    I have connected my cable box to GTV HDMI in. While the GTV box is off, the TV signal can pass-through with the Quick Start option on, but cannot pass-through when the Quick Start option is off. Does anyone know any work-around? I have found the GTV becomes hot when the Quick Start option is on, so I prefer to set the Quick Start option to off.
    Thanks!

    That's the way it was designed, it says you will get pass through with quick start on but not when it is turned off.

    I suppose you could split the feed from your cable box with an HDMI splitter, and then switch feeds when your Sony is off ... but that would be yet another piece of equipment that would need to draw power.

    How many watts does the GS7 use when fully ON, when in Quick Start mode and when turned off (I gess zero watts!)?

    According to the Sony specifications: Power Consumption (in Operation) : 21W. Power Consumption (in Standby) : 0.5W. I have seen some people claiming Quick Start standby: 7W.
