Controlling a SmartTV using HDMI-CEC from your Dianemo System

Powerful HDMI-CEC Control without a Media Director

In this demo there is no Media Director being used. We simply have a SmartTV controlled by HDMI-CEC from the Dianemo Core with an Athena Orbiter running on a MacBook Pro (the Orbiter could be running on any device with a Web browser)

Here we show Dianemo being used to select a movie from the Movie Library, stream it to a SmartTV and then control the TV using HDMI-CEC control - notice how fast the UI is and how simple to use too;

Powerful, simple control of your home with the minimum of hardware. Yes you can use Media Directors if you want to, or just use them in one or two rooms. But in the main family rooms we've found that using SmartTV's usually makes installing Dianemo more acceptable to the rest of the family - the rooms look just as they did before Dianemo was installed. Typically in most homes that's a big win!

All the best for the holidays.
