Can anyone help me sort SC version 5 and power off for new Samsung TV? I just replaced an older Sony TV with a 2019 Samsung Q7DR.
Everything is working well except for the SC Power Off Activity. After a successful power off routine from Simple Control, everything turns off, including the TV, but two seconds later the TV powers back on and TV immediately displays live content from the last used source (like Apple TV 4K or Xfinity X1) and the audio changes over to the TV's internal speakers.
I'm new to ARC and I think ARC feedback is causing the Samsung TV to immediately power on again after shut down. I have enabled ARC because I want higher quality audio from the Samsung TV's built-in apps than Optical audio provides.
Key: when ARC is enabled on Yamaha TSR-7850, you cannot set power off pass through to OFF. You can only choose Auto.
My Activities are Watch Apple TV, Watch Xfinity TV, Watch Blu-Ray, Watch FireTV, Watch Samsung TV. I am using up to date firmware on Samsung, Yamaha, ATV, etc.
Right now I have one single Power Off Activity in Simple Control. Maybe I need to have specific power off routines for each Activity, telling each appropriate source to Sleep or Power Off, so that no signal flows at Yamaha power off pass through. Yet I don't see a Sleep command for Apple TV 4K Device.
Any tips for wrangling this maze? Thanks.
