If you can't get it to work, try a Fire TV or stick for Amazon. But it also uses CEC and is always on like Roku.
Speaking of which, I have a strange thing going on here I'd like to figure out.
Yamaha receiver, with sources Amazon Fire, TiVo, and Panasonic Blu-Ray. The Fire is very recent, replacing a Roku 3 that died (just to keep things kind of vaguely relevant to the thread).
I normally just use a universal remote to switch inputs on the Yamaha, but yesterday while watching the TiVo I picked up the Fire remote and absentmindedly hit the middle (Enter) button, and the Yamaha switched its input to it, surprising the heck out of me. AFAIK
, the Fire has the Home screen up all the time, so I don't understand what happened there - I don't think it suddenly came to life.
What I would really like is if I could have this behavior be universal, so that if I pick up the TiVo remote and, say, call up the Info screen or guide, the Yamaha would switch back to it. Or if I turn on the Blu-Ray player, the Yamaha switches to it, etc. But only the Fire seems to exhibit this behavior with the Yamaha. Is that because the other components don't support CEC?
