Sony KDL60W630B & Direct tv
I have a new Sony KDL60W630B, and the Direct TV Whole home system with HD DVR. I am planning on buying the Sony HT-CT780 sound bar with sub. I also have a SONY Blue ray player. My question is how to best connect all these components for the best sound and ease of control with Bravia Sync. and the Direct TV remote. I will be using the apps on the TV and also have a Ethernet cord ran to this location. I will be mounting the TV and Soundbar to the wall.
Here is my best guess. DVR and Blue Ray to the sound bar via HDMI. Then the Sound bar
to the TV with the HDMI ( ARC). I know with Bravia sync the Blue Ray, Sound bar and TV will all be interconnected. At this time the Direct TV remote is set to turn on the TV and adjust the volume of the TV. I am going to connect the Ethernet cord directly to the TV
So my main question is...... When I turn on the TV with the Direct TV remote, will it also power up the sound bar and control the volume?. I would think that if the TV and Soundbar are connected by Bravia sync it would. I know to control the Blue Ray and TV apps etc I will need to use the Sony remote.
Thanks in advance.
