Whilst watching TV yesterday, a message flashed up and although I can't remember the exact wording, it said " Your box will switch off in ( so many minutes etc). Please press OK if you wish to continue watching. What is this and wyy does it do it?
I can understand that if the TV is not being used. but having it come on whilst viewing seems a bit strange to me. Why should it power down if the TV is transmitting?
If there has been no button pressed on the remote for a set period, 4 hours, it assumes nobody is watching the TV and puts TiVo into standby to save power.
Hi there hansi,
Sorry for any bother experienced with this.
As mentioned by Ernie_C, this does sound like your equipment may be set to power saving mode.
The purpose of this setting is to help save energy and money on your electricity bill by automatically going into standby mode.
Not to worry though, you can certainly adjust the Standby Settings on your Virgin TV box.
Hope this helps,
