HDMI CEC and the Hopper 3


I'm looking into switching from a mini-PC (windows 7 MCE) with a HDHomerun Prime and Cable Card to a Dish Hopper 3 setup. Everything has been, and will be, ran to a closet in an adjacent room where I have relied on HDMI-CEC to do the communicating I have found that using an HDMI-CEC adapter on PC is just too unreliable; so much so that my wife won't even turn on the TV. The whole point was to make the thing more friendly for anyone that would be using the TV. It was almost there, just not quite!

Anyways- I was hoping you guys could answer the following questions.

1. Does the Hopper 3 have HDMI-CEC? Can it be controlled by a TV through an AVR unit?

2. If #1 is yes, are the number of commands limited by the the source's (TV) remote?

Basically, I need to be able to do three things without line of sight

1. Switch between AVR inputs
2. Fully control the hopper3 without line of sight?
3. Use the remote to power down the TV, AVR and the Hopper (optional).

Thanks for any input.

Yes it does all of those.

That's how I have mine setup.

When I press the SAT button it switched the TV to the correct HDMI input. The remote is UHF so no line of site needed. And you can program it for your AVR too.
