  • The more that technology does for you, the more you find that it can't.
  • Just a footnote. My Pioneer Blue ray packed up this week. Bought a Sony replacement, plugged it in, no setting up. Out of the box it switched on the TV, grabbed it's input by the cahones and brought on the sound system. When I later switched off the TV it shut down the blue ray and sound system the way it should but i had…
  • @Roy Thanks for your input. I've decided I can live with having to use two remotes. It was a little challenge trying to get this to work, but in the end, life's just too short. Keep up the good work.

 @Roy Sorry I meant my old HDR1000S
  • @Roy Sorry, I didn't know you had replied until told today by youview support. Re. CEC v BraviaSync. Not sure what you mean. Pic 1 from my TV settings says that BraviaSync controls HDMI devices. Also you can see that my other devices are connected. (And these work properly) I can't get my Humax to show up here even though…
