A couple of minutes after hitting the power button on the remote, the tv turns back on. I turned off the screen saver, and that helped once, but it's happening again.

Try putting the remote in a drawer after turning TV off.

Its possible the power button is sticking.

Also, watch the led on top of remote.

See if it flashes before TV turns on.

My Tv turns on by itself with the new equipment hooked to it.....   the only way it will not is if I disconnect the HDMI cable from the back off the SBT...    8 calls to customer service...

Do you have CEC enabled on TV and STB?

If so, try turning that off.
