Unhappy HDMI Switch with CEC

I want my TV to recognize the multiple inputs on my HDMI Switch (which is CEC compatible), thereby allowing the Input button on my TV's remote control to be able to flip through the multiple inputs on the HDMI Switch. Notably, I believe it used to work as expected, but after a recent shuffle due to a move, it is no longer allowing flipping through the HDMI Switch's inputs unless the tiny remote that comes with the HDMI Switch is used.

I purchased the following products:

HDMI Switch (with CEC): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...asin_title_s01
HDMI Cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...rch_asin_title

and I have the following TV (Samsung 55" UN55NU6900BXZA): https://www.samsung.com/us/televisio...n55nu6900bxza/

I should also mention that Anynet+ is enabled. I have tried disabling and re-enabling. I have tried unplugging everything and replugging everything back in. I have tried using different HDMI wires. I have tried calling Samsung (they just blamed the HDMI Switch). Nothing has worked. But I knew there was one place that would know, so here I am. (Also @ @joe-ferdinand , if you're listening, would appreciate your thoughts).

^^^^^ CEC incompatibility. Joe Fernand is a great resource so maybe he has some ideas. I don't use or need CEC on my system. A Harmony remote works just fine.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

CEC can be a real pain - it may be worth trying to 'reshuffle' which Source devices are connect to which port on the HDMI Switch, also worth trying to simplify and add sources back in one at a time as one of the Sources could be messing the system up.

Two options we know work (most of the time - always need that caveat!).
