Sound touch 650 and the TV screen

Is there any way to listen to the Sound touch 650 without the TV showing a blank white screen.

The TV comes on again even if turned off (ARC technology)

Thanks to all

I never changed my settings to do that. I don't have a white screen with the sound touch.

You are correct in saying it's the HDMI control.  There will be a setting in the Bose for HDMI CEC (There is probably also one in your TV settings but it's sometimes branded for the TV - for example Sony use BraviaSync).  Change it to "On-Alternative" and your remote should still control everything, but not power on items as you power on devices.  If that doesn't work you can switch to "off" but you may lose some of the remote functions when controlling the TV or other devices.

@Morlock, great suggestion. @gbouloux, let us know how you get on. If this does not help, please can you confirm what TV you have? 

 

Thanks.
