Signa S1 Turning Off on its own

Recently purchased the Signa S1 sound bar. I have noticed that when using my Apple TV and the screen saver comes on or if I put the Signa S1 on mute, after a period of time the sound bar completely shuts off. Is this normal behavior?

    Welcome to Polk's forum. Yes, the Signa S1 has a feature that places the soundbar in the standby mode when there isn't any incoming signal for about 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Is it possible to turn the standby off or extend the amount of time to standby?

    It gets annoying having to keep Turing the soundbar back on after only a few minutes with the TV paused.

  • I ended up returning mine for this very reason, my $50 creative PC speakers turn on when they sense audio but this $450 Polk soundbar cant?!, esepcially annoying since it resets the audio settings when turned back on
  • Hi, is there any way to increase the duration of this auto shutoff / power saving mode or just turn it off? It shuts off to quickly when watching Netflix or YouTube. It is very annoying to start new videos without sound.

    I also find this auto-shutoff really annoying and am thinking about returning it. It also doesn't seem to remember volume/bass settings when you turn it back on.
