I have a month old 7100, and this issue is about to cause a divorce! Our old LG worked fine with my Onkyo TX-NR656 receiver, and anynet powered up the other device when either was turned on. The samsung periodically loses the connection to the receiver - HDMI is not even a visible option in sound source settings when this happens. The only solution is to power cycle the tv. It doesn’t matter how long I power cycle, or if I stand on my head and rub my belly and power cycle, I just need to power cycle.
It blows my mind that samsung has known about this problem for years and pretends it doesn’t exist or treats each person experiencing it as if they are doing something wrong. The simple fact is that cec and hdmi detection is broken on [apparently all] Samsung [smart?] TVs. I wish I had known that before I bought.
i do have a workaround question- does ARC still work if you turn anynet off? I’m thinking about using the arc port only for tv audio out, and a second hdmi cable for video from receiver to tv. This is stupid and should be unnecessary, but it doesn’t look like Samsung will ever actually make their tv’s work properly.
