Does your Sky HD box switch to standby at night?


Distinguished Member
Maybe I am going mad, but my Sky HD box has taken to switching itself to standby during the middle of the night. Every time I come down in the morning now it is on standby!

Any ideas?

I think its the new energy saving thing sky have started doing. It can be turned off be changing the settings using your remote.

^^^ if you are not watching it, why do you need it on? Does the GREEN led look nicer than the RED one or something? ;)

(if you are watching it, then the Sky box will warn you that its going to turn to standby and you can cancel it). Sky saves the planet through energy-conservation - I think not.
