Shutting down an Android Box.

I find it strange the other boxes have no real shut down process, and was wondering if simply cutting the power to them, either by myself or experiencing a blackout, can damage them. 

In the worst instance maybe some damage to a file currently being written to storage (SD card etc), like a photo being copied/saved etc. In most instances the actual OS/app is read only and any dynamic OS/app files will be recreated next boot up.

Ok. Thanks. I've pulled the battery out of android phones but always shut the phone down first. The android OS seems pretty resilient to power failure, which is a good thing because I get some blackouts.

Mine has no power off on the box, but one on the remote which does the proper shutdown process. Sometimes the box freezes though, only thing then is to pull the plug.
