QE65Q7FN loses Sky Q box after being in standby

Hi guys same problem this end ,

when tv is on the sky q is fine , but when the tv is in standby and turned back on over a period of time it cant see Sky Q as the box is locked up,

so something must be going on while the tv is in standby, i have changed HDMI cables , tried all 4 ports , am currently in 4 Arc, i am now on my 2nd box with an sky man booked for the 10th jan , sky know they have issues with their boxes so more than likley they will swap the box out ,

its a shame that the sky q box doesn't contain an event log which might point to something  ,

over the next couple of days i am going to dig out my old Panasonic if the sky box stays stable am going to have to put it down to the TV.

BTW model number is QE43Q60RATXXU

 

Regards

Hello

Would like to say I changed tv to lg oled and still suffer the same problems with sky q .

My resolve which works most of the time is switch tv on to the hdmi that sky q is on wait until it's all booted up then switch sky q on and it works.

This is definitely a sky prob as I have had 3 sky q boxes and they all do the same .

Identical issue with my new QLED Samsung, only difference being I have a SKY HD box and not SKY Q. Atleast twice a week I have to go into the setting and re-sync the remote to the sky box. SAMSUNG sort this out!! My much older Samsung worked seamlessly with the sky box, this new all singing and dancing model is plagued with gremlins

Has anyone found a solution ?  Brought a Q70 82in Samsung, each time the TV is shut down for a long period of time, when I switch it back on - it does not see the sky q box. I have to unplug and power up the box for the TV to see it.

 

Any thoughts / things to check ?

Hi Truejoker

You have to put your skyq box in standby each time you turn the TV off, I was having the exact same problem , but now since putting box in standby when not watching TV all is good now , let us know how you get on

@Truejoker  Have you set the Power Mode to either Active or None?  If Active Box automatically goes into StandBy after period of Inactivity.   if you set it to None you need still need to put Q Box into Standby by pressing the button on the remote, you will see the Box has an Amber Light.

 

Whilst ECO is recommended  for Power Saving (low power mode between 2.30 and 5.45 am ) I  am aware that some folk have problems with it.

I was more thinking not to put it into standby at all.  Bad for the environment and my engergy bill, but clearly a flaw between Samsung and Sky that needs focus to resolve!
