    Yesterday when trying to sleep I got a shock when my Vugo device suddenly turned on when the power came back on during a bad power outage and it remained on for a few minutes then when the power kept flashing on and off the Vugo kept turning on and the TV did too.And the only thing that stopped this trouble was I had Mom disconnect the Vugo and the TV for a few hours and that seemed to work. Do any of you encounter this with your DVR on your TV?,

    DirecTV boxes do that, too. Even if they weren't on when power was lost, they turn on when power is restored.

    Oh so the trouble I had with my Vugo device is normal after all during a power outage. Thank you for your advice,
