Resolved Question

Samsung 8550 and Blu ray control

by pkgjockey / March 27, 2015 1:02 AM PDT

Hello, I have a new Samsung 8550fxza and a new Samsung BR H6500 connected to a new Sonos sound bar. Dish is connected to TV HDMI1 and the BR to the TV HDMI2. Using Source I can see HDMI2, however when selected I get a message that no device is connected. If I turn the BR player power on with the BR remote and then select HDMI2 everything starts up. The Dish Rec and BR are behind a base cabinet. The TV Standard remote controls both units without any issues. However, again, with the BR, I have to turn it on with the BR remote first. Any suggestions on how to turn the BR on with the TV Standard Remote and/or get HDMI2 to recognize the BR and turn it on? Thanks for any help on this. Signed, Lazy.

Have you tried turning it on using the Anynet option? You can go to the tools and Anynet + and select Blu-ray from there it will change the source and power the Bluray on for you.
