Question  Power On/Off(standby) stops Live TV - Should resume
Post: #1
When sending XBMC to Standby while running in Fullscreen Live TV, playback is stopped.

Playback should resume, when user turns on PC again - Just like a normal TV:-)

Is this a bug report, a complaint, a feature suggestion or what?

This is either a bug or a missing feature when resuming from Standby - Behavior should obey the option "Continue Last channel on Startup"

This only works for me, when I completely power Off/On or Restart Openelec/XBMC.

Can anyone confirm this behavior? Then we can raise an request.

Are you expecting the backend to keep recording and start from where you left off, or simply start "live" on the same channel?

It should resume "Live TV" - then behavior will be exactly the same as an normal TV.

It is not a normal TV. Live TV is not "Live". It may be paused, rewinded and fast forwarded. I think this is where some of your arguments fail.

I think the OP's point is that you can set the system to display the last shown channel immediately it powers up - but that this doesn't work if you use standby. I'd infer from his posts that it needs a restart of XBMC to trigger the "start showing live TV again on the last channel you watched" routines, but this obviously doesn't happen if you're merely resuming from sleep.
