If I turn the box completely off, not having it always in standby position the LED shines up brightly and does not go off. Or does it perhaps go off after a long time ? I shut it off on the back which I should not have done perhaps. Strange to have this light shining brightly when the purpose is to shut it down without the button on the rear.
Is it not then possible to record on an attached external drive when it is shut down ? It does not turn the box on when time comes to record ?
In Standby the box is almost completely active... only the HDMI output is off.
The Linux computer inside is fully active.
When the Box is in Standby you can connect via web interface, you can stream a program etc.
Wenn in Deep Standby, the box ist off. Only the front processor is acitve. It can receive IR commands from the remote control to wake up. It can also wake up the box automatically to start recordings.
The box will wake up from Deep Standby for timer recordings - but only, if you don't switch it off on the back. You should never switch it off on the back...
When in Deep Standby, the standby light is on. This is becase of regulatory reasons. All systems which are in Standby/Off status and still consume power need to have an indicator.
