Soundbar goes off with TV remote but not on


Novice Member
I have a Hitachi 58HK6100UC TV and a Panasonic SC-HTB200 soundbar, connected via HDMI Arc. I have to manually turn the soundbar on and when I turn the TV off the soundbar goes off but won't switch back on with the TV remote. The TV sound output setting also reverts to the TV speakers. CEC is enabled. Any ideas?


CEC often doesn’t do what it should IME. Beyond settings on each device you can’t control it further. I have a Chromecast Ulra with Google TV on a Samsung TV set up correctly for the chromecast to power the TV on and off. Only does one - might be the same as yours I can’t remember. My main setup uses a Logitech remote. I had to turn off all CEC after many hours playing with the order of power on etc of an AVR, streaming box and BD player.
