I wanted to know how to turn on the TV and the box without turning on to the screensaver.
To give some color. We have a tv that we want to automatically turn on in the morning with a power timer, so both TV and the box is turned on at the same time, and both are powered off at the same time.
However, when the TV and box is turned on, it goes directly to screensaver. We want the TV to run the channel that we last tuned into, the next time that it turns on.
How can this be done? What settings must be on?
Do you have both the box and the TV plugged into the timer? If the box is always on, it goes into standby/screensaver after a preset period of time (maximum 5 hours). If you plug both into the timer, perhaps the box will come on to the last channel after the normal reboot cycle? Obviously, this will take some time. I have not tried this myself.
Yes, BOTH box and TV are plugged in timer. They turn on and off same time. It turns on to screensaver. So frustrating. When it was the old digital box, didnt have this problem.
I need to know how instead of the screensaver showing up at start up, it directly shows the channel I last opened.
No this didnt work. I already have the HDMI-CEC off. I have tried to put everything related to Screensaver off.
The TV and box both will be powered at the same time, based on the timer. Its not working still. Any other ideas?
Anyone from Rogers that can look into this??
