Re: How much power use when on, and when in standby

TiVo was ~18W and practically nothing, so I'd expect V6 to be comparable.

It can't be more than whatever the power supply is rated to.

TV: XL+SkySports V6
BB: 200Mbps SuperHub: Arris

Re: How much power use when on, and when in standby

I'm actually getting a smart meter installed next week along with a monitoring device. We'll be checking various appliances for power usage ( new V6 & old TiVo+ first in line) & I'll post up the cost in £. My sister has a smart meter monitor & it's a great tool for seeing what costs most.
For the record, I don't work for any energy company.
Always learning!

Reviving this thread, but did you ever work out the energy usage of the V6 box, hhd?

Just trying to work out if it's worth turning it off remotely overnight, or just leaving it on standby for the 20hrs it's not being used.
