I have this exact problem as well. It is only on an OLD Samsung (from about 1989 or so) that is my 3rd set (for now.) The TV power will only work if I slide the switch at the top to TV. It doesn't work at all when trying to turn both the HR20 and TV on or off at the same time. The TV input button works all the time though. I just thought it was because I have a POS TV. Interesting to hear someone else has the same problem.Straegen said:I have successfully programmed my TV to power on and off using the PWR button when on the TV setting, but when I press the TV Power On or Off button only the reciever switches off. Any trick to get the TV to switch off with when pressing the TV Power Off button?
