Has anyone run into issues with the power manager function turning itself back ON lately? We normally leave the boxes on as we've run into fewer issues doing that than using variables. Over the last month or so, we've had multiple jobs where the boxes keep turning off. We've never seen problems with this before. Anyone else?

Thanks in advance.

Absolutely. I have one house with 10 spectrum boxes on Control4. We had it set to assume box was always on and to power on boxes every day at like 5am. They were always being turned off automatically even after changing the settings all the time.

Eventually these boxes all got the POWER NUMERIC ruction in the DEVICES MENU that gave us back discrete power on. Not a single issue since.

We used to love power and numeric when boxes had this (in our area). I hadn't looked at this function in these boxes for years as most providers took it away. We may have to go back to this if it's available. Thanks!

The box will often turn off after they force an update, or so I have been told.

I doubt they'll ever give us discrete power commands. Actually, I think the problem will take care of itself, once all content is streamed.
