Remote CEC-HDMI broken after last update (RPi2) ( missing)

Got the automatic update info on the screen this morning and clicked on update/restart now.
After the restart my Samsung remote (LN52A550) stopped working and I now have to use a wifi Kodi remote via IOS/Android.

The kodi.log shows:

I followed instructions to power off the TV for a while (7min), power on TV and wait another 2 min … then turn on the RPi… but still, the remote via CEC does not work
Would be great to get a fix soon.

Did you search?


I only found these:


But no

Remote was working fine until this last update.
And maybe I am spoiled by the quality of OSMC as I never really had a problem after an update.

I mean did you search the forum?

A solution was posted about three threads below yours at the time.

Sorry, did a forum search, but it slipped. Looks my eyes are getting to old for this stuff :sunglasses:

It’s OK

Try the instructions, report back if you continue to have issues.

Followed instructions and all is fine again!

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall rbp2-libcec-osmc=3.0.1-16


To solve this recent CEC issue, I tried the following command on my raspberry pi 1:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall rbp1-libcec-osmc=3.0.1-16

Unfortunately, I’m getting an error message stating the package is not available.
Can anyone help?

Same problem here. tried the commands but still cec is not working. I am on Samsung 48h6200. Any ideas?

I get error

E: Version ‘3.0.1-16’ for ‘rbp1-libcec-osmc’ was not found

I have connected my Pi3 to Sony Bravia TV without mouse or keyboard. I don’t have a USB mouse and keyboard but can connect to the Pi3 by SSH.

I cannot use my TV remote nor can I use Airplay. Any help of how to enable both.
