Receiver upgrade to one that can properly talk to Samsung TV

So I am finally ready to pull the trigger on a new receiver. Love my Denon AVR-3313, but it has one issue I won’t miss.

It is connected to my Samsung TV and set up to be turned on when the TV turns on, controlled through the cable remote for volume, etc.

Unfortunately the Samsung tells the demon to change the input source to TV Audio every time.

Do the new Marantz/Denon receivers still have this problem or have they engineered around it?

Any input appreciated - have it narrowed down to a Marantz or Integra.

And yes, I researched the old threads on this and couldn’t find anything about a resolution.

Thanks!

Are you using CEC to do this?

My aunt has a samsung tv and newer Sony avr. She likes the CEC setting in the Samsung, but I was able to show her how by Disabling the feature in the tv, allowed all of her components to function better with her Harmony remote.

As her Samsung tv, kept trying to set the avr to the incorrect input, even after the Harmkny remote set the proper one. I hate the CEC feature, doesnt always works as it should.

Do yourself a favor, disable it, and grab a logitech harmony or suitable universal remote.

(R&L: Infinity Beta 50) (Center: Infinity Beta C360) (Surround Side & Back: Infinity IW ERS 210 x 4) (TM: Infinity IC ERS 110 x 2) (Sub: Def Tech SC1)
(7.2.2 Config.) (AVR: Denon 4100) (Audiosource Amp 110 for TM's) (BRP: Pioneer 80FD) (Display: Panasonic TC-P65S1)

Thanks for the quick responses. I’ve considered the harmony remote and even have an old one in a box somewhere. But this is for the family room where the wife and kids prefer minimal remotes.

I don’t see a new TV in my immediate future so was hoping that receivers have engineered around this problem.

Went with the Integra DRX 4.2. Hopefully I can avoid the dreaded cable sat...

You realize once you set up the harmony, that's the only remote you need, right? You put the other remotes away since they are not needed. It controls the tv, AVR, set top boxes, etc. you can't get more minimalist than one remote.

And set it up properly so all they have to do is click "Watch TV" or "Play Videogames" or whatever.
