Pulse Eight HDMI CEC - Port?
« on: January 22, 2015, 09:09:12 am »
Hello there,

I bought the adaptor mentioned above.
I need help understanding ports and pipes in LMCE.

My MD ist connected to an AVR input, as well as my PS3.
The output of the AVR is connected to the TV (all via HDMI).

My actual channel setup in webadmin is as follows:

0000 TV
2000 AVR
2100 HDMI adaptor
2200 PS3

- Does the HDMI adaptor need an address setting?
- what about address setting Nr. 5 (instead 0) as mentioned in the the libcec documentation, when HTPC is connected to an Avr.

Thanks!

Bernd

The pipes in lmce and ports/channel values in CEC are mutually exclusive and not specifically related, but all are required for proper operation.

Good question.  The values you are entering into webadmin are 'Physical Addresses' on the CEC bus.  The number '5' you are referring to is a 'Logical Address' within the CEC bus and is automatically assigned by the television to the AVR on the CEC bus.

If you have the above values in your webadmin settings for the CEC devices then you now need to connect the AV pipes for the devices in the Connections screen of the AV Devices setup.  I'd be more specific but I'm not at a system atm.

I'm assuming your MD is connected to the HDMI Adaptor (pulse eight).  The adaptor can be given the address of your MD/Adaptor.  I don't recall if this is required off the top of my head, I'll double check when I'm at my systems later on.

hth.
