Change to USB functions.

Has there been an update to the V6 box in the last few days (possibly firmware) that affects the way the USB works?

I have used the USB socket to provide power to my Nest Thermostat for a number of years (as they are side by side in the living room) however in the last 24 hours when the V6 box goes to sleep it also seems to turn off the power to the USB which has never happened before.

If this is a change, does anyone know if there is a setting that can be adjusted to keep the USB powered at all times?

Thanks

Re: Change to USB functions.

Hi Tony 

Have you tried adjusting the power save settings:

Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Power Saving Settings > ✔️ Always On.

It might work continually then?

🤞

Hi Tony 

It's worth a try Sir.

You could also try setting the Power Saving Setting to > Connected Low Power.

🤞

No, is the short answer.

All the physical connections on a V6 should be active all the time.
