    George, HDMI signal is two-way communication between displays and players. Under normal circumstances, when one is not sending or receiving the signal, the other device is shutting down. For example, if you shut down your cable box, the TV will turn off also shortly. And vice versa. PC devices are bit different because you can make them stay up even if the display is off. This is what is happening in your case. You turn the TV off, the PC stays up, but it senses that the TV is off and stops sending the signal until you reboot it. That would not happen with a proper PC player like NUC, but Sticks are known for having this issue. This also often happens when we reboot Sticks. In your case, I would get a power timer with 2 plugs. This way you can program it to cut the power to both, TV and stick, at the same time and turn the power on at the same time for both. Or you can get 2 separate controllers for each device and offset the boot-up time (because there might be issues if one, most likely PC, takes longer to boot). But this is going to work only if your TV can turn on automatically when power is provided. Regular TVs cannot do that. Digital signage TVs can. Or just do not stress it and turn off and on both at the same time.

    Hi George!

    In addition to the great advice above, please ensure the 'Reboot' property of the Display in question (at apps.risevision.com) is set the way you'd like.
