How do you turn off the auto-detect HDMI feature? Sometimes my Apple TV comes on and then the TV automatically turns on as well but I don't want the TV to do so. How do you turn off this feature?

 

Thanks,

Mark

Oh man. I'm having real issues with this

I have the U.K. kS7000 and if I turn it on without the Xbox being on and switch to the Xbox I put it fires off all the xboxes in the room. This causes issues when my sons are playing and it turns them off !!

i now have to have the xbox on first no matter what I do with the tv to stop it happening.

I like the idea of auto switching to a device that has been turned on or activated in some way but Samsung should allow the user to enable/disable for each input.  Come on Samsung!  Put someone on this please?

I suppose a workaround for the autoswitch issue when a pc is connected to an HDMI input and is turned on or wakes up is to never shut off your pc?  (what a lousy idea...for some)

Here's another glitch.  I renamed the HDMI3 input to "Computer" but it doesn't stick.

Probably because when the pc goes to sleep there is no signal so the naming defaults back to HDMI3.

Make us happy Samsung.  The customer is always right.  Please fix.

Problem solved without waiting on Samsung:

Bought myself an Aten VS481B HDMI switch for 50 euro (about 100 dollar) and it works like a charm.

Also gives me more inputs (the standard 3 HDMI inputs are very poor) for free.

And now I also have only one HDMI cable from the DVD/Humax PVR cabinet instead of 2 or 3.

I don't have to look at it, it is auto-switching, but not annoying like the Samsung TV.
