White light on Ultra LT goes on and off with TV

Just purchased and set up an Ultra LT. Can anyone explain what the white light on the front represents? I am cabled up VIA an HDMI port. Every time I turn on my LG TV (regardless of what remote I use) The white light comes on. When I power off the TV (regardless of the remote) the light goes out. Just wondering if it means "Power On" because everything I read says the units is ALWAYS powered on.


Thanks for any help.

Re: White light on Ultra LT goes on and off with TV

It's hard to say what it means anymore.  Roku totally screwed it up with the 10.5 update.  It used to be on normally and off when the screensaver activates.  Mine now will go off and never come on again.  There's a new "power saving" option under Settings->System->Power that also has something to do with the light, but as far as I can tell the light has become meaningless.
