I have several devices connected to the TV: PS5, Xbox, a sound bar and a video player. All are HDMI-CEC enabled, including the TV.

I have "Autorun Smart Hub" enabled and "Autorun Last App" disabled.

The Smart Hub has a box called "Recents" and when I turn on the TV it always focuses on that box. The problem is that if one of the external devices is in " Recents", the TV turns them on even if I am not going to use them and does not turn them off when I turn on another one or another application.

Energetically speaking, this is awful. In my opinion this is a defect that should be corrected.

Is there any way around this (without disabling HDMI-CEC)?

The only way to do it without disabling cec would probably be to disable auto run Smart Hub. That's kicking in the Recents which it then contacts and turns on.

No, this does not solve it. In this case, it turns on and directly displays the last used device or application.
