Power On/Off Button on Soundbar's Remote is not working after enabling HDMI CEC function

With CEC enabled, ALWAYS use your TV’s remote control to power ON and OFF the soundbar.

Once HDMI-CEC is set up, DO NOT use the soundbar's remote control to power ON or OFF the soundbar. The TV’s HDMI-CEC has taken control over the soundbar’s power functionality. The power button on soundbar's remote control will become secondary, which will result in no response or delay on the soundbar.

To control other source devices besides TV, always use your source device’s remote control to power ON (or press play button) the device. The source device will send a HDMI-CEC signal to power on your TV and power ON the soundbar automatically.

When finished watching a movie or TV, always use the TV remote control to power OFF. The TV will send HDMI-CEC signal to the soundbar and the source device to automatically power them OFF.

Note: Different manufacturers have modified the CEC features to suit their needs. This may cause CEC communication issue and may forces connected devices (e.g audio device, soundbar, receiver, etc) to perform command unintentionally.
