How does HDMI-CEC work on Portal TV?

This article applies to:Portal TV

HDMI Consumer Electronics Control (HDMI-CEC) is a protocol on some TVs that you can turn on and off using your TV remote. When HDMI-CEC is turned on it allows devices like Portal TV to communicate with the TV it’s connected to.

HDMI-CEC is also supported on Portal TV, and you can turn it on and off in Settings using your Portal TV remote. In order for HDMI-CEC to work properly, turn HDMI-CEC on in your Portal TV Settings and your TV settings.

When HDMI-CEC is turned on, your Portal TV can do things like:

  • Turn your TV on and change the input source when you accept an incoming call on Portal TV.
  • Turn your TV off when your Portal TV is not in use.

To turn HDMI-CEC on or off on your Portal TV:

  1. From Home, select Settings.
  2. Select Remote.
  3. Select TV and Receiver Control. Next to TV and Receiver Control you can see if HDMI-CEC is On or Off. By default, HDMI-CEC will be turned On.

Notes:

  • Not all devices support HDMI-CEC.
  • Different TV manufacturers refer to HDMI-CEC by different names.
