I have the same Sony tv along with two other Sony TVs all with Harmony Elite remotes and they all do the same thing...well except for the bedroom tv as it is not connected to a sound system.
That’s always bothered me also the way it boots up. Like you said it does ultimately end up going to the correct input and external speakers but it’s weird how it changes things around.
I’m thinking it has something to do with the ARC having to be on and the tv runs through a bunch changes to get to where it needs to be.
I haven’t tried turning off ARC and HDMI-CEC and running a optical cable for sound for the smart tv features.
If you give that a try and let me know how it works I’d probably go that route also but I do. It feel like testing my tv as it’s a 75” and not fun to try to change things by yourself.
