No Standby during playback of TV or video

The Vero4K doesn’t sleep during playback of TV or a video file. The screen is black and the LED is red for a short moment but then the Vero4K wakes up again.

To use the standby I have to stop the playback first :frowning:. This doesn’t work on the following ways: 1. Standby initiated by the TV via CEC and 2. Standby initiated from Kodi over the power menu.


I didn’t consider that someone would hit standby during playback. I’ve changed the behaviour so the video should now stop and the standby mode will then be activated.

Hopefully the issue is now addressed with the following commit:

I’d appreciate it if you could test this and provide feedback before we potentially release this as an update to other users. To test this update:

  1. Login via the command line
  2. Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list
  3. Add the following line: deb stretch-devel main
  4. Run the following commands to update: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
  5. Your system should have have received the update.

Please see if the issue is resolved.

I also recommend you edit /etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.


For me that’s not a use case for video but often during TV playback. So I need to power off the TV and all devices (AVR, Vero4K) go to standby mode.

Now I have tested your fix and it works as expected. I’m very very happy. Many thanks to you SAM

Have a nice evening

Glad to hear this, thank you for your feedback.
