Switching off PTCL Smart TV Box


New Member
Is it necessary to switch off the PTCL Smart TV box when ever it is not in use? Generally what I do is turn the TV off from the remote and leave it on from the main switch, but someone told me that your not supposed to do that and instead turn the box off from the main switch, as it can ruin the box. Can someone please clarify this for me and advise on how true this is.

Its not necessary to turn the Smart Box off, you can leave it on it wont cause any problems to the box it would just consume unnecessary electricity.
If you have frequent power cuts then you should switch off the box from the mains. Otherwise there is no harm in leaving the box on from the mains and switching it off from the remote.
