Soundtouch 300 turns on every time i change source from tv

Hi i would like to ask is it normal every time i turn on my tv soundtouch to 300 to automatically turn on?i would like to select hdmi arc from tv in order to turn on.also if i watch cable at hdmi 1 and shut off soundtouch and hear from tv speakers and then open netflix or youtube soundtouch turns on again.tv is lg oled c8.also i would like to add that every time soundtouch turns on the last led doesnt always lit to show everything is connected which by the way is so i guess is a glitch?one time it is led the other it is not which is strange.

Re: Soundtouch 300 turns on every time i change source from tv

Hello Nionios, 

 

Thanks for reaching out via the Bose Community. 

 

Auto on/off for connected devices is generally related to an HDMI CEC setting found on your television. You mentioned you're using an LG tv, so this will be found somewhere in the 'Simplink' settings (Simplink is essentially their branding for HDMI CEC.)

 

For other users wondering about auto-on/off, the SoundTouch 300 has the ability to turn on automatically when it detects audio. To toggle between auto-wake and the default power setting, press and hold the Power button on the remote control until the soundbar emits a tone: A rising tone means auto-wake is enabled; a descending tone means auto-wake is disabled. This feature is helpful if you are using an optical connection.

 

Kind regards,
