Anynet+ HDMI CEC
I’m running into an issue were i’m curious if others are experiencing this.
I have a Samsung CEC+ compatible TV which in combination with MMM-NewPIR works.
The strange thing i’m facing that it works most of the time.
- Countdown from 10 to 0 --> TV goes into standby.
- Motion detected after several minutes --> TV turns on.
When there is like half an hour of no motion i can swing my head in front of the PIR sensor but nothing happens.
The statuslight on the PI defenitly get’s some activity at the moment it gets motion detected.
I’ve checked al my TV settings and there is no other powersaving mode active… Like none!..
@mdlefevere fun… I have a CEC tv that I can turn on, but not off
What module do you use?.
@mdlefevere i don’t cause it doesn’t work…
i have tried all the modules, and all the commands
i blank the screen, and use my webcam for motion detection
So that will be my next option if i can’t get this to work.
Do you switch it completely off at night or do you leave it with a blanc screen 24/7?
You have an estimation of how much power i draws in a day?
@mdlefevere blank screen when I’m not around.
power draw. the 55 is 82 watts/hour on, .5 off
the 43 is 65w/h on, also .5 off
You mean 5 in standy of with a blanc screen?.
If that’s the case it’s not worth all the trouble of trying to get CEC to work
@mdlefevere no. 0.5 (one half of one watt) is off/standby
blanc screen is on, so 82 or 65 for me…
I have not measured power consumption
I have 5 SBCs plugged into the same circuit (w the 55in, 4 hdmi ports)
2 - pi3 (1 runs homeseer to control my lighting)
and another pi4 I just got with the 7in touch screen and case
and then jetson nano in the hall (with the 43in)
and a mac mini
and my intel desktop (never off, but I power off the screens at night when i leave the office)
Thanks for the info.
I’ve setup a Pi3 with CEC and this seems to be working.
Even after a long time the TV turns on. My Samsung also instantly recognized the Pi3 as a CEC device unlike the Pi4. It had some struggle with the new Pi.
Could this be a Pi4 related issue?, or just Samsung?.
@mdlefevere no idea… CEC doesn’t work from pi3, but does partially from pi4…
not from any other SBC
