Power Saver FAQs

Find additional insight on the Power Saver feature of Ignite TV with our frequently asked questions.

Will my recordings still work if my TV Player (XG1v3) is in Power Saver mode?

Yes, Power Saver will not impact the core background services provided by your TV box such as recording your favourite TV programs or sporting events.

How much energy will be saved by using the Power Saver feature?

Your energy consumption and energy savings depend on how much time your Ignite TV device is in Power Saver mode and what power-saving activities are going on in the background (such as scheduled recordings).

Should I turn my TV Player (XG1v3) off when I am finished watching TV?

Yes, power savings depend on how much time the device is in Power Saver mode. It is recommended that to maximize your savings, always put your TV Player (XG1v3) in Power Saver mode.

How come my remote control won’t turn off my wired TV Player (XG1v3)?

Because the remote communicates with the TV and TV box using different signaling technologies, one device would sometimes get turned off while the other was turned on. You can turn the TV box off using the Power button on the front panel.
