Remote Control Question for User "aviewer"
Good afternoon, aviewer!
Based on several posts you've made to the forums, I'm about to purchase a Logitech remote to replace the standard U-verse remote. I have the U-verse Cisco DVR, a Samsung HD TV, a Sony DVD player and Bose Cinemate II speakers. The DVR connects to the TV using port HDMI 1 and the DVD player connects to HDMI 2. The digital audio output jack from the TV is connected to the Bose speakers.
When we watch TV, sometimes we use the speakers built-in to the TV and sometimes we use the Bose speakers. When we use the Bose speakers, I turn off the TV speakers using the TV's menu system (and the TV remote). This is a hassle and a half, but I believe the Logitech remote will automate this process for me.
I know I can set up both of the above scenarios using separate activities in the Logitech remote, and I can also set up a third activity for "Watching a movie". We always use the Bose speakers when watching a DVD movie.
My question is this: When I choose an activity that includes the Bose speakers, will the remote "tell" the TV to turn off the TV speakers or will I have to set this up manually? And when I want to watch something using the TV speakers, will the remote automatically turn them back on?
