Hi guys (and girls?), bit of an issue.

I've recently bought a sony muteki 7.2 system (HTDDW7600NZ1) and have hooked it up to my PS3 (40gb fatty) and 46inch Samsung Bordeaux (LA46N81BX). No high-brow cork-sniffing cred here, but it's grunty and makes my home theatre experience that much BIGGER.

i can't seem to get the bravialink/anynet to work consistently. Sometimes the PS3 will also turn off the Muteki when shut down via PS3 controller. Sometimes the Muteki will turn off the TV when switched off via muteki remote. The tv remote controls nothing but the TV.

I know that the ps3 isnt supposed to be able to control anything, and i'm comfortable enough with that until i get a newer slim model: but how can i iron out the TV-Muteki issues? In the TV menu the 'anynet' option is greyed out, and the muteki's HDMI control option is on.

Super-noob, i might be. If they're not compatible then that's ok, but the evidence of them SOMETIMES working together is frustrating.

Thanks for your attention.

Hey mate, try turning off the "HDMI Control" found under the PS3 system settings. It may even be an option for your Muteki system as well but I'm not 100% sure.. I'm sure there are some gents on here that will clarify this.

Regards
Conor

Sorry I read between the lines there, in that case turn "off" both your PS3 & the Muteki's HDMI Control :)

Thanks for the replies :)

After toggling the HDMI Control a few times on the Muteki, the AnyNet+ option on the TV became available.

They still won't turn each other off though. More playing needed, and a re-read of the manuals.

Also: there's no HDMI Control option in the PS3 settings, must be removed for old fattys.

Hopefully the rumoured Sony Tablet (or 'S1") with bravia link and PS3 cert can act as the world's most awesome touchscreen remote. Might get a Harmony in the meantime if i can't resolve the issue.

What version of firmware doess your PS3 have bro? It should still be available under system settings, that option has been available for quite sometime...

Ok cool, I gathered you weren't meaning yourself about the "fatty" model version ;) Upon checking on the Sony PlayStation website for the 40gig user manual, you should be able to locate the HDMI control under:

- "Settings"

- "System settings"

- "And it should be right here approximately 11 tabs down" ;)

The main issue is: HDMI Control is crap

Just turn it off on everything.

I install TVs, sound systems etc and I've never seen it work reliably or as desired, EVER.

haha, yeah i'm coming to that conclusion.

i have a Harmony remote on order... any excuse for touchscreens :) will keep playing around in the settings until it arrives.

Thanks for all the comments/tips!

Yes, as illicit said, HDMI control is crap - I think its potentially better for a home theatre sytem to have the sub & amp switched on first (warming up etc) before the TV and PS3 have been but that's just my own theory..

Anyway good luck with your setup mate!

update:

the logitech 1000i i bought off trademe not only solved all my issues in a fraction of the time i spent mucking around with CEC (that includes postage time, btw)...

...it also gives me a lot of super-nerd cred with anyone who comes over :)

A+ would trade again! Very cool.

The irony is that i'm now about to pack it all into storage whilst we set-up camp at the inlaws & hunt for a new house!


Silver lining: At least they have a bose multi-room setup :)
