Catching up AGAIN...

When my downstream devices are off, the Edge goes into a blinking blue (cannot establish downstream link) and stays there indefinitely, blazing away with its heat generation until the end of time.
I will most certainly try this and report back.

The same thing happens when I turn off the source, the projector, and then my receiver.

Looks like everyone else has already properly corrected the misunderstanding- but just in case there are still those confused.. When all input sources turn off, the Edge will go into standby mode (if auto standby is enabled). When a single source (like a Tivo) is left on all the time (a Tivo can't record upcoming shows if it's off!), the Edge will remain in full-power ON mode all the time, wasting energy and putting out quite a bit of heat, even if the far-end devices (TV, Projector, AVR, etc) are all turned OFF.
I have confirmed with 1.61 that this still occurs. I see now that there is apparently 1.62 available. I have not tried that, though their changelog does not indicate anything relating to power moding has changed.
I enjoy my Edge but if it could go into standby when all downstream devices are off, I would be much happier.
