Hi - once again looking to the knowledge of the board. Thanks for past help (esp. Batpig and jdsmoothie.) I've just received my 2310 and I love it. Very flexible and great sound.
My question now relates to integration with TV via HDMI CEC. I have a Samsung LN4A550 (couple of years old) LCD. The goal would be for receiver to come on when TV is switched on (in the right mode) and off again when TV goes off. It'd be nice, though not essential for volume control through TV as well.
I have CEC control on on both the TV (Anynet) and 2310 now. Both the power on and volume control are working. But when the receiver is switched on by the TV, it starts in TV output. I have my cable signal coming in the HDMI3/Cab-Sat input. So I have to manually change the source from TV to Cable to get picture & sound. I thought to re-route the cable signal to the TV output. But when CEC is on, the TV output is restricted from having a HDMI feed. Why, I do not know, but it seems deliberate. I've found others asking similar question, but no definitive answer.
So, I think I can either a) run signal from cable to 2310 via non-HDMI connections (component and optical), or b) figure out how to get Sammy to start the Denon in cable output mode, or c) invest in a Harmony remote to get macros and cable box control?
Is this right? Does anyone know how to do b)?
