CEC name. Can't find


I’ve got the latest Kodi / OSMC (17.1 i think).

I’m trying to modify CEC name. In the past i’ve just edited nano /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/peripheral_data/rpi_2708_1001.xml, and now i can’t find it. Has it been moved?

I would be very grateful if someone could enlighten me.

I know it exists on fzinken’s system (thanks for your earlier post), however not on mine…i wonder where my TV is picking up the ‘Kodi’ CEC name from?

Cheers, Geoff.

Try creating the file, and add this to it:

    <setting id="device_name" value="The_Name_You_Want" />
    <setting id="device_type" value="1" />

It’s odd that you don’t have that file. I checked my 2 Pi’s and my Vero 4K and that file exists on all of them. You may have a different problem.


that worked like a charm Cheers mate. My Pi was a build new from the standard (non noobs) OSMC image, and I’m sure i didn’t delete. I wonder if a bug?

I just rebuilt from scratch on an old sd card using OSMC_TGT_rbp2_20170210.img and i can confirm that sudo nano /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/peripheral_data/rpi_2708_1001.xml brings up a blank document.
