    Hi,

    Since my Samsung LCD seems to be unrepairable (digital-out audio fault), I'm thinking about swapping it for another 32" LCD. However, the thing I like about it is the Anynet system, which communicates with my Samsung DVD player. From what I can gather, Anynet is basically Samsung's implementation of HDMI-CEC, so I was hoping it may work with other brands that support HDMI-CEC.

    My question is - is there a definitive list anywhere of TVs that support HDMI-CEC?

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    also the newer panasonic's have viera link which is their implementation of HDMI-CEC.

    interoperability between these different implementations should not be an issue.. but in reality that could be another story!

    Thanks..

    So we have 'Bravia Theatre Sync' and 'Viera Link', which are at least implementations of HDMI-CEC. Testing interopability could be interesting!

    Are there any others?

    Now all I need to do is find a TV with roughly the same dimensions (without stand) to fit into the nicely designed shelving system I created to house a Samsung LE32R87BDX... I don't suppose anyone actually keeps a chart of specs comparing different TV's standard dimensions/features/etc? If not, I think I might have a go at creating something.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Yes, that does indeed look like the TV I want! I'm not sure if it supports HDMI-CEC though.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    According to the Spec's the new Toshiba XF and Z (and probably ZF) series have HDMI-CEC, as does their latest Qosimo HD-DVD laptop.
