I have a Tivo S3 connected to an Anthem MRX 500 receiver which is connected to a Samsung HP-T5064 plasma TV, all via HDMI. It was my understanding that when I turn the TV off, the sound out of the receiver should mute, even if I don't turn off the receiver (or switch input). The Tivo of course can never turn off or go into standby.

A funny thing happens when I turn off my TV (and nothing else). The audio out of the receiver does mute like I would expect. Then about 5-6 seconds later, the audio starts up again. Is this a problem with the TV or the receiver? Or is it just some setting in the receiver? Or was my original understanding incorrect to begin with? Please help.

Why would you expect the receiver to mute if you turn off the TV but leave the receiver on? That doesn't even make sense to me.

Why don't you just turn the receiver off if you want no sound to come out of it?

Yes, it didn't make sense to me when I first read it somewhere. So was that completely incorrect?

And if so, why does my receiver mute for a few seconds when I turn the TV off?

The HDMI handshake (ie. chain) is broken and must be reinitiated.

Exactly so. HDCP must re-authenticate when you power the TV on or off.

I'm sorry but I don't think I understand what that means. So basically there is no solution but powering off the AVR along with my TV?

Exactly. There's no reason for the AVR to mute just because the TV is turned OFF as the audio is coming from the AVR not the TV.
