Connecting Samsung 3D TV, Sony HTS 3D, Wii, & ATT Uverse

by maripour - 6/14/11 1:26 PM

My new Sony OTB Home Theater System & I spent many hours the last 2 nights getting to know each other and trying to make a love match between components. They are fighting what I was told would be a seamless connection so now it is time to take it to the mattresses.

Equipment for connection -
Samsung 7000 Series 3D TV Model UN46C7000WF (w/ Apps), Sony 3D Blue Ray HTS Model BDV-E780W w/ built-in wifi/amplifier (w/ Apps), Nintendo Wii, & ATT Uverse boxes consisting of; Motorola HDMI Receiver Box & Wireless 2Wire Gateway DSL Box (for digital TV/internet/voice/home DVR)

Initial 4 Connections as per Sony HTS manual & "quick" connect (plus cross-ck of Samsung manual)
1. ATT Receiver HDMI(out) to Sony Blue Ray HDMI1(in).
2. ATT LAN moved from Samsung TV to Sony Blue Ray LAN(in)
3. Samsung TV HDMI/ARC(in) to Sony Blue Ray HDMI(out)
4. Nintendo Wii - Red/White Audio to Sony Audio(in) & Yellow to the Samsung Video(in). After an hour with Sony, there is no direct component connection on the Sony-it must be split.

REALLY, THIS MUCH WORK WITH THREE REMOTES WHEN YOU TURN ON A TV??? Is there something else or am I missing something???
Initial connections 1-4: result in
a. At startup; TV, Uverse, and Blue Ray take manual manipulation to get them on the same page. The Samsung reverts (defaluts?) to the 'TV'(HDMI/DVI)as its source & does not look for the HDMI/ARC connection. The source for the Samsung has to be accessed manually via Samsung remote at each start up to reset/scroll to the HDMI/ARC connection. Samsung does not (?) grey-out the unused source connections. This is also required if I change the Sony source function. When I changed connection #1 of Sony ATT HDMI(out) to the Samsung HDMI/DVI slot, (leaving the HDMI/ARC connection between Samsung and Sony), the Samsung starting source known as 'TV' is now correct. I can then turn the ATT remote off/on and the TV is functional, but not if the Sony is sync'd to turn off with the other equipment or turned off manually. Is there a way to make the Samsung look for the correct HDMI connection/source if the ATT Recv is left hooked up to the Sony Amp (as I was told I could do) and/or not default to the source known as 'TV'?
If the Sony is turned off, will I always have to scroll the 'functions' on its remote to set up the source conn?
b. I have since moved the ATT LAN conn #2 from Sony LAN to Samsung LAN(in) since Blue Ray is wireless & TV is not. Correct? The Samsung does not recognize a connection for apps/updates w/o as it is not passing through from the Sony. If I access the Apps on the Samsung it disconnects the Sony Blue Ray.

Is having a universal remote for these 3 possible????
Is it true the the ATT Uverse remote trumps all others and if you want to integrate, it must be the Uverse remote that is your primary vs Sony or Samsung?
Based on my hookup, how will the Uverse remote impact the other components?
If I can link, what are the codes for Samsung and the new Sony HTS system?
Will I still need the individual remotes to access the Apps available on each & have to continue to fiddle with sources?
The current Uverse remote and Samsung are programmed for on/off, but the apps for the Samsung have to be access by the Samsung remote.
