Question: Is there a way to have the receiver automatically power off after I stop an AirPlay session from my iOS device? I often use AirPlay to play music in Zone 2, and since I'm in a different room the receiver doesn't always get turned off.

Apologies for not reading through the whole thread, but a search didn't turn up much.

Thanks.

don't all these new receivers have a sleep timer? You could set it to turn off after a certain amount of time.

Yeah but that's a sleep timer for the whole receiver, right? It seems like shutting off power when I'm in the middle of a long broadcast would suck. I really just want to be able to hit stop on my ipad and have it shut off the receiver - like if there's no active stream coming in from the active input for XX minutes, then just turn off. A smart auto sleep I guess...

The way my receiver (AVR 1700) goes to standby is after I specifically select iPhone/iPad as the music output (basically de-selecting the receiver in the airplay button). If I just press stop in the music player or close the music cover, the receiver doesn't go to standby.
