HDMI CEC Supported Displays

Hi all,

For those who are making use of the HDMI CEC functionality on your displays, please may you share which display manufacturer and model you are using?

I'm looking for cost effective 32in LED TV's but struggling to find any that support CEC! Do most displays support this feature?

When using Linux on a PI, connected to a basic display, running the CEC scan command, I get a result of one device, the recorder which is the PI, so my understanding is that the connect display does not support CEC, even if there are no adjustable CEC settings on the display.

Is there anything else I should be looking out for?

Thanks,
Regards,

I know that people like to buy tvs with Cec support but I prefer commercial tvs with on/off scheduling built in. Works well when you have a device powered by the tvs USB port like a android device or a pi. Windows or Linux device I usually have it powered from the wall. On those I have sleep mode during the time tv is off and then wake with a reboot 15 minutes before tv turns on. Most commercial tvs have this.

Thanks for your response William. This is certainly an option. I'm interested in the checking if power is on idea, using the CEC feature and Riseberry, so I would like to find hardware to support this.
I have a Visio D1 24" LCD for my development display mounted above my desk and it supports CEC. I assume there's a 32" version and they're incredibly cheap.

According to my tests, it seems as though only Smart TV's support the CEC feature. So ill have to keep checking. Doesn't seem like Vision is available in South Africa
