Question Samsung TV switching skybox on


Novice Member

First time on the forum and thanks for having me.
I recently purchase a "32" H5500 Series 5 Smart Full HD LED TV."
I connected it to a skyhd box via HDMI cable.

I have the facility to switch my TV on at a certain time (like an alarm clock set for 05:00) The problem is when the TV switch on the sky box is in standby mode and no signal is received to the TV.
How can i switch the sky box on when the TV switches on. Don't want to leave the box on all night.
Can you send some type of signal through the HDMI cable to the sky box?

Would really appriciate some help.

Can I ask why you want to switch your Tv on at a preset time?
If you have a smartphone or tablet, iPhone/iPad etc you can use the Sky app to switch your SkyHD box on remotely via Wi-Fi.
