Yes, I did. Plus gave her a copy of the manual I downloaded and printed. One thing I haven't been able to figure out yet but I suspect I know the answer to is if you have a recording in process do you need to keep the power on for the STB? I believe the answer is yes as long as it's a recording in process. A test of that got a warning that the recording would be canceled when I hit the power button while a recording I manually started was taking place. Then the next question would be, what about a recording that's scheduled for later? Does the unit turn itself on, do the recording and then shut itself down when it's completed? If it records without going through that process why did it tell me that the recording in process would end if I shut down the unit?
