What's the difference between unplugging the power cord from the back of the pvr vs. holding down the power button on the top of the pvr box?

No current electronic devices truly turn off; they actually go to standby mode. Unplugging means the system has to start from zero, and may prevent updates happening in the background.

Thanks for explaining that they are different, and how so, I always wondered why we couldn't just use the power button. Now I know the uncomfortable yoga is worth it. Good to hear the reasons why!
