We have the new Chromecast with Google TV. We have it attached to a Sony Bravia 950H TV. I want to use the Sony remote because it has functions the CC remote does not. I thought that was going to be easy, because via CEC the Sony remote can control the new Chromecast with ALMOST no problems.
However: the Sony remote power button turns off the TV, soundbar, and Chromecast just as you would expect/hope. But for some odd reason, it does not turn the Chromecast on when I hit the power button to turn everything back on.
That means we have to keep the Chromecast remote around just to turn it on every time we turn the TV on. I’d prefer to stick that remote in a drawer.
Any idea why a Sony remote that works with the device for every other command via CEC AND whose power button will turn the CC off does not turn it on with the same power button? Any clever ideas to fix this?
