I'm having some CEC issues between my 4311 and my Samsung Q90, so cross-posting here in case anyone has any suggestions. I just bought a Panasonic UHD Blu-ray player. Since the 4311 can't handle 4k/HDR, I made sure to buy a player with dual HDMI outputs so I could run the video straight to the TV, and audio to the AVR. But CEC is getting in the way. If I set the TV's input to the Blu-ray player, it automatically sets the AVR's input to to the TV for ARC. If I set the AVR back to the proper audio input for the blu-ray playter, the TV automatically switches to the input from the AVR. It seems IMPOSSIBLE to individually choose an audio source for the AVR and a video source for the TV unless I go in to the settings in the TV and disable Anynet AND go into the settings on the AVR and turn off HDMI control. But if I do that, neither the TV nor the receiver allow me to use ARC to get audio from the TV back to the AVR. The vast majority of our watching is sourced from the TV (broadcast or streaming via the TV), so I need audio returned to the AVR most of the time. I suppose an alternative is to use a separate digital audio connection back to the AVR, though I don't have a spare optical input. Perhaps I could juggle some things, but even if I did that, I'd be giving up higher audio formats from Netflix, etc. Is my only other option going into the set-up menus for both the AVR and TV and disabling CEC every time I want to watch a blu-ray, then going back in and re-enabling it when I'm done?!?
Has anyone else run in to this and have a work-around?
