UE40D7000 tv default Source?

Is there any way to change the default Source when powering on the tv? Every single time I power on the tv I have to use the tv remote to change to the HDMI input for my satellite box. Its ridiculous for such a great set.

Did you try leaving the other ports disconnected?

Yes, that's what I had figured out in order to get around this - thanks for suggesting it. My tv doesn't tune in (no aerial at the moment) and I noticed it didn't go to tv, so I tried unplugging the dvd player and that worked.

But that's not a great solution - its too fiddly disconnecting the cables behind the boxes and not really something for everyone else in the house. What's really odd is that the order of the Sources is tv / hdmi / ext 1 / ... - and since tv doesn't work I would expect it to go to hdmi next, but it doesn't - it annoyingly goes to ext1 ! Maybe I'll play around connecting it to different slots.

Its funny because there are so many options for tuning picture, etc. but none to adjust Source - yet I see its been known for a long time. I've seen posts about universal remotes but I'd rather not go down that route.
