Vero4k is connected directly to TV now. I have powered everything down and rebooted several times. Turned CEC on TV on and off. It “detects” the Vero 4k in it’s enabled CEC list, but I still don’t see any evidence of keypresses in the debug log.
Found a solution that seems to be working perfectly. Leaving it here for future googlers. TCL has a CEC-Remote Codes option in the service menu that needs to be enabled so that it passes remote codes via CEC.
Try this: Home x5, rewind, down, fast forward, down, rewind
Turn on CEC Remote Control and see if it works for you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I’ve been trying for a week to get my new 8 series tv to control my ps4 and shield.thought I was going to have to call tcl till I ran into this post…THANKS THANKS THANKS MAN.made this accout to just say that.
Ahh…CEC, conceived to make things simpler for the average consumer. In reality, the most poorly thought out, inconsistent, and frustrating feature imaginable.
My experience is that if you dare to have different brands of equipment, CEC will require hours of frustrating piddling about and an advanced degree in stupid design. Plus when you finally get it all working nice, a simple power cut will bring it all crashing down in the blink of an eye.
It’s an absolute travesty IMHO.
(This rant is about CEC in general, not a comment on OSMC’s implementation)
