Turning on TV but not turning on Soundtouch 300

Hi all

I have the Soundtouch 300 5.1 set up on an LG C7 TV connected via the HDMI arc port on the TV.  When I turn the TV on I find i still need to turn on the soundbar with the Bose remote. Is there a way to have it turn on automatically when I turn on the TV with the TV remote?

 

It's confusing me because HDMI CEC setting is enabled on the TV.  Plus, the volume works on both controls, as does the channel changing etc, so I know ARC works fine (or seems to be).

 

Am I missing something?

 

I am looking to use the TV remote only, out of simpllicity.

 

Thanks very much

Also, turn on your LG Auto Power Sync.  Make sure your Bose 300 HDMI-CEC is on.

Awesome thanks it worked. FYI the HDMI Cec was on the tv and on for Bose but it set to alternate on. I changed it the other type of on.
