Raspbmc's HDMI-CEC to Control XBMC with your TV remote | - Neil Broers Edit: Raspbmc RC4 now has CEC enabled out of the box – No need to enable the XBMC web server. It uses the newer libCEC which has significantly better support for different manufacturer CEC-based implementations, so chances are it will work just fine with your CEC-enabled TV. CEC is a specification that allows control of CEC-enabled devices that are attached through HDMI. Raspbmc has included a basic implementation of CEC in version RC3, meaning you can now control your Raspberry Pi installation from your CEC-enabled TV remote (well in theory, anyway). You’ll need a CEC-enabled TV or amplifier that is connectioned to your Raspberry Pi via the HDMI connector. Support for CEC was only included in Raspbmc from version RC3, but it is not present in the normal XBMC build. Go to Settings -> Network -> ServicesSet “Allow control of XBMC via HTTP” to on.Set the username to “xbmc” and leave the password blankMake sure the port is set to 8080

The Raspberry Pi Guy On the 29th of February 2012 a credit card sized computer was released to the public... Not only did it kickstart my interests in programming, electronics and all things geeky but it also kindled the same passion in millions of others: affecting people of all different ages and abilities around the globe. What was this miraculous device? The Raspberry Pi. An affordable computer that anyone can buy and learn computing with. The Pi enables you to do projects that you could only dream about and for only £25 it is remoulding education. The Raspberry Pi will turn two years old in the upcoming months - that is two whole years of inspiration, projects and learning. All of the videos clips and images in this video are either my own or those that I found on YouTube and through Google images - it is all in the public eye already and I am dreadfully sorry if I have missed out something that you would have liked to have seen. Here's to all of the years to come! MattThe Raspberry Pi Guy
