Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) is a feature of HDMI which allows multiple devices connected by HDMI to function using a single remote control.

Manufacturers use different names for CEC, some examples of which are shown here:

• Anynet+ (Samsung)
• Aquos Link (Sharp)
• BRAVIA Link, BRAVIA Sync, Control for HDMI (Sony)
• CE-Link, Regza Link (Toshiba)
• E-link (AOC)
• EasyLink (Philips)
• Fun-Link (Funai, Sylvania, Emerson,Magnavox, Philips)
• HDMI-CEC (Hitachi)
• INlink (Insignia)
• Kuro Link (Pioneer)
• NetCommand for HDMI (Mitsubishi)
• RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) (Onkyo)
• RuncoLink (Runco International)
• SimpLink (LG)
• T-Link (ITT)
• VIERA Link, HDAVI Control, EZ-Sync (Panasonic)

Unfortunately there are situations where the CEC communication protocol does not work as intended so CEC needs to be disabled.

The SlimHDMI Male-Female lead with CEC Disabled can help in situations where CEC causes issues. It does this by having no connection on pin 13 of the HDMI cable. Of the 19 pins in an HDMI cable, the other 18 remain connected.

All the usual technical specifications found on our SlimHDMI cables remain unchanged:

Ultra-flexible slim HDMI cable with miniature connector
Perfect for discrete, hidden or wall mount installations
Gold plated connectors for optimum AV performance
Double shielded to eliminate electromagnetic interference
Supports all resolutions including 4K Ultra HD
Compatible with 2D and 3D.

Features that rely on CEC such as Audio Return Channel (ARC) may not function when using this adapter lead.
