My TV, amp and DVD player all support HDMI Control so when I turn on the DVD player and hit play, the amp turns on and switches the DVD input and then the TV turns on and switches to the amp input. Very useful to avoid having to use three remote controls just to watch a DVD. However, my WDTV Live doesn’t appear to support HDMI Control, so when I turn it on nothing else responds, and when I turn off the TV the WDTV doesn’t turn itself off.
Is HDMI Control really not supported in the WDTV, or do I have some incompatibility between the WDTV and my setup?
If it isn’t supported, would WD consider adding it in a future firmware update? I have to keep my amp’s remote in reach just so that I can press the AUX button on it, as thanks to HDMI Control the TV’s volume buttons control the amp.
