    My wife is “Remote Challenged” and has a difficult time turning things off with our Sat Receiver Learning Remote. To try and make it easier on her, I said she just needs to turn off the TV (requires hitting the TV button and power button on remote) she isn’t getting it and is just turning off the Sat Receiver leaving the TV on.

    My question is, can I harm the TV by leaving it on with no signal (black screen) during the day/over night. Is this a battle worth fighting?

    Setting aside my concern for the ecology, the worse that will happen is you'll hasten its demise by accelerating its life.

    You're a good candidate for a universal remote with macro capability. She'll be able to turn everything on/off by pushing one button.

    Santa brought me a RatShack/Kameleon. Check it out. You'll either love it or hate it. For me, it's both. [​IMG]
