LN46A550 Default Input Mode

by ech01 / November 24, 2008 10:15 PM PST

I have a LN46A550, which is an awesome TV. I just love it. My only gripe is that my DirectTv HD Dvr unit is plugged in via a HDMI cable and the TV doesn't automatically detect it. It alsways wants to default to TV as the source, even though there is no signal coming through. It would be great if I could change the TV input to default to HDMI 1.

Any way to do this?

Isn't the default behavior enough?

My TV stays on the last input you have it set to when you turn it off. In other words, if I'm viewing HDMI 1 when I turn the TV off, when I turn the TV back on, it's on HDMI 1. Your TV works differently?

Or did you want some way to disable the TV input (which there doesn't seem to be)?

Disabling inputs
by Samsung_HD_Tech Samsung staff / November 26, 2008 6:21 AM PST

There is no way to really disable inputs on the television. Naturally, this would cause havoc for people when the purchase new peripherals.

You may try turning on the Anynet+ feature, which may (or may not) detect the cable box when it is turned on. Some cable boxes do, some do not, but I figure it might be worth a shot to see if the TV will default to the incoming signal with Anynet+ enabled.
