As part of "Sky's committment to saving energy". The box turns off in the middle of the night presenting that screen, as according to Sky some people leave the boxes on 24/7. It can be turned off in the service menu and is called "Auto Standby".

Obviously a glitch in the new software means it is showing this in the morning instead of the middle of the night.

Just had this now, in the middle of watching the Scottish Cup final and recording the play-off. Fortunately i pressed backup to cancel as requested but of course if i had been away from the box it would have been yet another inexplicable failed recording. :mad:

It is a pain, I agree, but going into standby should not affect any recording.
