Contour to Sony smart TV via hdmi, the to soundbar. Many mornings, when I turn on the TV, nothing turns on until I pull the plug and replug. Today, I got the Contour 'welcome' screen when i finally was able to get the TV on. However, the internet worked fine. Problem likely with Contour v. TV?
How's the soundbar connected?
Were you having problems with the Internet?
I don't know why the TV wouldn't consistently power-on unless either the batteries in the remote are low or the infrared sensor is partially obscured.
It's: Contour box to TV; TV to SB. Internet works fine.
Good guesses but no obstruction at sensor and batteries are new. Sony thought it might be an issue with the power stripe so I plugged it into the wall-same issues.
