Using Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)
Use Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) to control all external devices that support HDMI-CEC using just the TV's
remote control. Note that Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) only works with the TV's remote control and not with
the panel keys.
You can configure the TV's universal remote function to control third-party cable boxes, Blu-ray
players, and home theatres that do not support HDMI-CEC using the TV's remote control.
For more information, refer to "Controlling External Devices with the TV Remote (Universal Remote
Anynet+ cannot be used to control external devices that do not support HDMI-CEC.
Anynet+ devices must be connected to the TV using an HDMI cable. Some HDMI cables may not
support Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC). In this case, you will need to replace the HDMI cable.
The TV remote control may not function under certain circumstances. If this occurs select the
Anynet+ device again.
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) only works with external devices that support HDMI-CEC and only when
those devices are either in standby mode or turned on.
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) can control up to 12 compatible external devices (up to 3 of the same
type). With home theatre systems, however, the number of systems that can be controlled is
limited to one.
To listen to 5.1-channel audio from an external device, connect the device to the TV via an HDMI
cable and the device's digital audio output connector directly to the home theatre system.
A home theatre system that has been connected to the TV using an HDMI cable and an
optical cable supports 2-channel audio only. 5.1-channel audio is, however, available for digital
broadcasts with 5.1-channel audio.
