Can you record with box in standby mode?

New to Virgin. Can I record programmes when the V6 box is in standby mode?  Also having problems turning TV on and off. Sometimes have to hold power button for several seconds before it responds, and when trying to turn off the TV sometimes goes to standby mode and V6 box also goes on standby.

Re: Can you record with box in standby mode?

Yes, you can record when in standby.

The standby button on the remote serves two purposes.

Short press - put V6 into standby.

Long press - put TV into standby.

Re: Can you record with box in standby mode?

Yes. The box will still record in Standby mode.

To put the V6 directly into Standby requires two presses of the Standby button. If you only press it once it will go into Standby after 30 seconds. A long press will send the TV into & out of Standby if the correct codes have been programmed into the remote when setting it up.

Hi Peter2020.

According to the Power Savings Settings screen, "Don't worry, whichever setting you choose, all your scheduled recordings will still record"

Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Power Saving Settings.

Re: Can you record with box in standby mode?

Although I appreciate Peter isn't directly asking about remote recording, it's perhaps just worth mentioning that the "Eco" power-save option on the V6 doesn't allow you to login to the box remotely using the TV Control app to set/manage recordings while away from home.

It's perfectly fine for running recordings that are already planned.
