Turn off Power button Functionality

Is there a way to disable the power/standby button on the front of the Roamio?

Can you be more specific? You don't want the TiVo to go into standby when you press the standby button?

Yes, I have turned off the lights, but the kids keep turning it on standby anyway.

Just curious, but why do you dislike this? There's no disadvantage I'm aware of (and a few advantages).

I am picturing a toddler that has figured out cause affect during inopportune times.

I don't think it is possible

No. The only way would be to physically cover it with something and secure it there.

I guess, if you often watch live TV, that it would be a problem as you would lose your buffer. If you watch recorded (or recording) shows, just turn it back on.

And with the 30 minute buffer limit, I rarely watch live TV these days. But my habits are not necessarily yours.

Maybe relocating the TiVo out of reach of aforementioned toddler?
