I just exchanged my contour box for a new one, as my old one died. This one came with the XR-15 nremote. My old one used the XR-11 remote. I went through the setup, and paired the remote with my LG TV and my Sony audio receiver. I tested the TV with the volume AND the power button and both contolled the TV. I then continued to setup the Sony audio receiver. I tested it with the volume and power and it controlled both on the audio receiver. But now, when I hit the power button, it turns off the audio receiver, but not the TV on the first push. If I hit the power button again, it turns off the TV and turns on the audio receiver. How do I remedy this? I paired my old XR-11 remote with both and it works like it should. What am I doing wrong?
Was your LG powered on when you paired the Sony? Just me...but I'd factory reset the XR-15 and re-pair each device.
Why do I have a feeling it's a problem with HDMI-CEC? If you don't use it try disabling it on the TV and receiver.
Yes, the TV was powered on when I paired with the Sony. I’ve reset and repaired several times, always with the same result.
I’m not familiar with HDMI-CEC. I don’t think I’ve seen an option to disable on either.
HDMI-CEC is a technology. LG calls it SimpLink. Sony calls it BRAVIA Link, BRAVIA Sync or Control for HDMI.
Which codes did you use for each?
Although CEC does power devices on/off, I wouldn't think a receiver would power-on a TV as its shutting down...and vice versa. If each device has a power button, you could manually test CEC for each device powering the other on/off.
