Sony amp/receiver changes input setting when power is shut off

I have a Sony STR-DH720 running my home theater. I have a new Samsung 65" UN65H7150 TV and I have a Direct TV mini-client box connected to the receiver by an HDMI cable in the SAT/CATV input. Then an HDMI cable from the receiver out to the HDMI 1 in on the tv. When I shut the system down with the Genie remote, it shuts the tv, amp/receiver, and tv off. When I turn the system back on, all 3 power on but the receiver changes from SAT/CATV to the TV setting which gives me picture but no sound. I have to physically change the amp/receiver from TV to SAT/CATV to have sound. How do I resolve this issue?

I have the exact same problem. I didn't find a solution. It all started when I pushed on my Samsung remote tools and choosed anynet+..

I also have a logitech harmony one and it does the same.

Turn off any CEC settings on your Sony receiver and TV. CEC is consumer electronics control, which operates over HDMI

Looks like the TV and receiver are sensing each other so the receiver is changing to the TV input.

If you want your Genie remote to turn off everything then you cant disable this function and your stuck with this problem.

Otherwise get a Harmony remote and turn off CEC functions.

Disable any type of HDMI control on your TV and receiver. Manufacturers like to give their implementations different names like VieraLink, AnyNet, SimpleLink, etc. Check you manual for whatever it's called on your product. This feature allows the components to communicate and change inputs as what they think it should be. Sometimes they don't get it right. It only works well on paper.

Edit: Looks like afrogt beat me to it by a few minutes due to my hunt and peck typing style.

I have posted this point many times...
The Samsung display is not HDMI certified, and has not passed the pertinent component interoperability testing. Samsung does this to save $ and shorten their time to market. Additionally they have chosen to revise some of the CEC software, and for some odd reason certain functions are only possible with other Samsung components. These issues frequently arise when using an AVR that utilize an HDMI repeater. Samsung should have stuck with the HDMI CEC standards as the majority of Japanese display brands have done...

If possible return the Samsung display and exchange it for another brand...

Just my $0.02...

possible solution

Nobody will probably read this post since it is approx. 6 months after the last post, but I am purchasing this receiver now in lieu of a sony sound bar I have been using. After reading the posts on this thread I am going to hook all hdmi components to my Samsung tv and use the ARC hdmi out on the tv to send all signals to the amp. Once I receive the amp and have it connected I will post an update. *** 1. What is unknown to me, however, is if I need to have the components connected to the amp in order to utilize all of the amps audio codecs. 2. If using the non-certified hdmi Samsung connections will impact quality. If either of these 2 problems exist, then I would follow afrogt's suggestion and buy the Harmony remote*** Unfortunately, I will only be able to post if this works regarding sat/tv switching issue since this is my wife's main listening location. Certainly glad I have a separate theatre room for myself.

No need to turn HDMI control off. Had the same problem with my Samsung/Onkyo setup. The solution was to reassign the HDMI for SAT to TV and problem was fixed.

Samsung UN65ES6500
Onkyo TX-NR809
Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S590
Boston Acoustic VR 30 Fronts
Boston Acoustic VR 20 Surrounds
Boston Acoustic VR10 Center
Energy ESW-310 Subwoofer
