My new LG TV has only three HDMI ports. This would be okay if Simplink sent key presses through my receiver.

Is there a reason that Simplink cannot control devices using CEC (Simplink) through a receiver?

I had no problem with two other TV brands (which I won't mention here) sending keys through the receiver over CEC.

Oh, power does make it through just no other keys from the remove.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is this a WebOS problem? Will WebOS 3.0 fix this?

Hi Gary,

I have as well the same issue.
I own a LG55UF860 for few days and can't set it up correctly.
I have a Denon AVR, HDMI monitor1 ARC output connected to TV HDMI2-ARC.
A Raspberry Pi2 running Kodi connected to AVR HDMI5 (Media player).
From the TV remote, I can control directly AVR volume, mute, programs and through the virtual (on screen) remote, AVR input.

In the connect I can see Home Theatre and Home Theater (Kodi) but no control at all.
In All Inputs: Home Theatre I have
- DENON, AVR-2313, Unknown
- SIMPLINK Supported
- Universal Control Configured for AVR-2313

However I can't control anything to RPi/Kodi.

BTW, is it possible to SSH LG TV?

So, I'll try to find out and let you know in case.

Hi Gary,

We are both with the same issue.
I carry on with the debug. You can have a look in the Kodi forum here
and here

I asked few questions to LG support regarding my TV 55UF860V:
- It is not possible to SSH the TV for user. In fact they don't want to provide the user and password. They say it will void the warranty.
- The TV can't be used as Ethernet bridge. However it has SoftAP capacity.
- The TV has a IR receiver but is locked because domestic device. Could you confirm? I have to test that.
- It is not possible to pair a Bluetooth keyboard, only USB wire/wireless keyboard can be used

Could you let me know what are your devices references, we can share experiences.

Kind regards,
