The TVs found in most homes these days have various connected entertainment devices such as over-the-top devices, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, and game consoles. It can be a pain to manage the connections. But Auto Detection makes finding connected devices simple. Ever connected multiple HDMI devices to your TV only to get confused about which device was on which HDMI channel? Perhaps you’re familiar with flicking through the TV/AV channel input selection menu trying to find where the DVD player is? Ready to give up? No need, as Auto Detection solves those problems. It knows more about your various devices than you’d expect. When a device is connected via one of the TV’s HDMI ports, the Auto Detection function finds it automatically and displays the name of the device. No more wondering whether your game device is HDMI1 or 2.

Alternatively, you can also use Remote to select Source.
