If used daily

The new Swisscom TV-Box only uses half the power of the previous box even when it is fully operational. Because it is fully operational in just 30 seconds, you can turn it off completely overnight or during the day or disconnect it from the power source. The energy consumption is virtually zero and all the recording functions are still available.

Longer periods of non-use

If you are not planning to use your device for several days or even weeks, e.g. during your holidays, we recommend you unplug it from the mains. This will reduce your energy consumption to zero. You can continue to use all the recording functions and still enjoy Swisscom TV 2.0 on your smartphone or tablet. When you start up again, wait until the modem is connected to the Internet before reactivating the TV-Box.
