    Hi. Has anyone had this problem with their T8 S. When ever I use the shut down option in the device menu or use. the power button on my VIP remote the box shuts down then just reboots itself.
    The only way I can get it to completely shut down is to press the power button on the box itself.

    Any insight wouls be appreciated.

    sometimes get this problem on all boxes (t8 mini/t8s plus). hitting the button twice sometimes forces the shutdown to complete

    btw where is the shut down button in the device menu? or do you mean in kodi?

    I mean the power button in the device menu. Its as if the power off command is now a reboot command.

    I am not aware of any device menu. sorry. I have a t8s plus like you. there are power off keys in librelec and android kodi but i am not aware of any "device menu". Can you tell me where it is please?

    Perhaps device menu is a little misleading. In mine it's in the form of a pre installed app called Reboot and in it it has options like reboot, soft reboot, recovery and power off.

    Ah ok. Understood. I have never used that. Perhaps Droidbox can comment on why that "power off" function doesn't work.

    Some processors/systems don't respond to the shut down command, and just reboot. In these cases, the reboot app is still useful for rebooting/going to Android's Recovery menu without needing to hold down the recessed switch on the side.
