Default Uverse receiver HD light (blue) Help!

Hi, If you are using Uverse HD service, you know what I am talking about. The blue light on the receiver, that indicates HD service.

Okay, so on the main receiver when I turn of the receiver & LCD TV. The blue light goes away and only green light stays and it's fine & dandy!

Now in my bedroom receiver, when I turn off the receiver & LCD TV. The blue light stays on with green light.

Now you would think why is it a problem. First, why the mismatch? This is my curiosity!

Second, since the receiver faces me directly when I am on the bed, the blue light is kinda strong and hits my eyes directly at night and want me to fix it.

Any help, suggestions, experiences are welcomed from fellow uverse users!

oh btw, I love uverse service so far!

Thanks,

-G

What type of cables are you using in the bedroom?
Does the green circle around the power button go off?

Both of my uverse receivers go green link light only when put in standby, but I wouldn't exactly call the blue HD light strong.

I guess you might have answered my question. I am using hdmi with main box while component with bedroom receiver. May be with component cable this might be an issue, where receiver doesn't know that TV is in standby mode. I will switch to hdmi in the bedroom and check it again. Hopefully blue light will go away! I mean its not bothering me too much, but its more of curosity to solve the problem, the bug

Will keep u posted, when its fixed!

Duct tape over the blue light. You can probably tell by looking whether a show is HD or not, so you don't really need the light.

when you use HDMI cables, you get the blue light, and it shuts off when you turn off the box and the TV
when you use component cables, the blue light stays on, even when the box and TV are off

If you want the blue light to shut off when everything is off, you have to connect via HDMI

That's correct; I have been using the HDMI cables since I posted this question and problem is solved!

Thanks for all your replies!

The blue light was bright. I just took a black sharpie ans colored the led. It took about three times to get enough black on it. But now its not blinding, and you can still tell when the hd programming is there.
