Re: V6 360 BOX RED STAND BY LIGHT?

Is it a V6? or a 360?

It can't be both - it's one or the other. I'd guess it's a V6 that's been software patched to 360, but in which case it's not a V6 anymore, it's now a 360.

You can check which you have here 

Regardless, the standby light should be red (not sure where you're getting blue from) - and if the box wakes up and all is ok... then all is well.

This is the latest upgrade for the 360, there was a pop up screen announcing it this morning, by popular request the standby light is now red

(and it was blue)

Yes it is a V6 which now has 360 software, so still a V6 box! the V6 box is the hard ware.not the software, which was TIVO and now Horizan 4.

With regards to the colour of the light, after the software change (Not upgrade as may people seem to be calling it.) the stand by light was Blue and still is, on one off my boxes.

I can see this causing fun with the online help files...

Have you tried turning the box that is still Blue on and off. Both my boxes this morning were Red and are still on 4.31. 

I think I preferred the Blue light.

Re: V6 360 BOX RED STAND BY LIGHT?

That all well and good, but my software is still at v4.31 and I don't get that screen showing me the changes.

Yes I also like the Blue.

The problem is, from what I read on this forum, people don't like change and winge about the smallest things, how does "white light On" look similar to" Blue light stand by"?
