How to enable HDMI-CEC settings for your A/V receiver or soundbar

If you’re using an A/V receiver or soundbar that has HDMI-CEC (other common names are listed below) settings enabled, this can cause some interference with Ray. With this setting, your audio device will automatically switch to its TV input when it detects Ray trying to switch inputs.

Fortunately, Ray has a setting to account for that. If you know your audio device has HDMI-CEC turned on, you should also enable it in Ray.

1. Tap the settings icon on your home screen.

2. Tap the list item "Devices."  

3. Tap either “Soundbar” or “A/V Receiver” (whichever one you have)

4. Tap “Advanced Settings” (you may need to scroll down to find it.
5. Tap "HDMI-CEC Settings"
6. Tap the “HDMI-CEC settings are enabled” option (the green checkmark indicates this selection)


If at any point you decide to disable the HDMI-CEC settings in your audio device, you should also disable it in Ray. Just follow steps 1-3 above, and then tap the “I don’t use HDMI-CEC” option.

NOTE: If you can’t determine if your device has HDMI-CEC settings, be aware that there are many different names for it used by different electronic device brands. Here are some common alternatives:
