On my TV in my lounge the V6 is plugged into HDMI 1 and when I turn the TV it defaults to HDMI 1 which is the input from the V6. On the TV in my bedroom even thought it's set to default to the AV side (which should be an HDMI input) it defaults to the TV (freeview). is there a way to have it default to the input from the V6? The V6 is plugged into HDMI 2 as HDMI 1 is physically blocked by the wall mounting bracket
As a general rule I would advise that turning on the TV box before the TV itself should cause the TV to recognise it as an active input and display this on the TV automatically. In addition consult your TV manual for any setting which would keep the input from changing.
Think I might have fixed this, will test later. I managed to squeeze the mounting bracket along a tiny amount, just enough to clear HDMI port 1 so the HDMI from the V6 has been moved to that. Unplugged the TV aerial and a Amazon Firestick (will have to experiment to see if that was putting out a stronger input than the V6)
