hdmi input default


Standard Member
How do I make my hdmi 1 input my default input on sony tv. I have to use tv input button to put tv on hdmi 1 input so I can watch sky plus. Is there any way that when switching on tv it will automatcally be on hdmi 1 input. I would like to switch on tv using sky remote and sky will be on screen. now I get a black screen until I page down my inputs on tv using sony remote to get hdmi1
thank you.

You're best bet is to get a programmable remote that does macros like a Harmony.
My Panasonic TVs have a "Power-on preference". Do Sony TVs not have an equilavent option in their menus?

In my case, the option lets you choose an input to be automatically selected when you turn the TV on.;)
