"
All use the same Broadcom CPU (BCM7325) 32MB FLASH and 256MB DDRRAM. This is the same MIPS processor used in the VU+Solo and Gigablue 800."

Have heard of elderly people with this box looking for help (from retailers) after they accidentally put the box in 'Radio-only' mode and they do not know how to get out of it (A "TV/Radio" button on the remote above button 3 cycles through modes of 'TV Only', 'Radio Only' or 'Show All'.) .
This button can easily be accidentally pressed by people who do not know its purpose, putting the box into radio-only mode and so locking out the TV channels, and it remains in radio-only mode after powercycling the box as well !
The 'TV/radio' print on this button is not easily seen by people who need reading glasses.

If the box is put in radio-only mode it would be more elderly-friendly if the box reverted to 'All' mode after a power-down/powerup (people will usually try powering boxes down and back on before looking for help)
If there is another update to these boxes, maybe this should be addressed?

Its Vestel model name is a TS7100. I personally feel what you suggest is a bad idea - I prefer the software to remember how I set it up before I switched it off. The TV/Radio button simply alters the "Active channels" setting.
