    Hi,

    I was wondering does anybody know how to stop a iptv stream on my VU solo2.
    The only way I can find is to hit the power button on the remote.
    Anybody any ideas? Thanks

    well cant say as Ive seen any posts asking how to STOP IPTV streaming lol

    Im not sure what you mean.... the stream is active any time you are connected to the net & have the box set to any of the channels streamed... you cant exactly STOP the stream but you can stop using it by switching to your FTA Sat fed channels (IF you have a sat feed connected & setup to receive FTA channels). When you are viewing through your FTA Sat feed you are not using your IPTV stream.
    Putting your TV on FTA Sat fed BBC1 could be what you are trying to do as this isnt streaming/using your broadband to receive signal, IF you only have an IPTV sub & dont have a Sat feed connected for FTA channels your box will be streaming 24/7 when ever it is turned on!

    Yes I only have an iptv sub and no sat feed. I was just hoping that there was a button that would stop the stream like the square stop button when watching a recording.
    The wife would just turn off the tv and not the sat box, so iptv would be streaming all day.
    Thanks for your reply BeakyFord.

    Im with you now... This is one of the reasons why when I make an image I include setting up a FTA Sat feed then create a bouquet for these channels, this gives you the option to place the box on none streaming channels when not in use as well as allowing you to record on the IPTV side while watching FTA (helps IF IPTV isnt multiroom activated & reduces unwanted internet traffic/usage)

    Set up HDMI cec and it will turn the box off when you put the tv into standby

    true but wont this then turn the TV on when the box wakes to scan? I have HDMI turned OFF for this reason as hearing voices comming from downstairs at 7am isnt a great way to wake up lol

    yes that may sort the net usage but then the box wont update or scan, hooking up a Sat feed is simple way to sort it (assuming you have a sat feed available to be connected)

    hdmi cec could be set not to wake the box & the timers for scanning etc could be changed to suite when the box will be in use... that would work but its not ideal

    probably best to go the hdmi cec on route but set not to wake the box as gibbletts has said then perform updates/scans manually once a week

    dont know why you think it won’t update, the box still does updates just doesn’t send a signal to turn the tv on I’ve had my duo 2 running like that for years and never had any problems
