MediaLight Bias Lighting

Frequently Asked Questions

Do the lights turn on and off with the TV?

What you are really asking is: “Does the USB port on my TV turn off when the TV us turned off?

The answer is, “It depends.”

Bias lights plugged into a TV will turn on and off with the TV only on models that cut off power to the USB port when the TV is turned off. 

Don't all TVs do this? 

Unfortunately, they don’t.

Some TVs leave the USB port on when the TV is off. Other TVs turn the USB port on and off every 10 seconds when the TV is turned off (Sony Bravia, for example).  

Note: We've posted a partial fix for the Bravia Bug. It only stops the flashing and keeps the USB port on constantly. This, however is enough to run power from the TV while using the MediaLight remote or a smart hub to turn the lights on and off.  

Some generic LED manufacturers claim that their lights, which often lack remote controls or even an on/off switch, turn off automatically with the TV. At best, this is misleading, and at worst, it’s false advertising.

This is why we include an AC adapter and a remote control with our MediaLights for TV.

You can teach the remote control commands to your universal remote or smart hub with IR blaster.

However, if your TV does turn off the power to your USB when the TV is turned off, your MediaLight will lose power and I guess that you could call this "turning off."
