Just finishing first-time setup of HD1000 after it sat in the closet for
3 years. (my fast-lane was too hectic upon purchase and my patience too thin)
I'm VERY happy with what I'm discovering about this unit..... Very glad
I finally pulled it out of the closet.!!!!!!
I read a lot in the forum about power supply issues on the HD1000. Can these be minimized if power to the unit is removed after shut-down? I know with a vcr and many monitors,... power supply is still handling power input while the unit is shut off.
Use the search function of this forum and see if you can find the info you need.
To answer your question, yes some people put it on a power strip (that has a switch) and turn it off after each use. Keep in mind you will have to wait for it to boot up each time. Is is REV-A or REV-B?
Hope this is helpful, Matt
