From Sunday (NY Times and it was in the local paper): Set top boxes constantly on I would think that TiVo could fix this with a software change...even for my S3's. Why not? Bring back standby mode (and even a selectable 'idle' mode like my TV has), let the TiVo go to sleep and spin down the drive. You could keep the RAM active. If a recording is scheduled, wake up and record it. I like the two half-hour buffers, but I don't need them to be constant. I would have no problem with a 5 or 10 second delay on 'waking up' the TiVo. How about it?
