    shut down controller behaviour?

    just got my mpegbox shutdown controller and it doesn't seem to be working right


    soon as i give the unit 12v ( which in a car would be constant ) even if the ignition wire is low it gives power to computer ( should'nt do untill ignition goes high ) on shutting down it works fine - but then if i make ignition high again it doesn't turn back on...


    i realise it needs a complete cycle to start working - but it won't turn back on after 1 cycle ( need to disconnect power and start again )


    is this normal - or am I doing something wrong...
