    I have Time Warner cable service with a Scientific Atlantic Explorer 8300HD as the DVR/cable box. I can control the box and do all functions with the Sony remote except power on/off. I am able to power on/off the TV and Home Theater box but I have to manually turn off the cable box. Is there any way to program another key or make a macro to perform this with the Sony remote? BTW, I can use my tablet and Able Remote to perform this, but would like to be able to just use the included remote.

    While you in TV mode, press the [option key] then scroll down.

    Same for the directv box. Yes you can get to the power on off from optiond then advanced but a single key would be much better. Hitting the dvr key will turn it on but not off. Still looking
    edit: if i remember correctly on the keyboard for the Revue there are three power buttons, one for STB, Receiver and tv. that was perfect. wish we had that on this remote.
