Hi,

Please see the overview of my config here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghewtpjsvbypy1h/Overview.pdf

Everything works fine, it s only annoying I have to manually press the hdmi switch to switch between Raspberry Pi and TV.
F.e. I watch tv (via settopbox) and want to see movies from raspbmc: switch off settopbox via remote control but I still have to manually press the hdmi switch for having raspbmc on my screen.

Howto make this switch occur automatically (without the need to go to hdmi switch and enter button)?

Note: raspbmc is on all the time, haven t found a way to do a wake on lan (doesn t work for me).

Please advise.
