The steps below will show you how to configure using HDMI-CEC.
Display Control leverages the Pulse Eight libCEC library for sending power commands to your screen. You can verify compatibility of your screen with the libCEC library here. If your Media Player is running Windows or Ubuntu, you will need to manually install the libCEC Drivers due to both OS's requiring administrative privileges in order to install.
To install the libCEC drivers on Windows, simply download and install the drivers from here. For Linux, open Terminal and enter the command sudo apt-get install cec-utils.
If your hardware is not compatible, RS232 might be an alternative option for you.
Configure Display Control for your Display
- From your Display List, select the Display you want to configure.
- From the Display Settings, select the “Configure” button next to Display Control to see the Display Control configuration.
- Update the interface= parameter to be interface=cec as shown below. The remaining parameters apply to RS232 and can be ignored.
- Click the Save button
When you have completed the steps above, Rise Player will download the updated configuration and turn your Display on and off according to the Schedule it is assigned to.
