TV: Panasonic TC-P54S1
AVR: Denon AVR-790

Remote- XSight ARRX18G
Cable: SA 8300HD
Everything HDMI into AVR, single HDMI out to TV
Remote with RF extender in closet
Following the clunky software, I've set it up both ways, meaning the Auto program by answering a few questions, and the IR sequence that I created. In each, it seems that the TV comes on, the AVR powers up, the cable image flashes on the TV, then there is a delay which results in the correct cable image being shown (though there is some handshake issue as I have to hit A to get rid of the "Not allowed" screen), but the Denon doesn't pick up the sound. Rather it passes it through to the TV.
In order to have the Denon pick up the sound, I have to turn it off, and simply turn it back on. Not a problem, just a pain in the ass.
What am I doing wrong? Is it the delays, programming order of things? Any suggestions?
The other issue/question-
How many of you are using the "Hello"/"Good Night" macro. I find the GN useful, but haven't bothered with the Hello, simply b/c I want the "Watch Cable" or "Watch BluRay" to substitute directly.
Thanks in advance for the replies/suggestions. These forums have been invaluable in researching and selecting the components that comprise my little HT.
