This is very strange. Couple of times I powered on my 889, it stayed at DVD and then a few seconds later switched itself to TV/CBL; most other times when I turn it on it immediately goes to TV/CBL.
Did anyone find out why it is doing this? I'm wondering if it has anything to do with HDMI-CEC. Didn't get a chance to mess with those settings yet.
Problem solved. It is caused by HDMI-CEC. When I switch input on my TV to the TV tuner, the receiver is changed to TV/CBL. According to the manual, the 889's volume can be controlled by the TV, that I haven't seen work. Oh well I'll leave HDMI-CEC off.
