Denon DVD-3800BDIC Blu-ray player => Denon AVR-4311CI => Lumagen XS3D => Projector
Eventually, the path will be as follows:
Denon DVD-3800BDIC Blu-ray player => Lumagen XS3D => Denon AVR-4311CI => Projector
I (and I think most folks) never turn the Radiance off (nor the cable box). Thus have never had these problems.
I checked this 'always on' idea with Lumagen, and they said they recommended it, and said that the power consumed was minimal.
Also, not sure about a Tivo or MSC400, but with a Comcast Moto DCX (and others) dvr, the dvr is recording even when the unit is turned 'off'. Every discussion about this for the moto dvr that I have seen has recommended leaving it 'on' all the time.
But I am always open to being educated!
