Anynet+ wont turn on other devices

by simor_86 / October 14, 2011 2:31 AM PDT

I have recently purchased a 2011 Samsung D8000 LED TV, and I have set it up with my Denon AVR-1912 and a Samsung BD-player.

TV and receiver is connected through the TV's ARC with an HDMI 1.4 cable.

I have enabled HDMI CEC on all devices (including Anynet+ on the Samsung TV), and this works just fine.

Except for one thing, though: when I turn on my TV, the Denon receiver does not turn on. I can then enter the menu on the Samsung TV -> System -> Anynet+ -> Receiver -> ON

This turns on the receiver as it should on startup, but this setting is not permament, for some reason.When I turn off the TV, the receiver (and other devices) turn off as it is supposed to.

If I then turn on the receiver first, my TV remains turned off.

My old Bravia TV automatically turned on my receiver, as I turned on the TV, so the problem lies within the Samsung TV.

Are there any settings on my TV that I need to change?

I have exactly the same problem with a 2011 Samsung D7000 LED TV and a Panasonic Sound Bar:
I can also enter the menu on the Samsung TV -> System -> Anynet+ -> Receiver -> ON. This turns on the Panasonic Sound Bar, which is what I want it to do when the TV is switched on.
Unfortunately this setting is lost when the TV is switched off, which indicates to me that there is a software bug in the TV. Maybe if enough people complain Samsung will do something about it.
It will be interesting to know if anyone has similar problems with a Samsung Sound Bar.

It's a Samsung feature.

As indicated in another thread here, Samsung chooses to not turn the receiver ON through Anynet+ in their implementation. It should, however turn the receiver OFF when you turn the TV off.

I have realized it's a Samsung feature..

Maybe this thread could be regarded more as a request to the Samsung technicians roaming this forum, and as Graham287 said, Samsung might reconsider changing this feature if they recieved enough complaints about it.

I'm not very optimistic about this, but if we don't say anything, they won't change anything.

I have sent a request to Samsung's support as well.

A really annoying "feature" by Samsung.

Yes, Samsung Anynet+ is pretty useless

After several weeks trying to get it to work, I have found it was not worth the time. As you say, one device doesn't turn on the others, except that the TV will turn on the amp (in my case an HT-D6500) if you manually change the TV's source to Anynet+; but when the amp comes on it drops you into its menu and forgets the source it had before (or starts playing any disc that happens to be in th unit), so you have to manually select the source for the amp by scrolling through its menus - all this taking far longer than just switching the two devices on independently. Changing anything on the HT-D6500 always requires you to re-select the source from a long list including sources you don't have - it is incapble of remembering the source when you go into the menus.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
