    If you are watching live tv and have the same channel on all day, and do not touch the remote, will the TiVo Mini come up and ask me if I am sill watching, because of my inactivity?I called TiVo support, and they told me if I put the Power Setting to Manual, (so it never goes to sleep), that I won't get this message. I just need to confirm this before I purchase a TiVo Mini. This is what I found in the support area: message 2.png

    That display is correct. You have no control over it either. After a few minutes the Mini will replace that display with a moving message to hit Live TV or OK/S, but that seems to vary depending on s/w and h/w version.

    What Joe said. Also, the Mini doesn’t have the Power Saving setting found in the DVRs.

    I think there are some threads on TCF where users have used scripting on a PC or a Raspberry Pi to keep the TV signal alive, avoiding the “still watching?” prompt.

    Why doesn't the 4 hour prompt work for you just curious?

    I leave a television on all night, and don't want to have keep waking it up.

    Why do you leave it on all night?

    I put the channel on one of the Music Choice Soundscapes channel, and turn the tv off. The audio still comes through my small stereo speakers.
    The soothing music helps me sleep.
