      Sky Box goes off at 6am every morning without notice

      My Step dad that gets up at 5:45 and turns on the tv. Sky is usually on but not always from the night before. Auto standby is enabled and does prompt telling us that its going to go off. I have also set an autoview on ITV at 5:30 so if i forget to change the channel, it comes on. ( He's fussy and doesn't like to change channel )

      Lately, at around 6am, the sky box goes off, even when it has just been turned on 15 mins earlier.

      After querying him about it, he says no message comes up on the screen telling him its going to go off and its always around 6am.


      Anyone got a reason for this? I am going to disable auto standby and he will tell me tomorrow if there is any difference.

      Thanks.

      I take it you are using an old basic box. What may be happening is that when you select to autoview it only plays to the end of the segment of the program you are viewing. Most will change at 6am. This is conjecture as it is so long since I used a basic box I can't recall how it works. It is a feature not available on newer boxes.
