Temporary disconnecting power of cable boxes while on vacation

What is the longest amount of time I can uplug all cable boxes while on vacation?  I would not unplug the DVR to prevent missing future scheduled recordings; only the periferal boxes.  I also understand that I can stop the service for up to 9 months; that's not what I'm asking.  Lots of places recommending to unplug electronic devices like TVs, computers, etc to save on electricity while on vacation, but none say anything about FIOS TV cable boxes.

The power of the units you are asking about is so minuscule that it won’t make any difference in your electric bill.

Leave everything on and running. The boxes and other devices may require pushed out updates which often occur after they are turned off for the night.

just leave them on the power.
