Configure your TV Box so that it switches automatically to deep stand-by after a certain period (between 1 and 9 hours). The TV Box will switch to deep stand-by if you do take no action during a certain period. We advise you to choose a 4-hour delay. Just before the TV Box switches to deep stand-by mode, you will see a warning on your TV screen: you will then have the choice to activate or not the deep stand-by mode.

  2. To watch TV again, simply press the on-off key.
  3. What happens with your recording? The TV Box will automatically leave the hibernation mode to start a planned recording.
