I woke up this morning and tried it again now it's working differently from just last night. After a reload/reboot it connects to the TV much quicker, as soon as the orbiter is displayed the TV turns off (This is what I want). If I try to watch Hulu or a video everything works as expected, the TV even turns off with everything else when I press the power button. For some reason if I try to watch TV from my cable box or my blu-ray player the TV turns on then immediately turns off. When I press power to stop watching media, the TV turns back on then turns off. Last night it was working except it wouldn't turn the TV off now all it wants to do is turn the TV off. It appears that I have full control of the TV if I go to resend AV codes and select them manually.
I feel like someone is messing with me, It was working one way when I went to bed and a different way when I woke up... I just don't understand.
I did some searching and stumbled across this (http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/554
). Sounds very close to what I'm experiencing. Does anyone have any more information on this? Looks like this bug has been squashed but i think this is the same problem I'm experiencing. First think this morning the TV would turn on, Switch to the correct inputs, then switch back to HDMI2 (MD input). I reloaded and it started turning off immediately after turning on. I'll try the work around when I get home tonight.
