Standard HDMI CEC support, or at least GigaBlue support

Recommended Posts

After replacing my D series Samsung with LG W7V I had discovered that HDMI CEC on the top model from 2017 does not do things that my TV from 2008 does.

I have GigaBlue Quad Sat Receiver, which I do not want to give up on, as it is much more versatile than built in tuner of the TV. (e.g. streaming over network etc)

Old TV recognized receiver as 'tuner" device and forwarded most keys to it.

 

But LG asks to specify model, Gigablue is not available as an option and nothing but switching on/off and selecting source works.

In HDMI CEC test plugin on the sat receiver I could see that NONE of the keys are being sent, TV keeps asking/sending Vendor ID.

 

In 2017 having problems like this is ridiculous.

    • Question: Virtual HDMI ports

      I have been thinking would it be possible to make a HDMI switch that connects to the TV (maybe via USB to control it), the TV knows it's a switch and add virtual HDMI's and by selecting one of the virtual HDMI's is tell the switch to select the correct port.

    • HDMI ARC - Audio Out Not Working (Again)

      I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver.  This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue.  However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again.  I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.

    • Question: No Sound from HDMI Input

      I have a LG OLED55C7T TV, with the latest software. I replaced my Topfield 2400 PVR (1080P) with a Beyonwiz U4 (2160P) on HDMI 1.  I get picture but could not get any sound to the TV via HDMI.  I tried both SD and HD channels. All show video, but no audio. I checked all volume and mute setting on the TV and on the Beyonwiz. I checked the TV firmware is the latest available release. I tried all of the HDMI inputs and 3 different HDMI cables with no luck. I tried other devices in these TV HDMI inputs and all worked properly (i.e. had sound). I re-flashed the U4 Firmware and went through the setup again. Still no change. I tried setting the TV to factory defaults and setting it up again, but still no sound. I connected an optical cable from the S/PDIF output to my amplifier and sound works. I tried plugging the U4 into another TV via HDMI and it works properly - both video and sound. But the combination of the U4 and the LG TV does not work. So, I'm convinced that its software or a setting on either device that is mismatched. The LG work perfectly with all other HDMI devices that I connected to it (BlueRay Player, Topfield PVR, Nexus Player, Canon 5dMk4 Camera) but I can't get it work with the Beyonwiz U4.  The U4 works fine via HDMI to another TV.  So why won't they work together?  What settings should I try changing?
