Shutting off power strip when not watching television

Message 1 of 2

Before I subscribed to FIOS I always shut off my power strip on my plasma television to save money on my electric bill.  I continued to so, but shortly after I subscribed to FIOS,  a technician had to give us a new box.  My son is guessing we needed a new box because of shutting off the power strip.  My electrical bills are considerably higher now. 

 

Do you think we will have problems if we shut off the power strip when not using the television?

 

Thanks!

The only ptoblem with shutting off the power strip is how long you have to wait for the box to reboot when you turn it back on. Also most of Verizon's updates occur at night while you are sleeping.
