Just a couple comments. The bearings will not last longer if they "stop once in awhile". Acually, bearings last longer if they run all the time, stoping and starting puts wear and tear on them. The other issue is software updates. The Dish 6000 only downloads software updates if the reciever is off (but still plugged in). If you use plug and power or another system, you will never get updates unless you leave it on once in awhile. Now the last comment. Plug and power modules can be controlled with IR, but you need a special adapter. It is a small black box that recieves IR signals and then passes on RF signals to the plug and power modules. Plug and power is Radio Shacks name for X10. Try 10.com to see if you can find it, I think All for one had an old IR universal remote that came with or could be ordered separately this adapter I am talking about. Not sure. I hope this helps...
