How Much Power does a Comcast Cable Box DVR use
Comcast Cable Box DVR: 46 Watts
- A cable box has electronics within. Mine has a fan and a spinning hard drive. When I turn the cable box off, it stays warm, so I was very sceptical that it was really saving very much electricity to turn it off.
- This Motorola Cable box Dual tuner and DVR has a mock sleep mode, using 43 watts instead of 46 watts.
- Watts: 46
- Kilowatts: 0.046 Kw.
- cost per minute: 1 hundredths of one cent (0.01 ¢)
- cost per hour: 55 hundredths of one cent (1¢)
- cost per day: 4¢
- cost per month: 84¢
