Re: IGNITE TV/Box will not power off when using all power button

  My apologies for this not being a solution, but I just wanted to reassure you that I've had the same issue since I was talked into getting an Ignite package in December 2018.

  I spoke to their tech department on several occasions in the early days and was unable to determine the purpose of the 'All power' button on the remote. It seems to do exactly the same thing as the 'TV Power' button which is solely control the TV.

  I no longer bother with the 'All power'  and use the 'TV Power' button exclusively at the beginning & end of my television viewing days.

  Rogers have also been unable to explain to me why there is not a simple stop button on the remote to end the playback of recorded items or YouTube videos.  I've had to make do with the convoluted use of the 'last' and 'exit' keys which in the case of YouTube often take me completely out of the application.

  All that in addition to 7 months of waiting for a fix in their download and go service.

  Needless to say I am far from impressed with Ignite and would hesitate to get it again.

  It seems they rolled it out long before it had been fully tested and proven to work properly.

  OMG… I did not mean to get on such a rant although I feel much better for it.  Let's hope that Rogers eventually gets someone involved who knows what they're doing.

  Best of luck with your situation.

Re: IGNITE TV/Box will not power off when using all power button

I just had Ignite installed today. The technician paired my TV and sound bar to the remote. All of the buttons on the remote work when pointed at the box except the on/off button. No matter where I point the remote at the box it will not turn off unless I move my hand all over the place except pointing it at the box. Both of my boxes do this. Box 1 is about 6 feet away and box 2 is about 10 feet away. The technician said the boxes do not turn off. You have to turn off your TV and Sound Bar using their own remotes. There is a dull green lamp that is lit on top of the boxes. This doesn't seem right. Can anyone confirm this. Thanks.

 

Phil.

Re: IGNITE TV/Box will not power off when using all power button

Hi guys

 

Sorry for joining late in this discussion. I have read the resolution that we can use voice command "Power down" to put this box in standby state. My issue is that I have paired this Rogers remote my my Panasonic plasma as well. Now the situation is when I power down Rogers box and then press power button on remoter to power off TV, it turns on Rogers box again and turns off TV. So this does not solve the problem. This is forcing me to use two remotes, one to turn off Rogers box and second to to turn off TV. In this age we are forced to use two remotes?

 

My concern is that if I just turn off TV, this Rogers box will keeping running TV channel and consume data for no reason. In old days when it was cable box, it did not matter if cable was running or not but now it matter because this box is consuming data bandwidth as well for no reason.

@rookie8155 : Suggestions (I don't have IgniteTV but have been following the IgniteTV threads):

 

1. Don't worry about the data usage since it is relatively small and unlimited.

2. Tune to a channel that minimizes data usage like one of the Stingray music channels, before turning off the TV.

3. Tune to a channel with nothing on it.  On Digital Cable channel 950 is black. I often do that when I leave the TV room for a while.  If that's not the case for IgniteTV, tune to a channel that you cannot get.

4.  I believe there is an option to set the time before the box goes into standby.  Select the minimum amount of time in that menu option?

5. Most TVs will power down on their own if they don't get a signal after a short period of time, like 10 minutes. This may be a menu option that you need to invoke in the User Menu.  That way you can put the box into standby and the TV will turn itself off.  

6. Use HDMI-CEC functionality to have the box turn off the TV. You'll need to turn on HDMI-CEC in the IgniteTV box and the TV. This doesn't always work, but check out the following post:
