Windows and HDMI CEC

Hi All,

I have an LG TV that supports HDMI CEC for auto switching inputs etc...

When I enable it on my Chromecast it detects the device is CEC compliant and everything works.

However on my media PC nothing happens.  I'm running Windows Server 2012 datacenter edition in test mode.

How can I tell if my device is CEC compatible and if so enable it?

I'm running XBMC on the server if that helps.


Many thanks
D

Thanks for the links.

My TV is s CEC compliant, so dont need the first one.

And the second just says;

Now you have to find out if your computer/laptop supports this standard. Similar to other devices, you'll have to look in your user manual or google.


This is my card

All posts are from a few years ago to a year ago, but still pretty up-to-date and relevant.

Good post about XBMC and vid cards/CEC integration:

Guy seems to think that not many graphics cards are CEC compatible right now in this one:

Again, another one making it seem not as common on PCs, but talking about ASUS boards:
