v18 -  LibreELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 18.0)
(2017-02-08, 10:05)RappaSan Wrote: Still the same cec problem with switching the tv off via cronjob. The last version that worked (mostly) was #0113. Tested all versions up to #0207.
But: after switching off Kodi didn't react on TV remote commands anymore until rebooting. When rebooting the TV always switches to "on". That's annoying.
Nevertheless: Milhouse version of Kodi is still my favourite one...

Running a cron job to use cecclient while kodi is running is just not going to work.
Perhaps doing a "systemctl stop kodi" before doing your cecclient commands will work better.

OK, but when i restart Kodi the TV also restarts. Is there any way to prevent TV from starting?
And by the way: In #113 it's possible...

And #114 isn't? That doesn't seem likely as there were no CEC related changes in #114.

Is it possible to re-initialize the cec-connection between TV and Rpi/Kodi via command?
@popcornmix:In 114 it isn't possible.

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.

Thanks for the logs!

You have a local copy of [email protected] file, dated Jan 12th in /storage/.config/system.d that's now interfering with the recent lirc changes. Just remove it and you should be fine again.

so long,

thanks.
can you tell me how I go about it?
How do I determine the file?

On the shell type
Code:

But if you don't have much experience with this better do a completely fresh install with the LibreELEC Installer.
Or do a hard reset via kodi settings->libreelec settings "Reset LibreELEC to defaults"

so long,

I also seem fine on CEC control with an Onkyo media center and a Samsung TV.

Please test add-ons with latest build.
Report if they are any faster and if you see any strange behaviour.

Then I found the error.
It was because after I installed the latest LibreELEC-RPI2.arm-7.95.2.img.gz
Also I've been driving an old backup, so I got all my settings,Laugh it can not do, now does it all perfect thanks

Cec still doesn't work as was before. If you update cec setup in peripherals then link is lost till reboot. After rebooting, sometimes I have to reactivate cec link in source. That didn't happened few months ago. Connection never lost.
