My dad is having (had it for awhile) a problem with his 1020k and will now be an issue when trying to use his new Harmony. He's had this issue since he got it years ago. The cable box is on and plugged into the receiver via HDMI. If he turns on the power to the TV and then to the receiver, the TV starts it's power on and the receiver turns on. The receiver then turns off before the TV is able to output any video. Turning the receiver back on will then work fine.
The same thing happens if I try to watch the HTPC. The HTPC is already on and connected to HDMI 5. Turn the TV on, receiver on, switch inputs if needed, receiver turns off, then TV finishes booting up.
If I turn on receiver first and let it finish powering up, even start receiving the audio from the cable box, then turn the TV on, the receiver still shuts off. After turning it back on, everything works fine.
Any idea what is going on? Need more info from me? This is preventing setting up the Harmony because it's obviously trying to turn everything on at once.
edit: haha funny how small things don't take a priority until they're more of a problem. I just found the Control via HDMI setting in the receiver settings and turned it off since I don't think it's used and it fixed the problem. 30 minutes of work for a years old problem.
