  • What is "AUTOMATIC SHUTDOWN" fucntion?
  • Why my Z8, Zalpha shows a message "System shutdown initiated" and shuts down automatically?

Here you have ANSWER for those questions. and actually TV screen before shutting down shows following clue. 

Reason: Returning to last known power state before AC power loss.

Newly manufactured Formuler devices such as Z8 and Zalpha remember last known state when it is turned off.

This is

  • To remember the setting when users are recording a program even when they are not available.
  • To return the receiver back to last known state when recovering from short power outage/Blackout. 


Z8 will automatically start, and turn off based on its last known state even after user's intentional Z8’s AC power off(Plug out) ๐Ÿ‘‰ and on(Plug in). 

๐ŸšจRecommended behavior

  • After turning off the device using remote control, do not unplug or turn off its AC power.
  • If you must unplug or turn off Z8’s AC power, press BACK or OK button when you see that message.
  • You can still turn the device back on even later! Use remote control, just press STB power button to turn it back on.
