Hi, I recently purchased an HT-RC360 to replace an aging receiver.
Hooked up to the old receiver was a Sima VS-560 switchbox that had a wonderful feature that it would automatically switch to the newest video input it detected, so if the cable was the only thing on, that would be the video input, but then if I then turned on my XBox360, it would detect that and automatically switch to that video input, when the XBox360 is switched off, it would go back to the previous input, it is a wonderful feature and left me never needing to use the remote to switch to different inputs.
Unfortunately that switchbox just died (plus it didn't support HDMI 1.4), so I hooked everything up to my new HT-RC360 and am finding it tedious to use the remote to switch between inputs (yes, this feature made me remote control lazy).
I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything in the manual and that the HT-RC360 receiver doesn't have this feature, and if not, does anyone know of another HDMI 1.4 receiver that does?
Here is the description of the feature in the VS-560 manual (doesn't look like they are selling this switcher any more)
Auto Input Mode
If the Auto Input mode is on, as a new input becomes active, the VS-560 will automatically change to the new input. If you want to go to another A/V source, select the input using the front panel button or the remote. If you don’t want the VS-560 to automatically select an active input, turn the Auto Input mode off.
Please note when you activate Auto Input mode, it scans the inputs when the VS-560 is on or in the stand-by mode. A new input becoming active will cause the unit to wake from standby, and select the new input.
