What exactly is HDMI-CEC?

HDMI-CEC is a feature that almost all TVs support. HDMI-CEC lets other devices that you hook up to your TV control the full extent of the TV. For example, CHILI TV can use your TV’s HDMI-CEC feature to:

  • Turn on and off your TV
  • Understand if your TV is already powered on or off
  • Switch HDMI input
  • Understand your TV’s current HDMI input
  • Understand TV remote presses
