Whether or not to shut it down is completely the decision of the user. But for example there might be some guys worried about running their laptop battery down so they prefer to shut it down. Or some guy who is really concerned with his power usage in general and wants everything off if he isn't using it. However, in my case since VDR is my main tv/media source, it would be annoying to have to boot the computer every time someone wanted to watch/listen to something, therefore the box stays on 24/7. Thus, never having use for shutting down. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
