|Device Type:||Cable Box|
|Configurations:||Search the file area|
15.60" wide × 3.25" high × 11.20" deep
39.62 cm × 8.26 cm × 28.45 cm
|Notes:||No discrete codes exist, however a macro workaround is possible for SARA-based units (and NOT Passport).|
First, go to the full Setup menu and under "Power On Keys", change the setting to "Power & Numeric" (if you do not have this option then the box is not running SARA and no macro is possible).
Power On Macro
Power Off Macro
Note that the behavior of this macro, including how much delay is needed, can depend on the firmware version the local cable company is running.
If the cable company powers down the hard drive when the box is idle AND runs firmware that ALWAYS tunes a channel (even if the one entered doesn't exist), then you may find that the amount of delay needed when the drive is off is greater than the maximum command timeout when the drive is already on. The end result is that the box will likely tune channel 1 (or whatever is the first available channel) when powering on, a mild annoyance if it is configured to turn on to the last viewed channel.
For more advanced control systems, power sensors work great when the AC outlet is configured to turn off with the box. This is not available for all firmware versions.
