Hi,

I have my DVD player connected by coax and my SB2 connected by fibre to the DVD input of my reciever.

The reciever has Auto Input enabled, but it will never detect the DVD player due to the fact that the fibre stay's lit even when the SB2 is put into standby.

Is there any reason why the SB2 hardware cannot switch off the led/laser which lights the fibre optic cable when the SB2 is put into standby mode.

This would be a nice feature to implement (time for a bug report?) that also could be used in a (rather) simple way to a remote power control of an amplifier.

there is already an enhancement request for this feature.
