I'm starting to really hate this TV because of the all HDMI-related issues I have with it. I replaced JS9500 (Samsung 4K tv from 4-5 years ago), with all other devices being the same, so it's the TV that's causing all the issues. One issue is driving me mad - maybe someone knows how to fix it. The TV does not turn on the receiver (Denon) when the TV is turned on.
Basically, when I turn the TV on, the receiver does not turn on and the internal sound is selected as sound output. If I go to sound menu and select the receiver as sound output there, it turns on, so the TV can turn it on just fine, but does not. When I turn off the TV, it turns off the receiver to. When I turn it back on, the receiver does not turn on and the internal speakers are selected as sound output with the receiver being available to select. Select the receiver, and it turns on just fine again. Also, if I turn on the receiver via its remote, the TV switches to receiver too.
The same receiver worked as expected with the older Samsung TV - it would turn on and off with the TV as long as it was selected as the sound output.
How can I fix it?
What I have tired so far:
1. using every HDMI port on the TV for th receiver - same
2. Changing pass-through setting on the receiver - no effect
3. Configuring "unified remote" on the TV to control receiver - no effect
4. Resetting the TV to factory settings - no effect.
I would gouge the internal speakers with a rusty screwdriver if I knew this would help prevent TV from switching to them all the time... Please help.
