NAD C350 input selection question

I have an NAD C350 amplifier that I've owned for about 5 years now. I've recently began using it as my main audio for my TV, and a minor issue is driving me crazy.

Currently I have my TV audio connected in to the Video input selector, and my CD player in the CD input selector. When I first turn on the amp, it always automatically defaults to the CD selector. However, 99% of the time I want to watch TV, not listen to a CD, so I would prefer it to default to the Video selector. As it is, each time I need to wait a few seconds until the amp fully powers up, then click the Video button. I know it's not a big deal, but when I have to do it many times a day it becomes annoying.

So... anyone know how I can set the amp to automatically come on with Video selected, rather than CD? I've read through the user manual PDF onlines and browsed some forums with no luck. Either this is not possible, or I'm missing something simple. Any help would be much appreciated.

(Yes I know I can probably just switch the two connections, but it seems silly to have my TV connected to CD and my CD player connected to Video...)

Thanks!

If they're both just line level inputs with no electrical difference, switching seems the easiest solution, albeit an aesthetic and anal retentive audiophile no-no (pardon the alliteration.)

What happens if you don't turn the NAD off?

Good point! At idle that NAD should consume very little electricity.
