CEC has standardised 'codes'. Play, stop, up, down etc are the same for all CEC devices. You don't need to specify what make and model of device you want to control.
You DO need to specify make and model when you need to control it by IR. My Samsung TVs came with a little 'puck' which plugs in to the back of the TV. Place it where its IR beam can be seen by the device(s) you want to control. Then use Universal Remote setup to program the TV to send the requisite electrical codes to the puck.
I have used RPi/OSMC with one of my Samsung TVs. CEC works. The Universal Remote Setup is irrelevant for that.
I have the same question. It seems I need to fake the Samsung TV into thinking the RPi is a "device". There's no other way I can get the Samsung remote to adjust my external A/V system's volume otherwise.apetty0414 wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 7:22 amSo I got the CEC remote to work with the Samsung Universal Remote (Model A07-10200 "Smart Controller" which is Bluetooth not IR that came with the TV) by literally doing nothing. The question that I was confused about that I still do not have a way to setup is through the TV its self. The TV is a 55" 4k Curved Smart TV 2017, it detects devices that are connected to it. Through this process it gives you options to setup so the remote can utilize more of its capabilities (ex. voice control). I am trying to go through that setup process and the different devices listed for setup does not list Raspberry Pi or OSMC/Kodi. There are many different devices such as Xbox or Apple TV or Roku. Since this does not give you the option for Raspberry Pi, I was hoping someone on has had experience with this and has another way such as selecting a similar device to tell the TV what is connected and for Remote features. Since basic CEC features are working I am happy, but I would like to complete the setup. Any experiences with this TV would be excellent. Thank you for your quick response though!!!
If by "same problem" you mean that you are trying to find the correct "device type" for the Universal Remote setup, then you are just as confused as the OP!
It is not a Samsung TV limitation. It is a failing of the AV system.CroppedBee wrote: ↑Mon Aug 27, 2018 12:04 amThe part you my be confused about, drgeoff, is not actually related to CEC but rather is a peculiarity of Samsung’s setup. You can’t control an AV system with the Samsung remote without telling the Samsung tv that you have a device and that you should be using your AV system with that particular device. Best I can tell, you can’t use the Samsung remote with the raspberry pi and Kodi if you have an external AV system. It sucks. I had to buy a conventional universal remote because of this Samsung limitation.
