Odroid-H2 HDMI-CEC support

Post by Mina » Sat May 09, 2020 11:47 pm

Hello,

Sorry if it was asked before, but I've been searching for long with no outcome.

Does H2 support HDMI-CEC ? If it does, did anyone test it!? Any draw backs / issues?
I'm planning to build a customized system using Debian, for customization requirements I won't be using any of the ready system such as (coreelec, OpenMediaVault, etc.), but the outcome should be (OMV + Kodi + some additional services including my own developments). I only need to know if H2 doesn't support CEC I'll have to setup a separate N2 for Kodi

Thank you

@rooted thanks for the quick response.
That's sad actually. Will have to use an additional N2 as it seems

C4 looks good, but isn't N2 more powerful!? with better heatsink, while it's an over kill just for coreelec it sounds like future proof and can be repurposed later. I'm only after 4K practically and cec is important for (family members)

Any specifics on why you think C4 is better? I'm all ears!

It's not better really, just plenty for CoreELEC and less expensive.

I love the N2 and it definitely should have a long life with a lot of exciting development.

From the announcement that the revised H2+ has pins to plug an external card into to enable CES service when using this suggested card:
https://www.pulse-eight.com/p/154/intel ... ec-adapter

That product comes in various harness configurations. Anyone know which configuration is proper for the H2+.

Thanks in advance.

We tested it a couple of months ago.
We will assemble it again and take some pictures with the H2+ early next week.
