While I was at it I also measured the receiver :p.

I have an Onkyo receiver that doubles as HDMI pass-through which 
consumes a constant 45W at "idle".

It has no other power features so basically consumes 400kWh per year if 
always on.

That's also about 78 euro per year.

Well it has a "standby passthrough mode". Which lowers the consumption 
to 37W even... even when the monitor and computer are turned off... :-/.

I mean like, yay.

That's expensive for being able to switch inputs.

That's 7 euro per month.

I guess a good solution either requires a timer+remote control or some 
arduino-like device.
