Make sure you're running the latest BIOS, then enter BIOS and go to Devices and Peripherals-On Board Devices. That's where you'll find your CEC options. You should have settings for turning the TV on/off there.
This is the expected behavior for CEC using HDMI;
I would like to check some information in regard to your configuration, so please respond to the following;
- BIOS version installed.
- Cable brand and model you are using.
- Provide your TV model.
One more thing I would like to share with you is that can find more information in regard to developing CEC in Python here; http://www.hdmi.org/pdf/whitepaper/DesigningCECintoYourNextHDMIProduct.pdf, and our Intel® Developer Zone which you can find here; https://software.intel.com/en-us/forum.
Here is the information.
BIOS version: 2.2.23
Cable: No idea where it's from, the only thing I see is a GE logo.
TV Model: Vizio E550i-B2
So as far as I can tell there is currently no software that can send CEC commands from the PC to the TV. But is it even possible to create something like that?
Will the NUC also tell the TV to switch to the proper input, or is this strictly ON/OFF?
I'm guessing it does. I don't have anything hooked up to my TV except the NUC. (That's also why I want to be able to turn the TV on and off using the NUC)
Care to test?
Change your TV input to antenna or whatever is available. Turn on the NUC and see if it switches.
newbies, please give it a try.
I recommend updating the BIOS version you have currently installed, 036 is the latest version. Here is the link for the file; Download BIOS Update [BNKBL357.86A], use this method for the installation; F7 BIOS Update Instructions for Intel® NUC. Also make sure to enable CEC in your TV, see here for the instructions; http://cdn.vizio.com/documents/downloads/hdtv/E550iB2/UM_E550iB2.pdf page 47.
Let me know it goes.
I have CEC enabled and the NUC turns the TV on when I turn it on and turns the TV off when I turn it off. My question is whether or not there already exists any software or some way to trigger whatever CEC command the NUC is sending from within Windows.
I couldn't find any stand alone software to do what you ask. It is incorporated into some media server type programs XBMC/Kodi i believe. If you are able to develop at all, you could give this a try:
As mentioned before, I could not find either a solution similar to what you are looking for. Our Intel® Developer Zone may have more answers on developing one, check here for the forums; https://software.intel.com/en-us/forum.
@det_bradlee, thank you for your help.
I would also like to know what exactly the capabilities are of HDMI CEC in the 7th Gen of Intel NUC.
Is it possible to use my TV remote to navigate through a media center software (e.g. Kodi) or do I need an additional Pulse-Eight product?
Right now I can only see that it's possible to turn on/off a TV which is kind of disappointing to be honest.
SpaceAgeHero, please refer to post #2 to get more information regarding this matter, and in this case for us to further assist you and to help you with the specific problem, please create a new thread, make sure to add all the details in regard to your system. This way the next agent will have a better look at your specific scenario, you can add this thread as a reference but I recommend creating a new thread in order to isolate your case.
I have a NUC7i3BNH with latest BIOS and the HDMI fix.
I purchased this adapter from Pulse-Eight: Intel NUC HDMI-CEC Adapter - Pulse-Eight - Ultra HD Distribution and Control Products
I then used this guide to install the adapter: Guide: 6th Gen (Apollo Lake) - Pulse-Eight - Ultra HD Distribution and Control Products
I have the NUC connected to the smart hub (a separate box to plugin HDMI connections) of my Samsung TV UE55KS7005. I have also a Yamaha AV receiver (Yamaha RX-S601D) connected to the Samsung smart hub.
I have windows installed on the NUC. Once the NUC powers up the TV asked if "I wanted to use the Samsung TV remote controller with the PC".
I then first had to select AV Receiver = Yamaha and do a test, first test failed, 2nd test was successful, then I picked Bluray player (Options were setup box, home theater, bluray player) and here I picked "Microsoft".
So when I have the NUC show up on the TV then the Samsung remote gives med up, down, left, right, ok - option gives record, stop, play/pause.
Next step will be if I can re-map some windows keys to the remote using the tool "Windows - Advanced MCE Remote Mapper Tool" from http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=164252
At the moment the NUC is turned off when I shut off the TV, that's not the behavior I would like. If the media center is recording a tv show it should not stop just because I turn the TV off, so I need to go play with some settings in the BIOS.
I'm not sure if this answers your question. If you just want to turn the TV on/off with the NUC then I don't think you need to the pulse-eight adapter.
There are some details here on the NUC TV CEC: HDMI CEC Information for Intel® NUC
