I switched my settings on my pioneer sc-1522-k to hdmi-sec as well as my oppo blue ray and dishnetwork hopper, and my Sharp Aquous but it doesn't seems to work. If I power up my blue ray nothing else comes on ? I will like to control either the tv with the receiver or vice versa and or power the blue ray to turn on the receiver and tv.
I'm using a univeral remote which I haven't programmed yet. But my blue ray set to hdmi-cec if I turn it on it should set my sc1522 to the correct input since I have the receiver also to hdmi cec. the same goes for the hopper if I turn on the hopper it should send the signal to the receiver to the assigned input.
HDMI-CEC has many different set of functionalities: Auto power on/off, Auto input switch, PLQS and ARC. On Pioneer, you need to make sure HDMI control is ON and Control Mode is ON in order to do what you want. There is also settings for turning on/off ARC and PLQS.
TVs can similar settings. For example, my Panasonic allows me to control auto power on/off and input switch separately.
I have all the settings set on the Sharp. But I should be able to turn on the blueray and then the recevier and/or tv come on, correct. This is with all the devices having hdmi-sec, which they do and I have them turned on.
Only on the TV is not enough. Like I said, make sure your Pioneer receiver has those two settings turned on. Do the same on your BD player. All devices must be configured to do the same thing before it can happen. HDMI CEC is a very vague category. It can mean many different things.
