Kodi won't turn on using CEC

  • I am using my sony remote to remote rasp. kodi. I have Hdmi cec and usb with separate power supply. Now when turn on tv raspberry pi won't turn on. I need to unplug it and plug again.
    Last week I used power supply from tv using usb. That worked great.


    Is there a way to make it work?

  • Raspberry Pi doesn't support poweroff/wakeup. You have to have it running all the time.


    You can disable it powering off in the cec peripheral menu.

  • You are wrong. It worked to turn it on and off using sony remote. When tv went ON also pi went ON. BUt then I had pi connected with usb to tv. Now I have separate power supply.
    In that case I need to buy a longer usb and connect it back to tv.

    I guess what you were doing there was turning the tv off, which cut power to the usb port. About the worst way to turn a pi on and off that doesn't involve using a hammer.
