I am using #0206 with my Samsung Smart TV and CEC suddenly is working instantly for me again without the need to reselect kodi each time after input source switching.
Is there something CEC related in build #0206 what has not been in build #0205 and previous?
If yes: congratulations, then whatever you've done fixed it for me Absolutey no need to read the text beneath!

If not, then - I know this will sound very
odd - the only thing, what I have done since I use this build what I have not done while using previous builds, is that today I played on my PS4 and pressed "Tools" -> "Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)" (talking about Samsung remote and TV menu) as if I would have to select kodi once again. Reason why I did this, is just because I have been curious if my PS4 would show up as CEC device in my TVs menu, now that I had to use this menu dozens of times to reselect kodi after input source switching.
Of course my PS4 didn't show up, but when I saw there was still "kodi" in the list, I pressed the onscreen button named "refresh". There are two onscreen buttons to the right of the CEC devices list, "refresh" and "abort", or in my German GUI it is "Aktualisieren" and "Abbrechen" and I used the refresh function rather frequently, because often after a new testbuild with altered "Pulse Eight CEC Adapter" or if I had changed some CEC options in libreelecs menu on my own I had to refresh this list to regain remote functionality, even if "kodi" was showing up. But I never before used this refresh function with another source than kodi until I for fun tried to connect my PS4 to the TVs remote.
Well, what can I say... I now can watch Amazon Prime and Youtube via Samsung Smarthub or switch the TV's input source to another HDMI input or internal "TV" and switch back to libreelec as often as I want and instantly am able to use the remote with libreelec without having to reselect kodi as source. My TV still says "Disconnecting Anynet" as ever (free translation from German) when using the smarthub, but right after terminating Amazon prime or Youtube and switching back to libreelec I can use the remote with it.
I know all that doesn't make much sense but I swear that's all what I did today what might be different from the other days...
Maybe refreshing the devices list while another source than kodi was active has somehow resetted my TV's or AVR's way to handle active CEC devices?
