Multimedia Receiver with Auto Sleep Mode
Posted on 2013-12-13
In our conference room at our office, we currently have an Onkyo TX-NR1007 receiver. This things works wonderfully and has all the functionality we need.
The only issue we run into has to deal with heating in the cabinet. It is in a closed cabinet closet to the ground and if the door is closed (most of the time) then the heat really collects in the cabinet. I understand that most receivers will put out a lot of heat from all the power they supply to the necessary speakers and other devices. This is a small setup we have in a conference room.
I am wanting to know if there is a way to get a receiver that will automatically power off after say 2-3 hours of inactivity or just after 2-3 hours. Most conferences we have in this room last an hour at most or sometimes 2 hours. If we had a receiver that could be programmed to just automatically shut off after 3 hours, that would be great.
I am simply trying to find a fix without having to redesign the cabinets it is put in. This may or may not be an option but I wanted to check and see what some of the experts here could offer for advice. Thanks in advance.
