Hi Chris,

I'am not sure. I will contact meveric as the DietPi image/kernel is based on his Jessie image.

Hi Chris,

Received a reply from meveric:
Yes CEC is activated and working fine. It might be though, that you have to install libcec to use it.

Code: Select all

apt-get install libcec

Hi Chris,

I'am not sure Chris, I've personally not tested or used CEC functions, however, merveric has. Here is his notes:
I used it on Kodi several times already, so it should work.
Although it's not bug-free either.. Exiting Kodi after you activated CEC might not be possible. There is a bug in the drivers causing it to NEVER close CEC connection, and Kodi is infintately waiting for CEC to be done closing the connection.
