I'm generally very happy with my Now TV Smart box, but am having one small issue.
I have a Now TV Smart Box and BluRay player plugged into a soundbar. This is plugged into a TV's ARS HDMI port. Now TV is running the latest softare, with CEC enabled.
What works as expected
What doesn't work as expected
Thanks a million,
Since the latest firmware update 7.7.3 on the smart box, a few owners have had issues with the incorrect HDMI input source automatically selected on their TV's when switching on the box from deep sleep mode (including myself)
See this link thread below.
I have a soundbase where I normally use HDMI 2 ARC on my Panasonic TV where the smart box is connected to one of the three HDMI inputs on the soundbase.
When hooked up to the soundbase, for a split second the smart box will start up and will select the correct HDMI input No 2 on the TV, then for some unknown reason the TV will then select HDMI input 1.
I tried connecting the smart box to a different HDMI port directly on my TV , but it still won't select the correct HDMI TV input on start up.
Prior to firmware 7.7.3 update on the smart box the HDMI CEC worked perfectly on my TV when using the smart box.
Hopefully the NowTV Team will provide a patch fix via a new update on the smart box.
My Panasonic TV now seems to play nicely again over HDMI CEC since the latest firmware ver 8.0.3 build 4181-16 update was pushed out today on my smart box
Any joy with your Panasonic TV over HDMI ARC with your soundbar setup since the update on your nowtv box ?
