I have disabled CEC in my Vero 4K as it interferes too much with my setup, but it still seems to be having an effect of sorts.
I have a Phillips 50PUS6754, a Pioneer VSX-933, my Vero, and some other bits that are unaffected.
They are all connected through the Amp, and the Amp is connected to the TV with a single HDMI cable with ARC turned on for the return audio from the TV’s built in streaming apps.
I don’t use CEC on my equipment because (in general) it is more trouble than it’s worth, however I do have the option on my TV to use a basic version that only deals with power, and not using the same remote for 10 different devices.
To cut a long story short, with it turned on on my TV and Amp, the TV can detect the Amp (puts a little Amp symbol in the source list), turn it on when the TV is turned on, turn it off when the TV is turned off, and switch source on the Amp (to ARC) when I use the built in streaming Apps on the TV.
This all works great until I plug the Vero into (any) source input on the Amp, then the TV stops detecting the Amp, and turning it off when the TV turns off. The amp still turns on, and still switches sources when I use the built in apps.
By repeatedly messing with settings and power cycling I found that I could get it all working on the two devices with the Vero disconnected, connect the Vero and sometimes it would all play nice, but as soon as there was a power cut (happens a least once a month), it would all stop working again.
Anyway, as of a couple days ago, I cannot get it back up working again at all. As soon as the Vero is connected to an input source it affects the whole system.
The only other option I could think of on the Vero was an audio ‘keep awake’, but I checked and they are all turned off. The send low level noise option was on, but I turned it off and it made no difference.
Can you think of anything else that may help?
Oh, and I’m using the last Vero software that was based on Krypton.
