Sony TV won't sync with Sony Bluray player?

So, it used to be when I turned my player on, the input on TV would automatically switch over to bluray HDMI input. now, it doesn't do it. i go to Sync settings and the TV says it sends the signal, but it still won't switch over automatically.

any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance.

Try reseating the HDMI cable or try a different cable

Re: Sony TV won't sync with Sony Bluray player?

this problem is so annoying. i switched HDMI inputs. unplugged player for a day. reset all sync settings. nothing. it recognizes it's connected sometimes, but won't switch input automatically anymore...

Well sorry, you should probably just turn it off then.

This is a known issue across many brands.

Yeah, thanks Brian. I actually called Sony support. They walked me through steps I basically already did. Didn’t work. Then I tried just before and it synced. So who the hell knows...

Re: Sony TV won't sync with Sony Bluray player?

well, it seems that it only switches over when my XBOX and Roku-like device (HDMI) is on. it's weird. it only recognizes when that thing is on and switches over. when XBOX off, no switch. which is weird bc i never did anything with XBOX connection. all i did was hook Roku-like device to XBOX and that's it. in no way should that affect Bluray connected directed to Sony TV. i dunno...

Re: Sony TV won't sync with Sony Bluray player?

so, i figured out the problem.

when my Roku-like device is plugged into an HDMI port (had it through XBOX, but freed up another port on TV, so goes right through TV) the Blu-ray player is not recognized and thus does not change input automatically (XBOX or TV).

when i unplug the Roku-like device from HDMI, either on the device or TV the player reacts and changes like it used to.

why would that be?

doesn't make sense why another port being occupied would have any effect on player. very weird...

Anyone have a theory on why the above?

Yes

It has to do with the HDMI standard and the HDCP that is on these devices.

There is no work around save what you are doing.

Re: Sony TV won't sync with Sony Bluray player?

Seems weird but I don’t use Roku-like device too much and I just disconnect hdmi cable so player works perfect...
