How to shut down the PCH

How to shut down the PCH
Hello,

When I press the powerbutton on the remote the green led becomes oronage, but the PCH is still turned on. Only the screen becomes black.

So, I always pull the plug out of the PCH, but i ask myself: Can this damage your PCH?

it isnt possible to fully put the device in stand by. I just pulled mine out to take the HD out and the box is hot and the HD wasn't even on. I can imagine it's pulling a lot of power to sit there and do nothing. I don't know why they didn't make this device to fully standby. Silly IMO.

Except no one tells you that you need to unplug it, htne plug back in, in order to turn it back on. No way to do it from remote.

hmm.. that could be. I admittedly didn't test that. My local power co. has slight brownouts from time to time so I have made habit for years to unplug my favorite toys when not in use. If your power outlet is in an inconvenient location, you might want to get an inexspenive toggle switch to plug in between the PH and the wall. I used to do that with my ceiling mounted projector.

I can say that the latest firmware made my PH much more responsive to everything. Maybe this was addressed. I'll have to test tonight.

I don't disconnect the unit from the wall outlet, I do so from the back of the PCH unit... much faster. Smile

A few users have bought the remote power plugs to save unplugging, they are about £10 for a pack of 3:-

It works fine that way, though I'm not sure if the internal HDD is affected by the power loss when pressing that OFF button. The Blue LED goes on for a fraction of a moment even if the PCH is powered down.

...and these things should be programmable in my Harmony.

Power+delete does NOT shut down your PCH. It will still sit there generating lots of heat. The only way to do it is to unplug the cord. Just found it out by burning my fingers on the heatsink after it was sitting there for a day after Power+delete.

Do all the lights go off completely? If there is any led lit at all then it isn't powered down completely.... see below.

To power off completely, press the power button on remote, count to 2 and then press the delete button. If you press it too fast or slow, it doesn't always work, you need a little delay between presses but not too much of a delay.

I can't shut it down/restart it completely. I always have the orange and red lights.

Disk doesn't spin, but those lights wont go away. I've tried power-eject, power-
delete, power. I have waited 1 sec between power and delete, 2 seconds, 5
seconds. No matter what i do, it's always as if i just had pressed power.

And when i press power again, the orange light becomes green, and the screen
appears almost instantly (not the splash screen, the real screen i had just before
i pressed power to shut it down), which makes me think it never has powered
down.

I have latest firmware.

Anyone got an idea ?
