For my first ible I just wanted to give everyone a quick tutorial on how to use the HDMI-CEC protocol to control your Pi with your Tv's remote control.
This is very useful because is saves you from having to buy a remote just for your Pi and also leaves you with an open usb that you would have needed for your wireless keyboard and mouse.
Step 1: Do You Have CEC?
Every manufacturer has a different trade name for CEC,
Samsung - Anynet+
Sony - BRAVIA Link or BRAVIA Sync
Sharp - Aquos Link
Hitachi - HDMI-CECAOC - E-link
Pioneer - Kuro Link
Toshiba - Regza Link or CE-Link
LG - SimpLink
Panasonic - VIERA Link or HDAVI Control or EZ-Sync
Philips - EasyLink
If your TV has a button, logo, or menu with one of these names or similar, congratulations you have CEC!
