Customer Question

I bought a 75" Sony TV. I connected it to a DVR, then to a Sony surround sound system/VHS and a Sharp blue ray system. The DVR is on continuously. The TV and the surround system come on at the same time when I press the VHS Tuner button. The sound always comes on. Sometimes the TV picture comes on and sometimes it defaults to the antenna/cable input, which requires me to change the Input to the HDML MHL input using the TV remote control. How can I get the TV input to stay on the HDML MHL input position?

No, the incoming cable from my service provider is attached to the DVR. From there, an HDMI cable is attached to the HDMI MDL port on the back of the Sony TV
