Configure HDMI-CEC on our connected device
In Android TV-Box we usually have a menu to activate this option and configure different control options, we will have to try different combinations until they fit with our TV.

  • Android TV-Box: Settings> HDMI> Enable HDMI-CEC.
  • mini PC: Only some graphics cards are ready, there is also specific hardware and usually few options.
  • AV receiver: It is necessary to activate HDMI-CEC to control the volume and it is recommended to use HDMI-ARC connection.


On Station M1, P1, M2, P2 AndroidTV firmwares, HDMI CEC is enabled by default.
You only have to enable it in your tv's settings then you can use your tv remote to control the device or your AVR receiver's remote to control the volume.
