Re: HDMI CEC and XBMC

<r>I"ve had a reply from the Pulse-Eight people … and the good news is that it is their intention to add CEC support into libcec – going to the native RPi hardware (ie no external device needed).<br/> <br/> <URL url="http://forums.pulse-eight.com/.....4#post1824">http://forums.pulse-eight.com/.....4...

Re: HDMI CEC and XBMC

This is a great piece of news (video from 2 days ago). Given that someone from TeamSBMC has an alpha board then I"m very hopeful that this means that the info (even if private for now) is in their hands as well.
