Sky has released a firmware update for their HD receivers which enables 'Green Power Management'. This allows the Sky decoder to power itself off after a predetermined amount of time, saving power. This may cause some confusion with users who have previously left their decoders on full time.
Never fear, you are still able to do this if requred by following the instructions below:
- On your remote select 'Setup'
- Select 'System Setup'
- Select 'Recording Setup'
- Scroll to 'Energy Saving Level' and use the left & right arrow buttons to set the Energy Saving Level 'Never'
- Scroll to the bottom of the options and select 'Save Settings and Exit'.
Once you have set up energy saving a message will appear on screen approximately 60 seconds before the box activates standby mode.
