    I seek confirmation that my set-up is working properly.

    I have a Panasonic VT30 & SC-BTT775EBK Blu-Ray home theatre connected via ARC with SKY+HD and Xbox 360.

    SC-BTT775EBK has two HDMI inputs:

    1. Sky+HD (HDMI 1)
    2. Xbox 360 (HDMI 2)
    SC-BTT775EBK HAS ONE HDMI output:

    1. HDMI - HDMI 2 on VT30
    The good news is that everything works and I am happy. :)



    My only concern is that if I'm watching Freesat and turn on the Sky box the TV input doesn't automatically switch to Sky. Instead (using blu-ray remote) I browse to the home menu on SC-BTT775EBK and select HDMI 1 and then (using tv remote) I change TV input to HDMI 2.


    This seems a bit fiddly to me and not only that the wife keeps phoning me cos she doesn't quite grasp it! :confused:


    I was sort of expecting the TV to automatically switch to SKy input the moment the Sky box is switched on. Is this not the case? :rolleyes:


    Also, it's all Viera linked so surely I could be using one remote!!


    Any help much appreciated.

    Almost a week since I posted the above and I still haven't found an answer.

    I thought I would 'bump' it!

    To confirm, basically the issue is that I have to use two remotes to switch input, from say Sky to Xbox. All devices are connected via HDMi (ARC).

    Devices are Viera linked so should I just be using one remote?

    Cheers!!
