Well the blurb on LMCE talks a lot about being able to automatically detect components (such as the display) and control them, ie power on/off, select correct inputs etc, at the least when connected via a control serial cable, but the implication was that it could do this through several different interfaces - HDMI one of the main growing standards and includes the Consumer Electronics Control interface (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hdmi#Consumer_Electronics_Control_channel
) which is designed to do exactly that. So it is certainly entirely technically possible. As LMCE achieves this functionality through other interfaces (serial, I/R) I was hoping that it would through HDMI as well - seems logical to me, but as I say "I believe.." - are we saying that it definitely cannot do this? Seems like an obvious feature request, do you think?
