Hi,

I know this has been asked before. I have selected the option under audio to disable outputs when off, yet the optical stays on when I turn the device off. For my switch to recognize my other devices, I have to unplug my sb3. Is there a way around this?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

There already is an enhancement request about this in Bugzilla and it is being investigated. I suggest you go to http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1397 and vote for the bug if you have not done so already.

I've got two SB3s and a Transporter and none of them have this problem. If I tell it to go OFF, it does... tell it to stay ON, it does.

Do any other settings NOT work? Have you tried cycling the setting ON/OFF?

Do you mean the red LED will actually turn off? I thought that required a hardware change?

Sorry, I didn't FULLY read the original post. I use S/PDIF coax out which DOES turn off. However, I do use the optical out of my Transporter and am pretty sure the digital 'stream' turns off even though the LED may remain on.

I'll double check that for you.

I just checked it on my SB3 (black/silver model from 11/06) and it does turn off both optical and coaxial digital outputs, even though the LED remains on.

Yes, that's consistent with what I'm seeing - the stream is deactivated but the LED remains on.
