Is there a setting I'm missing or its suppose to connect automatically? when I try to setup universal control I try to select game console and it wouldn't even setup or anything.
It just worked out of the box for me.
I think ARC only works if Simplink is on, so I had that on since I use ARC for my cable box and the TV apps. I turned CEC On, on the PS4 Pro. I'm able to control the PS4 Pro with the Magic Remote, including XMB navigation, as well as controlling Blu-ray playback.
Unfortunately it works a little too well, so I ended up turning HDMI-CEC off on the PS4 Pro. If I powered on my PS4 Pro, the TV would switch to HDMI 2 and my Denon 720w receiver would switch to the PS4 Pro HDMI. Or, if I just switched my E6 to HDMI 2, the PS4 would power on, and the Denon would switch to the right HDMI. I have the Samsung K8500 UHD player hooked up to the Denon as well, so when I use my Harmony to do the Watch Movie activity, which turns on the K8500, switches to HDMI 2 on the E6, and the right HDMI on the Denon. The problem is that when all the happens, the PS4 Pro still comes on, just because the E6 is turned to HDMI 2, and then the Denon picks up that the PS4 Pro is on, and switches from the K8500 HDMI to the PS4 Pro HDMI. It also works in reverse if I turn on the PS4 Pro, the K8500 would come on.
So for me, I didn't have to do any fiddling to get it to work in terms of controlling the PS4 Pro with the Magic Remote. Like I said though, for me it works a little too well, and I couldn't figure out how to make all the components come on ONLY when I want them to.
