Neither of us could figure out how to get those blue and red lights (and the unit) to be powered down so its not draining the battery. The Kenwood radio is off. Both TVs are off. The antenna booster is off. But, we can't figure out how to turn the HDMI panel off. Any ideas? Is it even drawing power or is it fine to stay on? Thanks again in advance.
It plugs into an outlet, right? If so then the answer is simple, an outlet switch. http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-F7C016q...+outlet+switch
I don't have an HDMI splitter in my 2012, but I use outlet switches like these to power off the televisions when I'm not going to be using them— televisions also draw power when turned off, in order to be able to receive an "on" signal from the remote.
