I have sources going to radiance, radiance to projector, with the audio hdmi from radiance to the receiver.
We do have a few people who leave the Pro on. Here is what to consider:
If you leave the Pro on all the time, then the Fan is on all the time. Since the fan is a mechanical device, it can wear out. For the 1U units the 60mm Sunon fan has a "Vapo Bearing" which we believe is reliable. So this may not be an issue long term, but it is still something to consider.
If you leave the Pro on all the time, the HDMI I/O chips continue to free run, and we have seen the I/O chip internal microprocessor get confused after being on a very long time (days to weeks). Not seen this much through, and so if leaving the Radiance Pro on works for you this is moot.
If you leave the Pro on all the time, and a source goes into what I like to call "Zombie Mode" (we believe we have seen this with DirecTV and AppleTV 4k), and there may be other devices) that this may look like "all is well" to the Pro input chip which can cause an issue since it will just be expecting good video and when the source comes out of Zombie mode, the Pro input chip may not be made aware that it should restart the connection. Again, this may not be an issue in your system and so may be moot. And you can include changing inputs on teh Pro to get it to restart the connection you want to use and this may resolve the Zombie source problam (assuming you have one).
So you can go ahead and try leaving the Pro on to see if it is a good solution for your system.
