My current setup is the Samsung UN55D8000, with cable box, ps3, xbox 360, & apple tv all plugged into the receiver via HDMI. I had previously used the workaround and assigned the cable box to TV/CD input on the receiver so it would default to that powering on.
But now more recently since HBO Go is now on the Samsung SmartHub, I’ve been using that & it screws everything up because I had to use an optical audio cable to plug the TV’s audio (from HBO GO) into the RC360.
I am going to be picking up a Harmony One remote within the next couple weeks. Once I get that I guess I’ll just turn off Anynet since I can still just control everything with the Harmony.
Not that any of this matters because on April 1 HBO Go is going to be on the Xbox and I can then ditch my optical cable setup and just use the Xbox through HDMI to use HBO Go.
So, sorry for wasting everyone's time with this pointless post.
EDIT: But I guess it's still worth asking if there's a way to set the default input on powering on the RC360 when you're not using ARC. I couldn't find any options in the settings nor any info in the manual. With Anynet turned off (and RIHD off on the Onkyo), does it just use the last input when powering on?
