LinuxMCE HDMI-CEC control demonstration
« on: November 30, 2014, 11:01:00 pm »
Hi all, I thought I would share a video that Thom requested showing some HDMI-CEC control using a Pulse-Eight HDMI-CEC adaptor and the integration within LinuxMCE.

I'm not one for narration, so there is none, it makes the video a little boring but it does show what is possible.  What you will see is HDMI-CEC control of the TV/Amplifier and a connected PS4.  At the end you will also see an infrared controlled Xbox360 seamlessly integrated in the same setup.  The control is all performed from a Windows Orbiter but you can use any input device MCE remote, qOrbiter, USB game pad, weborbiter, etc, etc to achieve the same control.  This really demonstrates the flexibility and integration possibilities in the system.

All the same control is possible with a connected Raspberry Pi media director as well.

Enjoy!

Seems great...I ordered one and being anxious to try it out. And if qorbiter can really work with mythtv, then it's really great
