Receiver with Specific HDMI-CEC Function

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Good day,

My old TX-SR706 had this very convenient feature that I hope to find in a new receiver: When I had my Samsung LN55A950 connected to it, the receiver would automatically come on with the TV and turn off when I shut off the TV.

I am looking for something in the $500-$600 range with 3D, 7.1 or better, 100watts per channel with ethernet optional

Basically want to know if the Pioneer 1020/1120, Onkyo 808 (without network issues), Denon 891, maybe Yamaha RX-V667 will do what I want.

Thanks,

As far as Denon goes, every model except the lowest level 391 offers the HDMI-CEC feature.

Thanks, but i'm looking for that specific feature (power on and power off) and I know the Denon 791 didn't have it.

The HDMI-CEC feature (to include ON/OFF) is offered with every Denon as I listed above.

We'll agree to disagree but as I stated, I owned a 791 (sold it because it didn't do this task) which would turn off with the TV but not on.

All the settings I could change between the TV and receiver would not change turn the receiver on with the set.

Believe me, I have no reason to make this up as I was happy with the sound quality of the 791 and it only cost me $200.

Did you check the Denon remote itself as to whether it had a pre-set code for the Sammy? Otherwise, if that was the only feature not working correctly, a Harmony remote would have been much more economical. Although as it's already sold, moot point.

Thanks again. That was the only (most important) feature that didn't work.

A Harmony was not even considered as I use a SMK Link Blu-link remote since it controls my PS3 as well. It was a receiver-specific issue the 791 had since my old 706 did what I want AND my current 708 does it also.

I need a receiver that will do what I need without changing the remote itself.

Anyone with the above mentioned receivers can help me out?

No one?

I have a Denon 591 w/ HDMI-CEC enabled. I also have found that it will only power down using the CEC feature -- I need to power it up separately. Is there a way to get it to power up via CEC (as described above) - or is it necessary to use a remote that can do macros (like a Harmony)?

I don't know if the manufacturers are just incapable of building equipment compatible with other brands, or if they do it on purpose to try to lock you into their brand, but the many flavors of CEC are pretty much only guaranteed to work if you stick with a single brand for all your components.

My recommendation is to simply use a good, programmable universal remote.

As did the 791 even though it has HDMI-CEC.

I beg to differ on that statement. As you may, or may not, have seen the Onkyo I owned AND own are capable of doing what I want with my Samsung TV and my Sony PS3.

I do believe as you do that manufacturers are sometimes incapable of creating products that will work with everything. Next to impossible to find a nice 60-inch Denon TV to go with a Denon receiver, though.

For every combination that works, there's a dozen or more that don't. I didn't say it couldn't work, only that you have no guarantee that the various HDMI-control protocols will work with other specific components, especially if you cross brands. Hence the problem you're having finding another one that will work.

I see.

Anyone know if the Pioneer 1120 or the Yamaha can do what I need?

I am also interested in knowing if anyone has got the pioneer 1120 and a sony bravia to "sync"?

move your lazy ass across the room and turn the power on with your hand.

I hope you do not own a remote control - since you should "move your lazy ass across the room and change the channels with you hand"...
