I don't know, and it has run out of the button battery power so it won't display anything

Jase2985:

how accurate is the device you are measuring it with?


can it measure 1.5w?



TP-Link smart plug. When Network Standby is enabled, 31 - 35w. When disabled, but a Remote Start enabled 2.5w. Even if it had a margin of error of 20%, that's still massively higher than 1.5w advertised for Network Standby.

Anyhow, I've contacted Sony and they are now investigating. There's more than just me with the issue.

when you put your hand over the top of the amp over the left side, do you feel a lot of heat in standby?

 

i have turned off everything in the menu and it still is very warm in standby.

I haven't tested that, but have talked with someone whose receiver gets very warm on standby when 'Network Standby' has been enabled. HDMI "Standby Through" is another setting that consumes power. I've been using my receiver today, so can't check right now as it'll be warm already. When 'Network Standby' is disabled, mine only uses about 2.5w, which shouldn't generate heat (I would've thought).

 

Here are the settings to disable (helpguide.sony.net).

Mine has been powered off completely overnight. I put it on Network Standby a couple of hours ago. I put my hand on top and it's cool to touch. Maybe I need to leave it on longer as it's cold down here today.

HDMI Pass Through might be the culprit for the heat for some people. I have that turned off. Mine still is consuming over 30w today though.

No news from my support ticket yet. Anyone else manage to test theirs?

Nobody else? Sony are not responding to my support ticket and have now interestingly removed the 'Network Standby' specs from their website. Hmmm... I still have the screenshot though.

Anywho, I'm using the TP-Link Kasa smart plug to power mine off/on with my Amazon Echo Dot 3 in the meantime.

I have this amp. I can just about warm up the room with the Amp on standby. It produces crazy amount of heat so yes I suspect mine also sucks 30W in standby. I have turned off everything I can find on the amp but there must be a setting that eludes me.

 



Try disabling "Network Standby" in the Network settings. This is the setting that makes it jump up 30 watts for me.


Here's what the Sony website says:


 

 

 

Silly question, from the screenshot it states that StandyBy mode is activated after 19 minutes, are you waiting long enough?

Yep. Thanks. I turned mine on (the smart plug, not the receiver) earlier this morning and it's currently chewing 30.3w with the receiver on standby.

it ha to be 30w with the amount of heat coming out. i'm not too worried about the power draw as much as the reduced life span of the thing.

Anyone with the same issue, please consider contacting Sony support. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, etc.

3. Bluetooth mode receiver / Bluetooth standby on; HDMI Standby off; Zone2 power off / HDMI Zone Power off
1.0W in standby / 53.2W at Home screen (1-2 W less in other menus)
NB! There's high pitch whining noise in standby.

4. Bluetooth mode receiver / Bluetooth standby on; HDMI Standby on; Zone2 power off / HDMI Zone Power off
27.1W in standby / 53.2W at Home screen (1-2 W less in other menus)
NB! There's high pitch whining noise in standby.

Wow! Thanks for that. That's high. I'm a bit confused by some of your tests. Did you test "Network Standby" or was it "HDMI Passthrough"?

Edit: sorry, I see you are using the EU version which doesn't have Network Standby. Lenat, if you have an Android phone/tablet, I can PM you a free code to my StrRemote Pro app, which can enable this on your EU receiver. Let me know please.
