I've had the new Vodafone TV for about 2 months now. I have the TV box plugged into a network AV receiver (along with a DVD player and apple TV).
The other parts of the system work great but the Vodafone TV is so unpredictable, I never know if it will work or not. If it is working (getting picture and sound) and I change source to one of my other inputs, it is hit or miss whether I can change back to the vodafone tv or not. And turning on the TV, often I can't get the vodafone TV to work at all.
TV: LG 65UB930T
A/V Reciever: Integra DRX 3.1
Are there known issues with connecting through AV recievers? Got any ideas for a fix?
I seem to be getting a slightly better sucess rate but not at all what I'd call a good user experience. I'm suspecting the ARC or CEC functions of the various devices have something to do with this.
The Vodafone TV box seems a bt slow in this regard - if I turn on my TV and choose the Vodafone TV source on the AV receiver, best case scenaro is I get picure & sound in around 20 seconds. Thats best case!
What normally happens is while waiting for the Vodafone TV signal its like the receiver gets a "better offer" from the Apple TV or TV or DVD player source and the receiver automatically switches to that. I then have to grab the receiver remote and choose the Vodafone TV source again....this can go on for a few cycles till I get a stable outcome.
