    Why no auto set top power on/off when connecting/disconnecting?

    cplawler

      Every time I connect to my SlingBox from SlingPlayer for iPad, I have to manually go through the somewhat clunky process of selecting the remote and then pushing the power button on the remote to turn the set top box on.  I then have to do the reverse when I am done.  Most set tops use lots of power and run very hot so it is not a good idea to leave them on all the time.

       

      Why not provide the option to automatically turn the set top box on when I connect, and off when I disconnect.  This would be a lot easier and cleaner from a user perspective.
