V2 Firmware is here!
Pulse-Eight is proud to announce the latest release of libCEC, version 1.6.1 is the culmination of our hard work over the last several months to implement wake-on-usb functionality to the USB-CEC Adapter, with this change, you are now able to wake (and possibly) boot your HTPC from the source menu in your TV. This now allows for the first time a full integration of your HTPC into the HDMI-CEC stack.
Along with this major update to the firmware we have also implemented a raft of new features and bug fixes
- Add support for additional user control codes (Setup Menu, Contents Menu, Favourite Menu)
- Added firmware version in XBMC’s peripherals menu and cec-client
- Respond to <Get Menu Language>
- Option to shutdown the computer when the TV is switched off
- Support more than 4 HDMI ports in a single device in XBMC peripherals menu
- Settings are now stored on the adapter so multiple applications can share the same configuration
- XBMC Crashing when shutting down/suspending and have a CEC Adapter connected
- libCEC was always assuming it was the active source and would respond to offer messages when they were not intended for it
- Setting to not use the TV language was not being followed
To update to v2 firmware, please download the latest firmware version from http://packages.pulse-eight.net/windows/ and install the latest version of XBMC from our website http://packages.pulse-eight.net/
Right now our firmware updating system is only available for Windows and for Linux, we have no plans at this time for a OSX firmware updater, so please transfer your adapter to a Windows PC to perform the update.
For Linux if you have our PPA installed run (sudo apt-get install cec-firmware-upgrade)
We hope you enjoy this new feature as we now move onto our next project, Windows Media Centre support!
