It sounds that from start to finish the whole process of getting EPG123 ready for use doesn't take all that long?

I checked the Auto Volume box, and there was no change. :( Do I need to close WMC and re-launch it for the new setting to take effect, or maybe turn the PC off and reboot?

The Samsung model had HDMI-CEC, but I couldn't find anything like that in the settings for the new Sony. Nor is there any mention of HDMI-CEC in the TV's manual.

Thanks very much. Looks like the update did do something unwanted to WMC. But I've never gotten around to using extenders, so maybe the update is safe to install in my case.
