I'm having a problem with Anynet+. I've read about similar problems on this forum and others, and often the advice is to turn off Anynet+. I'd love to do that, but can't find a way to do it in my PN58C550's menus! Is it hidden somewhere in the user menus, or do I have to go into service mode to turn it off?
Here's a little background on the problem:
We have two TVs, a Pioneer 42" Kuro and the Samsung 58". The Kuro has a full-feature Dish DVR attached, while the Sammy only has a bare-bones Dish HD receiver. Sometimes we want to watch recordings on the big TV, so I installed a powered splitter so the DVR signal can be shared by both TVs (input = DVR, output 1 = Kuro, output 2 = Sammy.) This works great, and I can even put the DVR into single mode so I can control it with the TV2 UHF remote.
The fly in the ointment is that when I turn off the Sammy, the Kuro goes off, too! It didn't take long to isolate the cause to the HDMI splitter/cabling: if I unplug the splitter output from the Sammy, the problem disappears. I tried disabling the HDMI power control features in the Kuro, but (oddly), that seems to have no effect.
My understanding is that the power off signal from the Sammy is an Anynet+ feature. I have programmable remotes for both TVs, so I don't think I need Anynet+ at all. But I can't figure out how to turn it off. Can anyone tell me?
