Using Alexa to turn TV on/off only

I can set up Alexa to turn TV on/off while leaving the ignite TV box turned on all the time.  Are there any problems with this?  For example, will this cause any update issues for the ignite box?

Not that I can think of.  FYI, pressing the "All Power" button on the Rogers remote doesn't turn the Ignite TV set-top box off either... so, turning your TV off using Alexa isn't really any different.  The Xi6 will go into an idle state after a few hours of inactivity on its own.
