HDMI-CEC without CEC display (No root device)

Thu Oct 17, 2013 10:47 am

Hi,

I want to use my RPi as a media centre mainly to listen music.
I have a Denon AVR-2313: 1- connected to RPi via HDMI and 2- connected to a monitor via HDMI-DVI.
As there is not CEC-TV, CEC doesn't work.
(For your information: This is the way the genius designers build the CEC standard!!! Very clever isn't it? For example, could you imagine the USB standard working only if a printer is connected and ON? Convenience for a roaming laptop! So CEC has to have a CEC-TV connected to work!)

I want to use the AVR remote to choose the music on the RPi and switch on/off.

So far I tried Openelec but the hack cecanyway is not implemented and I don't know how to build it.

Is there someone with the same issue and a solution?
Is there another media centre with CEC hack working without CEC-TV?

Many thanks

masterluke

Hi Masterluke,

I opened a new topic in Openelec.

I'll try all the ways.
