    Hi,
    My new sky+ box switches itself off during the night.You leave it with the green on light displayed and come down to it in the morning and it displays a red light.
    My question is is their a powerdown mode and can it be switched off.My son watches sky in his bedroom when he wakes up in the morning(early).
    We never had this problem before with our old normal black sky box.
    If someone can help i would be grateful.

    Yes, there is an auto standby function that can be turned off in the services menu.

    Yes it is going onto auto stanby to save power, it doesnt need to be on to record anything by the way.
