I wanted to add one of our old Blu-Ray players to the kids' playroom where we have an old TV with just 1 HDMI input.
When I went to add the Roamio to our 3x HDMI switcher, I noticed that the switch LED's didn't light up meaning there was no power being transferred to the switcher. Because of this the Roamio will not send a picture over the switcher. I thought pretty much everything these days carried 5V power over the HDMI. It's odd to me that the Roamio would not do this.
The only time the switcher would power up was if I turned on the Blu-Ray player, which, then would send the 5V signal over the HDMI.
Is this true? The new Roamios do not send any power signal over their HDMI connection?
