I (yet) did not test with #0207, but of course I tried unplugging my TV from mains a lot. You (or @popcornmix) told us to unplug TV from mains a while ago, and since then I unplugged TV from mains any single time after I tested a new build. But this never worked for me. (it did not help for the builds with broken CEC, so weather I unplugged TV from mains or not, didn't cause anything for me)
Well, sometimes when I read people are using cronjobs to shutdown their TV's via certain CEC commands, I doubt, all of us have the same opinion, what it means, if CEC is working (not meant to be offensive at all, I also do many things using cronjobs and daemons, e.g. my AVR doesn't switch into standby if no audio is played, so I have to turn off AVR using a script cURL'ing http-requests every few minutes)
Nonetheless when I myself am reporting "CEC working fine for me" I mean, TV remote is completely usable for me for kodi on the one hand and for my smart tv's menues on the other hand without all this "need to permanently reselect kodi"-stuff. Nothing more.
And *this* is working absolutely satisfying now for me.
I uploaded a short video, so everybody who is interested can see, HOW I prefer my remote to work. It's just 1:55, so you may wish to take a look at.
This is taken from build #0206 and of course I solely use the TV's remote to control Samsung Smarthub and libreelec and no attached keyboard and things like that (which can be seen by the remote-signal-indicating red flashing LED at the bottom right edge of my Samsung TV btw)
Video is with German userinterfaces, so here is a short description:
In this video I start navigating through libreelec's menues for a while. Then I press the smarthub button on my Samsung remote, select Amazon Prime and use my remote to navigate through Amazon Prime menues for a while. Then I terminate Amazon Prime and instantly navigate through libreelec's menues again. Right after this I press the source key on my remote, select "TV" as source (which causes a "no signal" message for me, because I don't have sat/cable connected to this TV) and finally select libreelec again (TV recognizes this as my AVR because I switch hdmi sources via AVR) and am able to use remote with libreelec again.
Video: Video showing working CEC without need to reselect CEC device
I think this is what almost everybody wants when talking about "working CEC" with Samsung TV's, isn't it?
@nick_w I read your private message but for some unknown reason I cannot answer via private message. Thank you for telling me about Samsung's CEC issues and updating. I didn't update my TV since Octobre 2016 and CEC is working for me as shown in the video. I NOW updated the TV, just because I am aware of a new update since your private message, but I did this AFTER CEC already was working fine for me.
Edit: Of course I tested powering the TV off and on as well, and this also works now without CEC issues. I didn't show this in the video, because I do not want everybody to see my private email address which my Samsung TV is displaying when powered on and logging into Samsung services.
I also seem fine on CEC control with an Onkyo media center and a Samsung TV.
