I'm having a helluva time with my ST60 & Panny surround sound Blu-Ray player. I called Panasonic, which did not help and I'm hoping someone here has figured out a solution. Right now, if I'm watching TV and decide to turn on the surround sound on the Blu-Ray player (connected via HDMI and ARC, output #2 on my TV), the set-up automatically switched inputs to the Blu-Ray, regardless of whether or not there is a disc in it. It's super annoying that I have to go back and switch the input to "Satellite" to continue watching TV when all I wanted to do was turn on the surround sound. Panasonic said there is no option to turn off the Blu-Ray override when it is turned on. I find this unacceptable. My work-around right now is to sync the power on & off via my ST60 settings so that when I turn on the TV initially, the Blu-Ray will turn on with surround sound. This does work, although a) it takes about 20-30 seconds for the audio to actually turn on b) we don't always want the surround sound on (like, early morning when my roommate wakes up to watch TV and I'm sleeping in the room right above the TV). Has anyone out there come across this problem and if so, found a better solution? Much obliged!
