Bluray CDs to soundbar needs TV to be on?


Standard Member
Hi all,
I have a Sony BD player connected via HDMI to a Yamaha YSP2100 soundbar and then via HDMI to a Samsung TV. I want to play music CDs through the BD player and soundbar. I switch on the BD player (which also switches on the TV) and set the relevant input on the soundbar. All works fine except that when I turn off the TV (as I don't need visuals) the BD player turns off too. I'd ike just the BD player and soundbar on.
This sounds like it's very basic so apologies for my ignorance but anyone know what I should do please?
Thanks, Jeff

You need to disable CEC in the BR player in order to stop the automatic switching. However, then then means that you will have to manually select the BR player when you want to watch something. This is how I use my BR players. What’s the model number of the Sony BR machine?
