    7666 green button in the UK

    In the UK the red and green buttons are used for digital teletext (as they should be). This means that the green eco button is no longer available. Most of the functions are duplicated elsewhere in the TV settings menu and therefore can still be used with the exception of the ultra useful "Screen off" option (at least not that I can find). This means that in the UK this function is effectively disabled which is a real shame as it's brilliant if listening to music via USB.

    Ideally the eco menu should be available through the adjust button on the remote in addition to green. At the very least the screen off function should be switchable in the TV settings menu.

    Hi Guilbo,

    Even if the green button is not enabled for energy saving on digital channels as it's used for teletext in UK. However it still works if you select a different media source like HDMI or a Blu Ray player.

    Regards,

    Thank you for the response, Marco. Much appreciated. Although this is helpful it doesn't change the fact that the screen off functionality should be available on all inputs. It is the only item in the green button menu which isn't duplicated elsewhere in the TV settings menu. Like the rest it should really have an alternate place to select it.

    Hi Guilbo,

    You can also access the [Screen off] mode via the options menu.

    1. While you watch TV, press the ‘OPTIONS’ button on the remote control to display the options menu.
    2. Press the cursor down to select [Eco settings] and press the ‘OK’ button.
    3. Select [Screen off] and press the ‘OK’ button to confirm.
    4. The TV screen will switch off; only the sound is available from the TV.

    Regards,
    Marco

    Hi Marco, thanks for trying but sadly that doesn't work.

    Options whilst watching the TVs own tuner gives the following options:

    What's on
    Subtitles
    Subtitles Language
    Audio Language
    Dual I-II
    Common Interface

    Status

    There is no Eco Settings menu.

    Software is 0.14.99.0. Bug?

    Thanks for trying anyway.

    Hi Guilbo,

    Just a quick update regarding your issue.

    I escalated your issue to the technical team. Since the green button is used for digital text in UK, it is not possible to activate the screen off feature even through the menu.

    Your request is now being analyzed by the development team and will be considered for a future update.

    I would like to thank you for bringing it to our attention.

    Regards,
    Marco
