I'm sure this is a Frequently Asked Question, but I've been searching this BBS and googling my heart out, and can't find a direct answer. You folks here have been incredibly helpful to me with past questions, so I'm hoping you'll know.

I'm looking for a Discrete Power Off advanced function code for my high-def-Tivo.

I know the Tivo doesn't technically ever "power off", it just turns off its display output when you use the "Standby" code. But that's exactly what I want this code to do: Put it in standby rather than toggle it in and out of standby.

I suppose I could do menu-down-down-down-down-down-down-select, but if the player were already off, that would wake it up (menu works like a discrete power on sort of) just to turn it off again.

By the way, I'm using one of the OFA remotes that requires five digits for the entry of function codes. Currently, all my old 3-digit Tivo codes work if I precede them with two leading zeroes.

Sorry, but there is no discrete Standby code for TiVo.

If you have a JP1 remote and JP1 cable, you could use a ToadTog to remember the state of the TiVo, and only send the Standby command when you want to actually put the TiVo in standby mode.

Personally, since putting the TiVO in standby mode doesn't really do much, I just leave mine "on" all the time.

Darn. Well, maybe it wouldn't be so bad to wake it up just to put it to sleep again.

One reason I like putting it to sleep is this:

If you're actively watching something on one of its tuners, it will not use that tuner to record Tivo Suggestions, or record things that you've thumbs-upped. If you've put it to sleep, it'll record suggestions and thumbs-ups on both tuners.

Also, I like the completeness of being able to turn every device on, and every device off, with a macro. Yeah, that's kind of anal, I admit it.

Maybe you could program a macro that would ensure that neither of the tuners are being used. I'm not a Tivo user (my PVR is a ReplayTV) but with my Replays, if I bring up the list of recorded shows and play one of them, then stop it, it clears the tuner.

I have the HD10-250 tivo unit and I use EFC 152 to toggle the standby on and off. My remote is the RS15-2116.

The OP is looking for discrete power codes, ie "power on" and "power off" as opposed to "power toggle".

Sorry to bump this really, really old thread, but I'm fairly new to Tivo and managed to track down several discretes, including Standby.

Code:

Function     OBC   EFC
Stop          72   00037
Captions On   88   00229
Captions Off  89   00233
Standby       53   00152


Will post a new upgrade with these shortly.

Standby 53 is a toggle, not a discrete. I have been using it for many years with a ToadTog.
