Can I Program a Delay in "On" Sequence?

    Because of HDMI handshake issue I would like to delay the turning on of the C61K client until my TV has totally cycled on. This takes about 3-5 seconds. The sequence there now is TV first followed by the C61K turning on butthe delay is only about 1 second. I believe that the TV has to be ready to accept an incoming signal for a proper handshake and it is not ready until the aforementioned 3-5 seconds take place. When programming a phone dialer you insert commas to delay following digits.

    Any way with the RC73 "Peanut" remote?

    Use your TV remote to turn on the TV and then the c61k
    get a Logitech Harmony and program it. Many people do this.

    I've got two Harmonys. Both collecting dust. Maybe I'll dig one out just for this reason.
