    TiVo Stream 4K turns my Vizio back on after about 70 seconds.

    First time I had it happen though it was problem from using another TV remote in a different room. But I have proven its the Stream 4K doing it. With no power going to the Stream 4K the Vizio stays off for longer than a hour. But restore the power to the Stream 4K the TV turns on after 70 sec.

    Any suggestions welcomed.

    Same problem here. Stream hooked up to a Denon AVR, and then Vizio.

    I found that saying 'turn off' to the voice assist keeps it off.

    Same here. I just posted another thread before seeing this one. Very frustrating.

    Make sure yo go to the Andriod TV Home screen before turning off, certain apps, mainly youtube tv , when left running will make the tv turn on again after power off. It has to do with the audio stream/link I believe.

    Same issue with Samsung TV and Yamaha receiver. Turning off CEC is not an option since I use it for my other devices.

    Can you elaborate? Settings button on bottom left? I'm not home now so I'm going by memory.

    Same here, Denon/Vizio combo. I thought it was just me. This device is so buggy that I'm considering pulling it and sending it back to where it came from. It's not even worth the $50 I paid for it. But I'll give it a couple of weeks to see if they get the kinks worked out via firmware. Teaches me for buying a brand new product rather than waiting a few months.

    6 hours
    12 hours
    Never

    Fantastic. Last night and now while at work it is on the tivo home screen . This info will supply peace of mind. Also...sad to see SiriusXM's app is pcm audio. It did sound very good. My tv has the older version of the app with DD 2.0.

    Even in sleep mode, my TV / AVR would still remain on. Who want's that?

    I had set the sleep setting but turned it off because when watching something on another device the TV would suddenly turn off when the Stream 4K shut off.
    I really don't get this thing. Last night I used the Google Assistant and said "power off" then went to bed. I woke up this morning and the TV was on with the Chromecast screensaver on. I have no idea when or why it came on.

    I'm hoping the Stream4k goes to sleep and does nothing else. I use my receiver for 24 hrs a day. I go to sleep listening to SiriusXM and prefer to never turn it off.

    Well are they on top of the always on HDR issue? I tried chat today and they were pretty much clueless.
    So then the person types that I need to use chat or call a phone number.o_O

    I was like what? I'm on chat with you right now. And the support page only gave me an option of chat and email. It never game me an option to call.
