    I was rudely awakened this morning by the dulcet tones of countdown. Having cursed my neighbour for having his tv on loud it transpired it was ours that had switched itself on.
    This coincides with my Aura box being updated yesterday. I have no idea what may have caused this, anyone else woke up to count down this morning or any idea what may be the problem? Do I need to call an exorcist?

    Regards

    Paul

    Check HDMI CEC settings...

    Sounds like the Aura booted and switched the TV on.

    Good news for anyone with a Windows 10 laptop especially if it has HDMI Out.

    Windows version of VLC has upnp options that can access Live TV and recordings using the 4K DLNA Media Server,

    Something to be considered for the future, perhaps: If the Aura is displaying the settings screen when it is switched off, can it resume to, say, the home screen when it is switched on again? (Instead of going back to the settings screen.)

    Is the first line of the 'key changes' screen meant to have the date in full?

    I shut it down with long push - OK from live TV on retiring.

    I have my aura set to go into full sby midnight to 07:00. This allows the aura app to view live breakfast TV without having to use the remote to wake the box.

    It's in active sby (red led) when I enter the room.

    I love the DNLA functionality. But just to be clear - are all Full HD recordings and HD Live channels only transmitting in SD? A quick test using VLC on my PC makes it look so.
