Hopefully this is the right place for this question. I've done some searches, but could only find info on devices connected directly to the TV. I have an AppleTV connected a receiver and then the receiver connected to the TV. I'm looking to upgrade my old TV (doesn't support HDMI-CEC).

Wondering if with the new one, if the AppleTV signal to turn on/off on wake/sleep will also control the TV through HDMI-CEC. It currently controls the on/off of the receiver and it would be nice if it could also control the TV.

Thanks!

With HDMI-CEC I use my TV as the central hub. The TV connects to my various devices (ATV 4K 2022, Fire TV Cube, etc.) via HDMI-CEC so that each can turn on the TV and itself, and the TV then turns on the soundbar. HDMI-CEC has greatly simplified setting up and controlling an entertainment center! No real need to use a complicated and antiquated receiver system for that anymore.

Connection schema does not impact CEC at all.
It is a single wire that connects all HDMI sockets on all devices.
Logically, TV is designed to be the hub (device #0).
