LNB supply voltage does not switch off (1 Viewer)

I just bought a Terratec CINERGY S2 PCIe DUAL.
The LNB supply voltage is turned on when I first watch TV. After watching TV, MediaPortal does not switch off the voltage. I measured this with a voltmeter at the coax cable.
Stopping the TV Service switches off the LNB power supply.

Using the DVBViewer Terratec Edition, the LNB voltage is switched off when I stop watching TV.

Using my PCTV DVB-S2 Stick (461e), the LNB voltage is switched off when I stop watching TV with Mediaportal.

So, this seems to be a problem with the combination of MediaPortal and Terratec CINERGY S2 PCIe DUAL.

I tested this with MediaPortal TV Server 1.18 and 1.19.

Is there anything I can do to switch off LNB voltage after watching TV? (Stopping TVService every time is not an Option due to scheduled recordings.) The PC runs 24/7, so the extra (unnecessary) power consumption adds up. Also I'm not sure how healthy this is for the LNB.
