HDMI-CEC control (RaspberryPi and PulseEight)
« on: October 23, 2014, 06:13:48 pm »
I am happy to announce that initial HDMI-CEC control has been added to the Raspberry Pi.  It is now possible to control your rpi MD with your television's remote control.  A compatible television is required.  Control should also be possible from your TV remote if you have a PulseEight HDMI CEC adaptor connected to your non-rpi MD.

Current control is one way, work will continue to add external device control in the future.

Enjoy!

J.

Do you plan on extending HDMI-CEC to allow the rpi to turn on/off the TV as well? and do input switching and stuff, ie. to use HDMI-CEC as a sort of GSD replacement?
