CEC Power On with ATV


Novice Member
Someone on Reddit suggested that I post here for some advice, so here goes!

I've got an issue with the latest 2nd Gen ATV 4K connected to my TV via HDMI and trying to work out if it's a TV issue or an ATV issue.
Note this is the first time I'm using a TV capable of CEC to control multiple AV devices with one remote.

When I press the Power button on the ATV remote, it fires up the ATV, the TV and the Soundbar no problem, but it also triggers the display of the the TV's native Smart TV home screen. So I have to then fetch the TV's remote and press Exit to get back to the ATV Home screen.

This is obviously not convenient as we're having to juggle 2 remotes just to turn it On to watch something.

Is there a way to disable the Smart TV portion of this TV? It's a Linsar 75" - 75” Ultra HD Smart TV - TVs, Appliances & Accessories | Linsar
