Soundbar connection from Phillips TV to a Samsung HD 550 soundbar


The sound bar only needs sound input from the tv so optical cable connection will work fine. HDMI cable will also work fine. Use the one that you have available.

Why does it turn on, then off?


"HDMI-CEC", short for HDMI Consumer Electronics Control, is an HDMI feature many TVs and peripherals have.

If the TV is connected to an HDMI or a programmed remote is being used on the cable box the TV may be getting a second command via the HDMI cable.(CEC) Suggest disconnecting the HDMI cable and manually turning on the TV and see if it will remain on with just a blue screen, Try changing the input to antenna-DVD etc and see if the TV remains on.

You may need to check the settings in the cable box or DVD to change the auto control(CEC) feature. Or if you prefer controlling the TV via the cable box remote then you would not use the TV remote for turning on and off.

This can get very confusing because the TV and the DVD or the TV and the cable box will interact between each other. The problem can be more confusing if the components are not exactly compatible with the CEC. Also many remotes have the additional feature of controlling other components in your AV setup. Many times the operation is alternate action. So each cycle of the remote the TV changes state from on to off. If the two components are out of sync than one is on and the other is off. In that case not using the master on off of the remote but using the individual component setting allows for the two to be sync again. (both off or both on)

Is my Sony Grand Wega Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) compatible?


Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) What is Consumer Electronics Control (CEC)?
Consumer Electronics Control or CEC is a function that allows you to control multiple devices over HDMI using one remote control by having a secondary device receive commands from a primary device. Although CEC wiring is required for every HDMI port it does not mean that every HDMI port will have the function enabled.
If your device has the CEC function, this information will be located under your setup or settings menu.
To enable the function you will need to turn the CEC function on and then search for any devices that are CEC enabled that are connected to the TV.

Why wont the tv pick up any HDMI input?


Hello. CEC stands for Consumer Electronics Control. This allows you to use one remote control to operate multiple devices that are connected with the HDMI cables. Since all of the equipment worked before the power surge, it is very likely it will work again. We just need to "reset" everything.

Start by unplugging all devices from AC power and disconnecting the HDMI cables. Assuming you are using the TV remote to control everything, pug the TV back into AC Power and turn it on. Go thru all standard setup on the TV as needed (set date and time, scan for channels, etc). Turn the TV off.

Connect the first HDMI device to AC Power, connect the HDMI cable and then turn on the TV and the HDMI device. Check to see if the remote controls both devices. If it does not, go thru the Setup options on the HDMI device (you may need to use the original remote control) and see if there are any settings that apply to the HDMI CEC settings (enbable or turn them on).

Repeat this for additional HDMI devices.

By unplugging both the controlling device (TV) and the controlled device (such as a Bluray/DVD player) and then reconnecting them in the correct order, you should be able to get all devices working on the same remote again.

Is there a way to turn off the TV and hear music. I have tried but every time I turn off the TV the receiver goes off


What is the source of your music? And how it is connected to the receiver? If via HDMI, then it is not possible. Source HDMI device will not put any audio into the HDMI when the display device is not turned on (it must authentificate with the TV to be sure you are not doing any unauthorized copying).

If your only issue is that when you turn off TV it turns off the receiver, then turn on the receiver only after you have turned off the TV. If this causes the TV to turn on also, you have HDMI CEC enabled. HDMI CEC enabled devices to communicate with each other via HDMI - receiver can tell TV to turn on/off. You can disable the HDMI CEC support in receiver menu if you want. After that, your TV and receiver will turn on/off independently of each other.

The "new device found" screen keeps popping up


Inspect for damaged pin on INPUT 1 socket. (left most of the three HDMI connectors)
A quick pull on the cable can damage the pins.
=== If you see mis-aligned pins then please power off the set before making corrective action. ===
============== Here's a textbook instruction from Mitsubishi
If the New Device Found Screen Displays No HDMI Control Option If the New Device Found screen shows no option for HDMI Control, one of these conditions applies: • HDMI Control is turned off in the menus of the new device Action: a. Highlight EXIT and press ENTER to close the New Device Found screen. b. Display the device's setup menus and enable the device's CEC capabilities. c. Wait for the TV's New Device Found screen to appear again. d. If the New Device Found screen does not appear, power off the device. Power on the device and wait for the New Device Found screen to display with the HDMI Control option.
Next time you see the NEW DEVICE FOUND screen pop up.
Toggle the CEC field (on the right side of the pop up) to OFF.

HD Video Recorder - CEC connection with HDTV


My first question would be, Is your Panasonic HD recorder CEC compliant? CEC means Consumer Electronics Control. That simply allows for the consumer to have better control over their Home Theater set up through the connection of you HDMI cable from their remote control without programing the remote control for every single device that is connected. If your recorder is CEC compliant the television should have automatically recognize the recorder and control you recorder via remote control (I am assuming that your recorder is an HD Camcorder, since your description was very vague). Once you connect your HD camcorder to your panasonic tv the tv should have turned on switching to the correct input and the same for any other CEC comliant devices. If your Panasonic HD recorder is not CEC compliant the you would have to start viewing your recorder the old fashion way, by using the recorder remote control or if your Toshiba remote is universal punch those codes in so that you can control your devices that way. If that don't work, try a different HDMI input and select the input and make sure your recorder is set to output on you tv. Hope this helps.....before I forget, check out this site to learn more about Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) http://www.videsignline.com/howto/207400325
