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.
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.
