New Smart box HDMI CEC?

Hi

 

Can anyone who has this new box tell me if it supports HDMI CEC so that if the TV is currently on another HDMI input when you interact with the Now remote it will switch over the input to Now TV? Also if it is able to power on the tv when pressed please?

0 Thanks

Hey @schnapps

 

The team have got back to me 🙂

 

So this is currently not enabled on any of our NOW TV Boxes however it will be coming in the future across all of our NOW TV Boxes

On my Panasonic TV with the Veria Link (HDMI CEC) function setup, there is no interaction with the new NowTV smart box.

 

Don't know if any other users have had any success ?

That's a shame if so as I too have a Panasonic TV with Viera link. Thanks for the quick reply. Smiley Happy

My honest answer @schnapps is that I don't know.

 

But let me find out for you, might take a few days though.

Hi,

 

Is the CEC support still on the roadmap? Is there a plan when this feature will be enabled?
