    The 'Watch' timer appears to only be available in the Guide and therefore is tied to a specific programme (which may not be available every day).

    Go into the Schedule of future recordings, the first entry is to add a new recording. If you select this you can then set a channel, start time date, and duration and which days of the week the recording is to be made.

    I don't want to set a recording. I just want to bring the Aura out of standby and let Auto Shutdown put it back into standby after an hour, or any of the pre-defined time periods.

    In my test above, setting a reminder for a program through the App caused the Aura to come out of standby and did not turn on my TV. If I did not interact with it any further, the auto shutdown would shut the box off after the set amount. I think this is what you are asking for?
    There is always news on every day, so I would say you are pretty safe using a news program as the 'wake up' reminder, worth a try? ....

    Ah! The crucial bit of information. I hadn't realised you had set the reminder via the App. I assume the reminder can be set to operate every day?

    OK, that didn't work. I went to set up a reminder on the app and found I could only set them individually for a programme. A reminder can only be set from the Guide so if I'm away on holiday I would have to keep setting one for each day as they appeared in 7 days time. This is not the solution I was looking for. I was expecting to be able to set a rolling schedule of daily reminders akin to a series link. The solution suggested previously says it can be done, but I've not been able to replicate it.

    I have created a reminder by doing the following:

    Recordings > Schedule > Reminder > + Add Reminder

    Select the channel you want to use, choose start time, then repeat and select every day.

    This created 8 reminders in the schedule. The only thing I don’t know is whether it will keep adding a new reminder each day or will run out after 8 days….

    I have a similar reminder set. Each of the day reminders repeat after a week. So you end up with a daily reminder - until something deletes the schedule.

    Thank you for that explanation - I've finally got it to work. Not sure how I managed to miss the blindingly obvious on the Recordings page. The big test will be in a couple of months time when I'm on holiday for 2 weeks.

    Glad to have helped

    Hopefully you can give it a try before you go away to see if it keeps appending the reminders day by day.

    Looks like it's working. I set up a full week's worth of reminders yesterday morning. The afternoon reminder (at 16:00) worked correctly and this morning there are still 7 days of reminders in the schedule.
