Gidday all, I'm having an issue with a clients new VSX1122 around CEC control and wondered if anyone has any ideas?
The set up is the 1122 connected to a Samsung PS60E551(brand new). Source equipment is a Pioneer BDP150 bluray, Pace "MySky"
HD Sat PVR and a Windows media centre PC - this is connected via dvi out from the media centre so, CEC is not applicable.
All interconnects are HDMI v1.4, hi speed with ethernet and ARC.
The first thing I noticed is that with HDMI control set to on, I can still assign and rename the HDMI inputs...normally, not possible.
Following the "synchronized amp" set-up as detailed in the manual (which has worked perfectly on other models previously) CEC control does not function at all.
Forgetting the PVR (and obviously, the media centre PC), with the synchronized amp mode enabled I should be able to adjust the receivers volume using the vol control on the TV, when I turn the TV power off the amp should shut down and from a cold start if, I turn the BDP on that should, turn on the receiver, select BD as an input and turn on the TV.
On the tools menu of the Samsung TV one can select "Anynet CEC" and CEC devices are listed - in this case, the receiver and bluray should be there. They're not. The receiver won't even interact with the bluray let alone, the tv.
CEC is definitely set to on, on the tv and bluray etc.
The firmware version is the latest available, I've confirmed the connections several times.
As an aside, "standby through" is set to on, HDMI2 (cable/sat) however, only the pic appears there is no sound.
This should come through the TV speakers albeit, in the sound menu of the TV "external speaker" is selected.
Finally, ARC is set to on but, there is no sound from the tv's HD tuner back to the amp.
Apologies, this has ended up being several issues cunningly interweaved as one, anyone with any thoughts or similar experience, I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
