CEC Control Issues
I hate to jump into the middle of the white spot discussion but I have a new E701i-A3 and am having some issues getting the CEC working properly. Or maybe it's working properly and I just can't do what I want.
I have a Sony Receiver the tv is hooked up to. The Receiver HDMI out goes to HDMI 1 on the tv. The TV finds the receiver and does control volume and turning the amp and tv on/off together.
My issue is with the source the TV selects on the receiver.
My amp is a HDMI switcher with I think 5 inputs. So, I run a XBOX One(SA/TV Input), XBOX 360 & Blue Ray thru it. I also run a DirecTV HD Box thru the Xbox One.
Problem is, I can have the amp on the SA/TV input when I turn the tv off, then when I turn TV back on - the receiver first turns to TV then to SA/TV and then the volume display comes up on the tv and it goes back to TV. Is there anyway to have it stay on the input it was on?
Or, literally, do I have to use the TV as the HDMI switcher and plug everything in there so that the TV ARC channel is used. Seems like a waste to have an HDMI AV receiver with multiple inputs then. I've spent hours messing with both the TV and the Sony receiver, tried different settings with no luck.
Hopefully this makes sense. Input and advice is appreciated.
