This is a Bose Soundbar 500 (799702-1100). TV is a Sony KDL-55EX640 (2012 model). -HDMI 1.4. - (Per owners manual) BRAVIA Sync™ simplifies control of compatible Sony components via the HDMI connection (HDMI-CEC) I have the soundbar connected to the TV via both digital optical wire and HDMI to the HDMI port 2 on TV. This seems to be the only way I can control the Bose 500 volume via the Sony TV remote. If I use just a digital optical wire only the Bose 500 remote can only be used to adjust the Bose 500 volume. I prefer to use the orignal Sony remote and keep everything all in one. HDMI port 1 on TV is used with a blu-ray player. I also use the OTA HD TV tuner. The issue I am having is everytime I power on the TV, the TV input automatically goes to HDMI 2 (Bose 500) and displays the black Bose Music app screen regardless of the last used input. I am looking to resume the last used input when powering on the TV.

Having issue with Bose soundbar 500 automatically switching HDMI input when powering on tv. TV is a Sony kdl55ex640 (non-arc). I have an optical audio wire plugged into both tv and sound bar and also the provided HDMI plugged into soundbar and HDMI port 2 on tv .Everytime I power on tv regardless the last tv input it's automatically switching to the soundbar HDMI input and displays the black Bose music screen. No option to disable the HDMI input on tv settings only option are auto and always. Is there a setting in the soundbar settings that I am missing to correct this auto input switch on tv powerup?
