Post HDMI CEC support on Mintbox 2
I have connected my brand new Mintbox 2 to my Samsung EU46D8005 TV. Im runing Linux Mint 2 and have installed XBMC on top.

My TV supports CEC and I want to use my Samsung Remote Control to control XBMC.

Does the HDMI port on Mintbox 2 support CEC, so I can control XBMC with the Samsung Remote?

MintBox 2 HDMI port doesn't support CEC interface.

@mbirger: That's a big disappointment. Im using XBMC on my Mintbox 2 as Multimedia Center. XBMC and my TV supports CEC, but not the Mintbox, so now I need to by some addon device if I want to use my Samsung remote with my Mintbox 2.

Is the limit in the hardware / firmware, is it something which could be fixed in a future fireware release? I think I saw the new Fit pc's support HDMI-CEC.

The new fit-PC3i has CEC hardware implementation that is absent in MintBox 2. We are working on adding CEC software support to fit-PC3i.
