Hmm. I checked the spec of our TV. It lists 0.5w in standby as you suggested. So plugged TV into TP!ink energy monitoring socket and switched the socket on, putting the TV into standby. Checked the TPlink app and sure enough it was reading 0.51w. So why did I think it was higher than this, I ask myself. Switched TV on and consumption was between 98 and 130w depending on what was being displayed. Put it back into standby expecting it to go to 0.5w and hence confirm I’d lost the plot. But it didn’t - it went to 46w and stayed there for about 15 minutes till the TV made a quiet click sound and then it dropped back to 0.5w. So my erroneous observation was based on checking consumption immediately after putting into standby!Are you sure about that?
Our TV uses 0.2 Watts in standby
We have a remote socket adaptor, it uses 0.8 Watts in standby
Smart sockets are great for big loads, but TV? no point.
And to make matters worse, our older TPlink HS100 smart plugs actually use 1.5w!!!
