Anyway to keep VMS4100 on at all times?

Is there a setting on new vms4100 (vms 4100) that allows me to keep STB on at all times?  Currently when I turn off my Sony, the STB powers off automatically.  I can’t find a setting.  This is very problematic Bc I have a brother in Japan who uses sling box (slingbox) and he can’t make STB stay on or turn on unless my tv is on.  On all other STB, there is a user setting about power management but I can’t find.  Also is there anything on smart tv itself I could togglenso it does not “tell” STB it is off?

I have the VMS1100 and they way you get there is Menu/Settings/System/Media Server Settings/Auto Power Off then set to None

When you turn off your TV, you’ll probably also need to hit Menu on the remote to turn the VMS back on.

Also, check your TV and STB setting for HDMI-CEC or something like that.

Make sure that is disabled.
