Turning off Bravia Sync/ARC
so, i plead ignorance, but i'm confused with how Bravia Sync and ARC work. from what i would have understood, i have them all turned off, yet i don't believe they are behaving as i would think they should with everything turned off.
my setup/configuration for the 900e:
Apple TV 4k -> HDMI2
Emotiva Processor (fed by Oppo BR player) --> HDMI3
Tivo Roamio -> HDMI4
Also, Optical output of TV goes back to the Emotiva (so i can get 5.1 sound for Tivo and ATV programming through our Audio system)
here's what i'm surprised by:
1. if i tell the Apple TV to sleep now, EVERYTHING shuts itself off (the Emotiva, the TV, and the apple TV)
2. my Apple TV refuses to sleep unless i force it to do it. somehow, even with the TV powered off (and Emotiva and Oppo off too), the ATV never sleeps regardless of whether i set the sleep to 15min, 30 min, 1 hr.
i am guessing that somehow, in spite of my best efforts, ARC/Bravia Sync is now fully off.
can anyone help out here? i would love to disable all of these things because i think they are the root of many problems i am having with the setup including the ATV getting into a weird state of not knowing whether to connect itself to the TV or not (seems common for Sony TVs and ATVs) and also behavior of the TV switching to HDMI3 when i reboot the ATV4k (i would love for it to stay on the source selected even if nothing is there)
Life seemed so much simpler with my Dumb TV Bravia (circa 2008) where i had none of these sorts of issues and my carefully crafted Macros on my URC MX-500 "just worked."
