I added a new device for my Samsung LCD TV - M8, I am using a USB UIRT.
I was able to find the right i/r codeset, and really all I want it do be able to do is turn the TV on and off at the right times. I don't use it for sound, and all the input is via HDMI direct from the core, no other inputs.
It seems to work fine, turning on and off the TV when I explicitly tell it to. However, strangely whenever I choose TV from the Media menu, it turns the TV off! Seems to think that the TV should be off - I'm assuming this is executing a scenario, and for some reason whatever I have configured for the connections is making it think that it is done with the TV and its time to turn it off!
No, the TV has discrete controls, even for power - that was confirmed in the wizard. All I did was create a new device and template because it didn't have one for my TV, configured the i/r commands, then went into the connections wizard - from there I clicked on the output of the Core and the HDMI input of TV, and it drew a line between the two. I figured that was it.
Can anybody advise what I am missing? BTW, the source select on the TV isn't discrete, it cycles through the options, and the wizard acknowledged that, so I am assuming it won't attempt to change it - but even if it does it doesn't matter as nothing else is connected, so the TV just ignores the command.
