There web site just says it is more efficient, it doesn't provide wattage, etc. information....
More efficient than running two Premieres to get 4 tuners?
Have they posted what the power usage is for the box anywhere?
According to the original filing
I am guessing 32W would be with Analog.
So at 24 wattss that would be around the same wattage as the Premiere gets. I guess that would be more justification for me to get two elites and sell four premieres.
This could be in stand-by mode also.
Standby only cuts the video output.
On the Premiere FAQ, it also shows standby cutting power usage. It is very small, but it does list a difference.
yes. The power usage range is between 23 watts and 25 watts for the premiere.
I used to use standby all the time. But I rarely put my TiVos in standby anymore(the power usage had nothing to do with it)
and front bezel LEDs
I forgot about those.
you might try purchasing a device like this to monitor the energy usage of your device:
(Alleged) reasons to use Standby:
1) Will cause suggestions to be recorded sooner (i.e. avoids the half hour or whatever of no remote usage)
2) Prevents EBS alerts from ruining your recordings
How well do those work? I use several of the Kill-A-Watt meters but the model that doesn't lose memory if it loses power is around $50.
If the Belkin retains the memory with no power to it I wouldn't mind getting a couple of them.
EDIT: I see the price on the Kill-A-Watt has come down alot on Amazon since I got mine. It' s now only $26
So far I've never had any EBS issues around here on FiOS. But I'm not sure if that is because of fiOS or because we have not had any alerts or tests during any of my recordings.
I have gotten EBS interuptions on Fios here. (Not very common, but that is the area)
I had one once disrupt a recording and have been using standby ever since.
I had I think the 2nd or 3rd EBS the other night.. I *think* it's EBS, because what happened is the same thing that happened the other time(s) I saw it -- Tivo just went to black screen and was unresponsive to the remote for a minute or two... and there was a gap in things recording at the time.
So just plug it in to the UPS you should already have your TiVo plugged into and then plug the TiVo into the meter.
I want to put the UPS on it so I can see the draw of the whole unit with the TiVOs and other components on it.
SO are you saying it does lose memory when it loses power?
I really like the design of it . I might get one to use on one of my PCs. That one will be hooked up to a UPS.
Sorry, thought you just wanted to see what the TiVo drew.
I can't answer any of your questions about particular features of particular wattmeters.
