Hello. Had problems since forever with CEC. Actually I never used it, as it never worked. Not with my previous x86_64 devices, not with the Cubox I4 Pro (running GeexBox, OpenELEC, LibreELEC and such) and two different Samsung TVs. Not with N2 (development nightly CoreELEC) and the latest Samsung TV I just replaced. I just got some annoying behavior where nothing worked on the remotes, but the TVs were randomly starting after being shut down. So had to disable everything to get some sleep, blamed Samsung and swore to never buy one.
And now it seems I can’t get CEC to work with N2 and my new LG SmartTV… and this one literally does nothing. But after all this time and hardware and software I am really sick of using 3 remotes.
- Odroid N2 4GB;
- CoreELEC 9.2.0 playing stuff from a FreeNAS, via SMB;
- 2019 LG 55" Nano-Cell SM9010PLA - great device with a great remote;
- no AVR in between, as I am using my Yamaha in another room;
- and yes, changed the HDMI cable with another one; like the most expensive one with a big CEC logo (SIC).
Now: in Input devices CEC is enabled on the N2. On the LG TV too (SIMPLINK), tried even the so called “Device connector” with different players (which makes no sense), but set for “Another box” as per their documentation. Reset everything multiple times. I just need the volume, play pause, and the directional/selecting stuff to work. Not interested in shutting down anything, my N2 is always up, so just hope to control Kodi from the LG TV MR19 remote.
Can someone give me some noob advices on how to get this shit to work? Really, I am at the end of my patience and something will get kicked out of the window 10 years is too much sir, too much.
