has anybody tried this device?

wouldn't this do the same as the other device for a 3rd of the price?

Hi Hari,

Any progress?
Will this be available on both 0810 and 1004?

Dianemo S supports the following CEC interface from Pulse-8;

http://www.pulse-eight.com/store/products/104-usb-hdmi-cec-adapter.aspx

Its only £29.99 GBP so its far cheaper than any earlier CEC interface we've seen. Its supported in the current release of Dianemo S for volume up/down, Volume mute on/off and Power Standby on/off. There will be broader support for the other aspects of CEC in future releases of Dianemo S.

The Pulse-8 is nicely built and very compact and the CEC lib seems to work well to. We've had zero problems with our units to date.

All the best

In LinuxMCE there would need to be a new CEC device created etc and new UI screens too. In Dianemo these have been created and are working. Our devices use our DCEwhisperer framework and our UI skin is different too.

The CEC lib is available & common so it could be integrated in LinuxMCE for sure.

All the best

Why not just use Raspberry Pi as CEC controller? It is much more powerfull device and even cheaper, not to mention that it can run media center itself...

Does the Pi have the capability to interact on the CEC bus, or is it like most graphics cards....?

If it does, cool!

you can interact in both directions via libCEC. So writing a DCE device is straightforward.
