Our Sony Bravia TV has just had a Rasp Pi 3 connected to it via HDMi. Have just proved now that with Pi turned on or connected to the TV, switching the TV fails and it comes straight back on again.


Anyone had this and worked out how to fix it ?  Thanks.

Cheers - Kirk

So Googling mentions and there's some talk of Removing D14 from somewhere. But I'm hoping there's something less intrusive.

My (old) Bravia has an option to turn off CEC. I think it's called 'Bravia Link' in the menu. Alternatively it looks like it's possible to add the line 'hdmi_ignore_cec=1' to config/txt.
