Absolutely agree with this. For the few components that I have that came with CEC, it was turned it off as soon as they came out of their boxes. CEC causes more problems than it's worth.

CEC
Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) is an HDMI feature designed to allow the user to command and control up-to 15 CEC-enabled devices, that are connected through HDMI by using only one of their remote controls (for example by controlling a television set, set-top box, and DVD player using only the remote control of the TV). CEC also allows for individual CEC-enabled devices to command and control each other without user intervention.

That's the theory. In practice, it's a mess and you're better off with a universal remote to manage and control your devices.

I usually turn it off on my devices, but it makes perfect sense with Airplay.


Chromecast users can start playing content, and the receiver turns on and switches to the correct input automatically. With iOS devices and voice control, Apple is in every other way a company that seems to want you to lose the remote; CEC is a no-brainer for streaming.
