Display Control is a feature included with Rise Player Professional that can automatically turn your Display On or Off according to the Schedule it is assigned to allowing you to conserve electrical usage and extend the life of your hardware.
How does Display Control work?
You can configure your Display to use Display Control from the Display Settings page. Rise Player (the software running on your Media Player) will save the Display Configuration locally and send Power On and Power Off commands to your Display according to the Display Control Configuration, and the Schedule it is assigned to.
Display Control can be configured to send power commands via HDMI-CEC or RS232.
What are the requirements for HDMI-CEC
Both your Media Player and Display need to support the HDMI-CEC in order to use it. If you are unsure whether your hardware supports CEC please refer to the manufacturer's user manuals.
Also note that the manufacturer for your hardware might use a trade name instead of HDMI-CEC. For example, Samsung refers to HDMI-CEC as Anynet+.
Do the Media Players available in the Store support HDMI-CEC?
Does the Raspberry Pi support CEC?
Yes. The Raspberry Pi 3 natively supports CEC.
