Just to put this into context, I plugged the Vero into my digital power meter today, and once boot-up had settled down, with the Kodi home screen showing on my TV, the Vero was drawing a mighty 2.7W. Based on my electricity tariff per kWh, that works out at around 32p/month for non-stop stand-by use. During playback, power draw was in the region of 3 - 4 W (my blu ray player would be much more). On powering down the Vero, power consumption dropped to 1.3W. So regular use of a suspend mode could indeed save me some money, but it’s going to take a while to save up for those new speakers
If the suspend mode helps keep my AVR in stand-by that will save me a few more pennies, every little helps.
Also, can I put in a plug for retaining network connectivity in suspend mode - my Vero remote has never been out of its wrapper, as I mainly use the Kodi app on my iPad.
