I have a CEC lid from GoRite, which uses the pulse-eight adapter. Here's the video of my first installation attempt: GoRite CEC NUC Lid Installation - YouTube
Basically, you'll need to remove the board from the case to get to the CEC header.
Thanks... I will tried to nigth!
Thanks both of you.
JasonNUC the video was useful!
I connect the cable and the Sony Bravia TV made de CEC recognition BUT the OpenElec HTPC (openelec 7.0.1) is not working.
Some body know if necesary to configure some parameter?
I wll try to open this question on OpenElec forum.
thanks in advance
Openelec should pick it up automatically. Do you get a message that it's connecting to the adapter (in the lower right corner) when you boot it up?
Go to system settings and look under peripherals. Is the adapter listed?
I run Libreelec on mine and there's no configuration needed for it to be detected. Openelec should behave similarly. Since the TV sees it, we know the adapter is connected properly.
I have OpenElec 7.0.1.. is the lastest stable version!
I am not sure is the NUC Bios, OpeneElec version or the pulse-eight HDMI-CEC connector, or convination...
The HTPC-NUC-OpenElec "found" the pulse-eight HDMI-CEC connector. (left lower rigth corner in boot process), the Sony Bravia TV "found" de CEC Device in HDMI1, but the Remote Control (RC) does not work.
After pressing many keys in the RC the NUC-OpenElec makes a Poweroff.
In system-peripherals the "adapter" is "semi-listed", not the HDMI-CEC is found but the LibCEC is displayed. Without the HDMI-CEC decive, is not displayed. Ergo hardware is working.
Other information, before start HTPC with Inetl NUC the "RaspBerry PI2-Sony Bravia-Openelec 7.0.1" conbination is working wth HDMI-CEC functionality.
If you have any other recomendation please tell me.
You connected the adapter to both the CEC and USB headers, right? I've never had a Sony Bravia TV, so I can't speak to what functionality you should see. I know it depends a lot on your particular TV. For example, I have two Vizio TVs, one older and one relatively new. The newer one gives me full remote capability with the CEC adapter. The older one gives me power and playback functions (play, pause, ff, rw, stop) but no navigation.
Back to the NUC. Under peripherals, you should see something like this:
If you do, that means OE is detecting the adapter and loading the appropriate drivers. Go to Settings--System--Input Devices--Peripherals and select the CEC adapter. Does it show Enabled?
Some information... (spanish version...) - Some others ideas????
The HTPC with the NUC use version Openelec 7.0.1
The HDMI-CEC device is available in Openelec.
The CEC device is in HDMI1 in Sony Bravia TV:
In Settings--System--Input Devices--Peripherals and select the CEC adapter:
And is enabled (in spanish Activado)
Strange...everything seems to be working, except that it's not. Are you running the latest BIOS on the NUC? I wouldn't think that would matter, but it's worth a check. Does your TV require you to do any configuration to get the CEC adapter set up?
JasonNUC, again thanks for your support.
The BIOS... confirmed is the latest
The TV CEC functionality: the TV no require any configuraration... put my Openelec 7.0.1 with the RaspberryPI2 and it's working fine.
I update de OpenElec 7.0.1 to LibreElec 8.0.0 and the Pulse-eigth HDMI-CEC is not recognized, I return to OpenElec 7.0.1, the same situation.
Then... I wait the new OpenElec version to re-test.
Just curious, have you reached out to pulse eight to see if they can explain it?
The user in the thread has a Samsung TV, pulse-eight CEC adapter, and Intel NUC. The issue sounds similar and there are a number of troubleshooting steps you can try.
You may want to try another HDMI cable, just to be safe. Also, they bring up issues with ethernet cables. Are you connecting the NUC via ethernet?
