Here is what currently happens:
With the "Ignore On/Off" turned to "Off" , located in the advanced page inside the av device page for the TV, the TV turns itself off and all commands sent from the system to the TV work as far as power on or off.
The problem here is that when I exit Media, like turn off MythTV or a video finishes running, the TV power off immediately. Then you have to manually turn the power on the TV, to view the UI2 menu. Now this is just a bit annoying, but that is not the real problem.
After exiting media, and manually turning on the TV, if you go to watch something else, it starts and the TV powers off, because as far as the system knows, it's last state was off, so it sends the command again (my TV only has a single command for on or off) and you hear the media but now the TV is off.
So to resolve this issue, I have set "Ignore On/Off" to "On" in the advanced page inside the av device page, so now it does not turn the TV off, and by itself this isn't bad, but because it is ignoring the on/off commands now, I have other scenarios I use to power off/on the TV, and they don't work.
Now i look in the orbiter screen, and see there is a check box for "Leave Monitor On for OSD" and I have it checked. I thought this might leave the TV on for viewing the UI2 menu, but still allow for the system to turn off the TV after inacvite time has passed, and allow for my other scenarios to power cycle the TV, but it does not work this way. It still powers off the TV after media exits.
So I was hoping there was another setting somewhere that I can make it so the UI2 menu is displayed, before and after the media starts and exits, while still giving the system control over powering on and off the TV
I know this is a bit long, but it is the best way I can describe it.
