LG CX - not powering on STR-DN1080 over eARC?


Standard Member
Hey folks, loving my new LG CX 77", but have one minor niggle - my connected AV receiver, the STR-DN1080 will not power on when I turn the TV on. It's connected via eARC, and every other function works when I use the LG remote (volume control, home button, options, powering off), but I can't figure out how to get it to power on when the TV is turned on? Is there a procedure I should go through when setting up the AV receiver to the LG CX?

Btw, if anyone has a link to a comprehensive manual for the CX, I'd love it! It took me 2 days and the help of a fantastic AVforums member before I could get the audio working propertly with my HTPC as I couldn't find instructions. And I'm a google search pro...

Is "Control for HDMI" turned on on your AVR? On your Tv turn on Simplink and configure Auto Power Sync for your AVR.
