Will Panasonic Plasma sync with Sony receiver?

by mcf57 / April 6, 2012 10:09 AM PDT

I have a 40" Sony HDTV and recently bought a Sony HD Home Theater receiver. I then basically connected both of them via an HDMI cable. Unknowingly, I noticed both pretty much sync up together when I control the Sony TV's volume & power. I thought it was the "BRAVIA" syncing feature & it may very well be, but I also recently learned about something called HDMI CEC.

I mention this cause I'm now looking to possibly get a 50" Panasonic Plasma (TC-P50UT50). Was hoping that if I connect this Pansasonic Plasma to my Sony HD receiver, this HDMI CEC would allow them to partially sync up (at least volume and power).

Would this be possible?

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?
