      SKY+ Box Turns itself on for 5 Seconds Overnight

      My SKY+ box turns itself on for 5 seconds at about 4.30am almost every night.

      After being manually put on standby some time earlier it comes on just long enough for the hard drive to spin up - then promptly shuts itself down again.

      Is this normal? Does anyone know if it can be prevented via a configuration setting?

      I dont have sky+ but I do have several freeview boxes that turn on briefly around that time for a config update. I'm assuming your box will be doing the same, I only noticed mine doing it because if the hard drive.

      Re: SKY+ Box Turns itself on for 5 Seconds Overnight

      I figured it might be something like that (e.g. config update/EPG download)... but is there anyway of configuring the time when it occurs, or is there a way to turn it off completely short of unplugging the box overnight?

      Thanks.
