4-Port HDMI Selector turns itself off

Hi,

I currently have an HDMI selector model RF-G1185 that has 3 devices hooked up to it: 1-PS4, 2-PS3, 3-My Laptop. My TV has 2 HDMI ports: 1-the HDMI selector, 2-DirecTV. The DirecTV line goes to 2 seperate TV's and the HDMI is split by a rocketfish splitter model RF-G1182. One line goes to my living room and the second comes into my room and plugs into my TV. The strange/anoying thing is that if I am in my room playing my PS4 and someone is in the living room watching DirecTV and then turns the reciever off my HDMI selector will also shut off. At first I had the DirecTV plugged into the switcher and thought that would be the problem so I direct wired it to the TV and am still having the issue. Does anyone have any idea why? 

Thanks

Hello j_wallace08,

Welcome to Community@ Rocketfish™!

This is most likely an issue with the CEC function of the TV.  Each manufacturer has a different name for this function.  You'll want to turn this off and that should stop the TV from turning it off.
