I was wondering if anyone has been able to get control of their HX9V via the TV remote using a HMDI cable and a BRAVIA Sync compatible TV.
I have connected my HX9V to my Sony KDL-40HX803 and followed the instructions from the manual (Viewing an image on a "BRAVIA" Sync-compatible TV), by the letter, and still no control even after trying 3 separate HDMI ports. The TV does provide HDMI control over my Sony Blu-ray (BDP-S470) and my Yamaha AV amp (RX-V2067) so is it the camera or the cable?
As you've not had a reply in the last few days, my guess would be you might have more success on the Bravia forum; however I have managed to find an online i-Manual for this setup which you might not have seen:
Thanks for the reply and the link. I had seen that link and I am afraid still no luck in getting the function to work. I would appreciate you moving the question to the Bravia forum and see what happens.
The problem turned out to be the cable. After Sony support suggested that I get the camera repaired I went to a Sony shop with the cable and camera and found that the camera was operated by the TV remote correctly, using the Sony’s shop Maplin cable, but trying my original cable directly to a TV the control mode was still inoperative.
So it seems that some HDMI mini cables do not provide the proper connections for the control mode which uses the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) connection on the HDMI cable, pin 13, to allow the TV remote to control the camera. In the end I ended up buying a £20 Maplin cable which does work!
