Hi, suddenly I cannot control the Vero 4k with my TV remote anymore.
Coincidentally my TV received a firmware update while I was at work and when I got home I noticed this problem.
I did a factory reset of the TV, but that didn’t help. The TV remote is still able to change the receiver volume and the CEC on off functions work, but no arrow or ok functions.
To test further I disconnected the HDMI cable from the Vero and connected back to my Shield TV and in that case the remote can control the Shield without any issue, so CEC commands from the TV seem ok.
I rebooted the Vero box about 10 times and on one of these times, the CEC control worked…
I even set back the CEC settings in kodi to default, but no luck.
Hopefully you guys can help me figure out what’s wrong.
Thanks Sam, unfortunately it didn’t help…
I tried many power up sequences (receiver last, tv last, vero last) and even connecting the TV directly to the Vero without receiver. I just can’t get it to work anymore. It worked perfectly out of the box until today…
Devices are the same, but VIZIO updated the firmware of the TV yesterday. The problems started at the same time. This is suspicious because they mention some CEC changes in their release notes:
Update the Cast Shell to 1.27
HDR Certification for 2016 P and 2017 M and P series
Fix for casting DirecTV now app 30 second loop problem
Alexa Performance improvements
p65-e1 white line issue fix
CEC Auto Naming
Correction to blue screen when casting Spotify
General/overall system improvements.
Having said that, Denon and Shield TV continued to be CEC controlled without issues after the firmware update. Maybe some subtle changes that affect only some hardware…
No, I can’t make CEC control to work at all, excluding the receiver from the chain, using different shorter cables, etc… Nothing seem to work. Only once yesterday after a reboot it worked, but I wasn’t able to reproduce that again.
I’m new to OSMC, so I’m not sure when updates are released. Was there anything updated in the last 48 hours?
