When does your HD box go into standby??


Established Member
just upgraded to sky HD a few weeks ago and ive noticed that my samsung box doesnt go into standby at 1AM like my previous sky+ box done! although when i get up in the morning it is in standby!

so does anyone know the time that they go into standby and is there a way of changing the time of when it goes into standby??

Probably wrong, but I thought they went in to standby after a certain time only if they'd been left untouched for a few hours, ie. could go in to standby any time

If Auto Standby is enabled, your box will go into standby either at 1am if you've not been using it, or 2 hours after you last actively used it. So, if you switched channels at midnight and then left it, the box will autostandby at 2am. The bewitching hour is 11pm onwards.

How Does Autostandby Work?.
