They said it would happen eventually and looks like the day is finally come. Anybody else noticed this? Before at the very least you would have to hit exit in a short delay before sending back in the HDMI input command in on some TVs you had to go exit, right, select, and then finally HDMI. This makes life way easier but I still like Sony better because they have the rear control ports.

I've noticed the current models/firmware will also power on with an input command... from off state.  If you send and HDMI 2 command it will power up to that input.

I think sending the input command will also take the TV out of any app and right back to that input.

I've just been starting to play around with IP control for Samsung TVs and figuring out all the nuances.

Current Samsung sets now have IP control as well.

Apparently, they are consciously putting effort in to make the sets more integration friendly.

So they are eliminating the stupid One Connect boxes?

Because we rarely ever have more then one HDMI cable plugged into the TV so the stupid box creates another mounting headache of figuring out where and how to put the thing.

Sometimes it helped make it cleaner but sometimes the opposite. Just doesnít work tho in the event you need a much longer One cable. I think there is a 15 footer available but itís $200

I just need to have you 'splain to me why IP is so great. IR has been trouble free on Samsung TVs for so long... why the love fest for IP control?

because the TV's we install are generally already connected to the network.

the IP/RS232 protocol is far more expansive than the IR. For example, we can push the TV to ANY app the client wants a hotkey for.
We get feedback on Volume, power status and even Input switches.

in a secondary room with a Samsung TV, DirecTV Sat box and a Bluesound Soundbar, I dont need to add anything to that room to add it to the control system. I drop the IP's into Composer or Racepoint and that room is now controlled through their ipads.

Theres no emitter to fall off or get moved.

You're controlling a Bluesound soundbar via IP from Savant?

Stupid proprietary cable. Stupid lack of even one analog connection. Stupid size. Stupid when tv dies in a couple years and they've abandoned one connect. I will not run their wire to equipment. I will only run HDMI to the tv and hide their stupid box behind the TV. After client gets a taste of Samsung service, they'll want a different brand next.

no, Savant needs Sonos still for IP control.
