If you set TV1 to a channel on a different Mux to the channel being
recorded, before switching off prior to a timed recording, you have a
much better chance of getting the other 50% !!!

Why switch it off in the first place?


Er, so as not to waste electricity? It gets incredibly hot if left on for any length of time...

36 watts (maximum) and I don't imaging it'll use much less than that on
standby.


Standby mode stops the hard disk from spinning and turns off all
but one amplifier. The processor and memory are still powered,
of course.

Do you know if the update downloads
automatically if the box is left on standby for the interim of the
update schedule?


It won't download it unless you're there to press at least
one button.
