General HDMI Control Issue?


Standard Member
I’m new to HDMI capable components and having a problem with connected devices trying to be a little “too smart”…

Wife was watching a TV program connected via an OTA D/A converter box and I turned on my A/V receiver to listen to some DVD audio thru headphones. A/V box is connected to both the DVD player and TV via HDMI.

Problem was that occasionally (not even sure which actions caused the issue) the TV would auto switch to the DVD HDMI output from the A/V box. Easy enough to “reset” things but clearly an annoyance.

What’s going on here and how do I prevent this?

some devices have HDMI control turn this off if you can but also you can have issues with HDCP and it will need re syncing
