    Hi - I have seen similar but nothing I worry about to be honest. I do a semi regular [once every couple of weeks] total shut down; switch off the rocker switch at the back left of the box; and fully unplug from the power socket. Leave it 5 mins and power it all back up again. Hey Presto! All functions seem to go faster. At the end of the day the box is a small computer - it just needs a rest to give itself a bit of a hard reset - like any PC enjoys. Try that and see what happens.

    Hi Cestrian. We are aware of this and working on a fix. In the meantime, please change your autostandby setting from "Never."

    Hi Jesse, I thought the option of "Never" under Auto Standby had been removed in the last software update?

    You are right Scuttlebroom the option did disappear with the last software update and since then I have it set for 4 hours whereas prior to the update I had it set to "Never"
    Jesse do you suggest I set it for something different than 4 hours now ?

    I had no picture at all when I switched on the box and TV on 2nd April 2013. Turning the box off using the rocker switch at the back resolved this problem. Thanks.
