My Xbox turns off every time i turn off my TV or switch inputs on it. Was wondering if this is normal or not and if not is there a way to fix it.

I've seen power-saving surge protectors that kill power to all attached devices when a designated one is turned off - you don't happen to have one of those, do you? (here's an example: http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Conserve-Smart-F7C007q-Energy-Saving/dp/B003P2UMQ2/ref=wl_it_dp_o_npd?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3T83IHCKEPUTJ&colid=31VNU9W6KSYEL).

That wouldn't account for it also turning off when you switch inputs I guess. It's worth noting that the 360 (at least the older models) is supposed to be plugged directly into the wall, and not into any kind of power strip, as it's quite hungry for juice. You could try that, if you're not already.
