I have ARC and lip sync disabled.
Does it do this also when you turn the TV on first and allow it to "talk" to the 609? I have not had this issue. For instance, if the last thing I watched was xfinity cable, then, when I turn my TV on the next morning, the 609 clicks on with the TV and is at the cable input, just like it was before turning it off.
Now I just checked again to make sure. I turned on the 609 first and made sure it was on the cable input. Then, I turned on the TV and the 609 did not switch over.
It only jumps to the "TV" input if I do something with the TV to make it switch, like activating Netflix, DLNA player, or SD card input on the TV.
If the 609 is on "Cable" and I turn on the BD player, it will switch automatically to that input.
This leads me to believe it may be a communication issue with your devices and not anything inherently wrong with your 609.
Now I do have an issue with the R590 receiver (from the HT-S5400 package) in the bedroom where if I run a macro on my Harmony to go to standard cable running through my Philips DVR via component hookup, the Onkyo will switch back to TV and I'll have to reset it to the proper input manually. But that may not have anything to do with your setup, it may be that it doesn't communicate properly when a non-HDMI source is used (and of course, the R590 lacks upconversion)...
