My AV Scene does not power on/off devices as expected

If you have created an AV Scene but the devices you have added in your AV Scene are not powering on/off as expected you may want to check your HDMI CEC settings on those devices. Depending on the manufacturer the HDMI CEC settings may have different names,  please look for a setting that ends in "Link" or "Sync." Here are some examples:

  • LG: SimpLink
  • Philips: EasyLink
  • Samsung: Anynet+
  • Sharp: Aquos Link
  • Sony: BRAVIA Sync

In the case you have HDMI CEC activated on the devices you added in your AV Scenes, creating an AV Scene with Smart Remote will add redundancy of on and off commands to HDMI CEC. Smart Remote will power on and off each device individually in addition to your HDMI CEC doing it as well. This will result in an inconsistent power or input switch while turning on or off your AV Scenes. 

In that case, please just make sure to deactivate HDMI CEC for these devices to let Smart Remote handle the power on/off of your devices
