Re: Android Box turns "ON' by itself.
I don't have an android TV box (but I am jealous), but I do have Android based phone and tablet, and I have seen these devices turn on when I plug them in to charge - this specific behaivour that I have observed makes me wonder if there is some sort of short in the plug/charger and the power, and when you guys described your devices turning themselves on, makes me kind of wonder if the fact that the power plug is always connected that maybe it is triggering a hardware malfunction/short somewhere, somehow similar to what mine does ... just a guess.
Btw, I do have a "smart box" plugged in to my old fashioned tv that turns it in to a smart tv, along with the LAN connection, I get Youtube, Netflix and a bunch of other apps, and I thoroughly enjoy it (just as an fyi, NeoTV), but the one thing that it doesn't have, I can't just install from an app store (I would have to wait for a firmware upgrade, if ever) is Amazon's streaming tv/video service. Oh well, hopefully I either get an actual smart tv with my next purchase, or I will look for a better device, but other than not having Amazon streaming service/app I am happy with NeoTV (which I ironically ordered from amazon.com :-)
