I've got an old plasma monitor that was used as sort of a digital signage, but now I'm repurposing it as an HDTV. The problem is, there's no IR port for remote control, and the only way to turn it on/off is by literally plugging it in. The panel used to go to sleep and wake up via the proprietary box (which had a remote) that would push content to it, and all that had was an HDMI cable, so I assume it sent a CEC signal to the display letting it know to wake up (or sleep)

My current receiver (TX-NR708) doesn't seem to support turning the TV on/off via CEC from the receiver, just turning the receiver on/off via CEC from the TV. Are there any brands of receivers out there that support both directions?

I believe that the Yamaha may do it (ie TV or Receiver turns the other on)

Strong or weak in the end we are all dead

i wouldn't "assume" anything... it's entirely possible that it "wakes on input"...

what's the make/model of the monitor?

cec, by definition, is bi-directional..

Sadly it doesn't go to sleep when there's no HDMI signal, or the cable is unplugged

It's completely brandless. I'll have to open the back panel when I get a chance to see if there's any panel information

But my current receiver doesn't seem to support both directions. When I have it hooked up to a normal Sony KDL-40EX720, the receiver turns on when I use the HDTV remote to turn on the TV, but if I use the receiver remote to turn on the receiver, the HDTV stays doesn't turn on
