Just bought this system. When it powers up, it goes automatically to a Home page. This page has 9 options, such as Internet Content, FM Radio, Sound, Setup, etc. In order to listen to the input from my Comcast DVR, each time it powers up, I must select EXT In, then HDMI1 (the input for the DVR), and then wait about 5 seconds while it retrieves that inout signal. After 3 hours and 8 different CSA's, Panasonic customer service advises that is the design.
My previous HTIB systems always powered up with whatever input selection it powered down in, needing changing only if I wanted a different input. If I had last watched a DVD, it powered back up in DVD mode; last watched cable tv, it powered back up in cable mode, etc. We are finding these extra steps annoying.
Is this the standard now or has Panasonic gone off in their own world?
