
I know there's very little difference between on and standby, but there's something reassuring about the lights going off and the little red light coming on.
