BTW, since power consumption and heat seems to concern you, just curious
if you have measured or happen to know how much power your AV receiver
and TV consumes when in standby since you set them up on HDMI-CEC.
AFAIK, most AV receivers suck more than 30-40W just because the HDMI
electronics has to be powered all times in order to have CEC working...
