Samsung TV & STR-DH820 AV Receiver


Standard Member
I have a Sony STR-DH820 AV Receiver connected to my Samsung TV (UE40D6500) and I can get some HDMI control but not everything. Whenever I switch the TV on and the last input was an HDMI (i.e. my HTPC) after a few seconds the AV Receiver will switch on automatically - no problems here. And when I switch the TV off it knows to switch the amp off as well (interestingly if I use the 4th HDMI on the back of the amp this does not work!)

My problem is whenever I am just using the TV - so if I switch on the TV and I have had the AMP set to TV mode it does not switch the amp on and I have to go and manually switch it on. Very frustrating! If I then switch the TV off it knows to switch the amp off. Any suggestions on why it would not switch on the amp?

The active standby does not seem to work either - anyone had any experience of this on a Samsung TV setup?
