Secondly, your tv will always switch the AVR back to the TV's sound after the HDMI handshake is done; every time the power is turned on to one of the devices. That is just the way HDMI control functions. It sucks, most of us get around it with a logitech controller.
Hello people. New in this forum.
I have a Yamaha RX V667, Direct TV service and a LG-TV.
Direct TV to AV-Y vía HDMI (currently HDMI-2 but tried with others as well)
AV-Y to LG-TV vía HDMI (HDMI OUT on AV-Y side, HDMI 2 on TV side)
Direct TV Remote Controll configured for LG-TV
I can turn on the TV and synchronously get AV-Y on too.
Here is the problem: the AV is prepared to get sound back from the TV on one of 4 AV sound inputs (AV1, AV2, AV3, AV4). There is no way to avoid this functionality, so the AV-Y changes automatically the Input Mode to the one configured. After this, the sound is lost, cause it should be taken from the Direct TV signal, not the TV.
Then, I have to change the AV input to Direct TV to get sound again. After this, everything works fine.
Is there any way to solve this?
