[vdr] HDMI CEC support in VDR with Pulse Eight Adapter

Hi,

Has anyone had any experience of working with the Pulse Eight USB to
HDMI CEC adapter [1] with controlling VDR when using a graphics card
or other non-CEC device as an output?

It seems that support for this has been implemented within Myth TV and
XBMC, but I haven't seen anything on VDR.

It would be very useful to be able to control VDR from your TV handset
and also be able to power on / off VDR with all other HDMI CEC
devices.

I wondered if anyone has started work on a CEC VDR PLUGIN or whether
it should be implemented within the core itself, alongside LIRC and
KBD?

If not, I might look at trying to hack up a plugin if I get some time.

Thanks,

Morfsta
