Because the DVD player opens the tray when it is restarted from no power, and that sends an "OPEN" signal to the scaler, which wakes up and sends a signal to the TV.
Why the TV then turns on is a mystery. It seems like a bad design choice, but that's what it does.
"The 141FD has an "Integrator" mode where you could specify that when the TV is powered on, it switches to a certain input. You could set it to change to an unused input. In that case, as an added bonus, the no-signal power off would be activated after only 15 minutes."
That's very helpful--thank you!
Regarding the caution: "ENTERING INTEGRATOR MODE WILL RESET YOUR "PICTURE" SETTINGS TO THE DEFAULT "INTEGRATOR" SETTINGS FOR ALL INPUTS"--is there a way to save my original settings?
If so, then the manual steps for initializing the display would be:
- Turn it on.
- Exit integrator mode.
- Select the desired input.
- Restore the desired settings.
If so, that could be programmed on a remote.
It's simpler than that. First of all, as Turbe mentionned, if you ever use ControlCAL or get your set professionally calibrated, then you don't have to worry about loosing those ISF settings. In the meantime:
A) Setup (you need to this only once):
- If you have changed any "picture" settings, note them down on paper
- Enter Integrator mode
- Select desired input to an unused input
- Exit integrator mode
- Restore "picture" settings
B) Daily use:
- Power on the unit
- Change the input selection.
"Advanced" tip: Until you start using the ISF memories, if you tweak and get "picture" settings you really like, note them down, go into the integrator menu and you can program them in there. Afterwards, if anyone changes the picture settings, you can enter the integrator menu and all the "picture" settings get reset to the values you prefer. (Ref manual p.71: Picture Preset: Use this option to preset the Picture adjustment values for the Home Menu).
And +1 on what Vancouver said, just wait until you get Blu-ray...
