Turning off TV automatically turn off PS4

11 replies 5236 views Edited Nov 18, 2013

When ever I turn off my TV it will automatically turn off the PS4 even when it is on stand by mode.

It will turn off the PS4 even when the HDMI cable is not connected.

This prevents me from downloading anything while not using the PS4 or TV

Go to settings -> System

Uncheck the option that says "Enable HDMI Device Link"

You sir a are GENIUS !  I have a monster Power bar and it was plugged into the green energy saving so everything that is plugged into those outlet will shut off once the TV is turned off.

I would have never thought of switching that.

Thanks a million.

If you want your PS4 to keep downloading when you turn your TV off (with Enable HDMI Device Link turned on) - then first got into your power saving settings and enable internet while in rest mode.

Then in system / automatic downloads and uploads / put a tick in the stuff you want to enable. Personally I turn the whole lot on because I want my PS4 to do all its downloading and updates while I'm not home and my TV is off. That way it's ready to go when I sit down. Less time staring at the download bar.
