Turn off CEC control on your TV

The Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) capability on your TV enables you to operate multiple HDMI devices in your home with one remote control.

Setting up your TV varies between manufacturers. There’s no definitive list of One-Touch-Play compatible TVs however, many newer and larger TVs support this feature.

The CEC can often be found in the TV menu under setup, settings or found in the source selection screens.

You will need to turn this setting OFF. You'll need to check your manufacturer's guidelines for more help.
