Nope, powered externally from wall as mentioned in OP.
Although admittedly I did add that in an edit so even though you quoted it, perhaps you read before I added it.
Another weird observation... if I put my TV to another input, it works fine. This is almost a perfect workaround since if I put TV to a dead input, it is almost as good as being powered off. Not quite though.
