Non-Smart TV
Pi powered off TV USB socket

I tried this for an experiment. Pi was powered down when TV went into standby )-:


Why would you need it powered if the TV is not in use?

I was more interested in having one powered up but out of the way - so I'd gone to the effort of getting a VESA mount and putting it behind the TV (Monitor) the TV was a portable 17" one that I'm using as my Pi Monitor - I wanted to be able to ssh into the Pi even when not using the screen/keyboard.

I also didn't like the Pi simply having the plug pulled - although I do it a lot myself with minimal side-effects, it's best to be expecting it!
