Just got a reply from LG on The HDMI CEC issue, or simple link, this is what I was afraid of, and how ridiculous this is, do the y not understand if you leave it on in the TV for ARC it constantly tells the player to turn on and switch to that input on your receiver?
Or if you turn it off you can't use ARC? They seriously need to rethink this....
Thank you for contacting LG Email Services and for getting back to us.
We appreciate you contacting us regarding your LG UBK90 player. It is a pleasure to assist you again.
In response to this, please be advised that upon checking the manual of the player attached with this message, the option to turn off the SIMPLINK feature is unavailable with the unit. This is turned on when the SIMPLINK setting on the TV is turned on and if the unit is connected with the TV through an HDMI cable with CEC. The unit automatically recognizes the signal coming form the TV for the SIMPLINK feature once it is turned on and this allows the remote control of the said TV to control the basic functions of the player.
To deactivate the SIMPLINK option on the player, the feature has to be turned off from the source device which is the TV.
Thank you for your kind understanding.
