    I came across this piece on the PS4 supposedly lacking support for remote controls (IR) but having remote control support through HDMI. Basically you can use your regular TV remote.

    How to activate CEC PS4:
    There's two things you need to do essentially.
    1) Navigate your PS4 to [System] > [Enable HDMI Device Link] in the settings.
    2) Locate the settings for your spesific brand (listed below) on your television.


    Trademarks for CEC:
    Anynet+ (Samsung),
    Aquos Link (Sharp),
    BRAVIA Link and BRAVIA Sync (Sony),
    HDMI-CEC (Hitachi),
    E-link (AOC), Kuro Link (Pioneer),
    CE-Link and Regza Link (Toshiba),
    RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) (Onkyo),
    RuncoLink (Runco International),
    SimpLink (LG),
    T-Link (ITT),
    HDAVI Control, EZ-Sync, VIERA Link (Panasonic),
    EasyLink (Philips),
    NetCommand for HDMI (Mitsubishi).

    Edit
    : So I guess I got ARC mistakenly mixed up in this. Any mods reads this please feel free to remove it from the title

    I think you have to check off something in your settings. Sorry I'm not able to investigate it myself yet :P

    Edit: From Wikipedia:

    Trade names for CEC are:
    Anynet+ (Samsung), Aquos Link (Sharp), BRAVIA Link and BRAVIA Sync (Sony), HDMI-CEC (Hitachi), E-link (AOC), Kuro Link (Pioneer), CE-Link and Regza Link (Toshiba), RIHD (Remote Interactive over HDMI) (Onkyo), RuncoLink (Runco International), SimpLink (LG), T-Link (ITT), HDAVI Control, EZ-Sync, VIERA Link (Panasonic), EasyLink (Philips), and NetCommand for HDMI (Mitsubishi).

    Bravia Link is what I was thinking of. Wasn't that on the PS3 as well? (that's where I think I noticed it at first as really wanted to try it yet I still don't have a TV with this capability)

    Anyone tried this with an LG's simplink?

    Perhaps it would be a good idea if people could test their device and list their model so we can build a compatibility list.

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    Knot: Your TV should have something under it's options/settings. Google your brand name and "CEC" (or the respective trademark I posted earlier) if you have trouble finding it. Older tv's might not support the feature.

    Vic: Not sure how manageable that would be. I'll at least put the trademark list up in the OP.

    So I tried this out last night with my PS3. Seems the support has been removed (as you're supposed to see an option under system settings on the PS3). There's also been reports of spoty support for this feature.

    If any of you should have any luck with getting CEC to work the PS4 feel free to share it here.

    I am going to test my samsung once I'm home which for sure has CEC enabled and supports it. I'm curious though how could Sony have removed it there haven't been any firmware updates since this thread? Anybody find it still works?

    Given the lack of any announcement of a PS4 ht remote, this could be useful...

    I guess i'll set up my Harmony to remote control the ps4 as a panasonic tv or panasonic bluray player... interesting.

    Harmony mentioned they would need an update and possibly a patch from Sony for PS4, so PS4 CEC support would indeed be good.

    You have to enable it on both your tv and PS4 actually.
    On your ps$ you need to go to

    Settings>System and check "enable HDMI device link"

    Then enable the CEC setting on your TV.
    That will be different for each brand of TV.

    I wonder how I would set it up as an activity in my Harmony remote though. When selecting a "gaming" activity it gives me the option to choose what I control the volume with and what HDMI setting I need to be on but nothing about navigation/changing channels.

    Best part about this tech is that you can use the WiiU gamepad to control the Ps4 via the TV.

    I tried Simplink with my LG tonight. It navigates fine using the remote's directional pad while in the ps4 interface, not so well in all the apps. Netflix, Vudu and Hulu didn't seem to like the television's remote, but Amazon Instant Video liked it fine. I just couldn't navigate back from Amazon to the ps4 interface, as the LG remote doesn't have a PS button. It's cool, but probably needs more support from the app developers.

    For reference, my tv is a 2012 LG smart tv.

    i've been using this since the PS3. Love it! I have a sony bravia LED tv. also the feature that i really really love is the tv turning on after turning on the playstation4. if i have everything off and i just push the PS button on the controller, the tv will turn on and change it to the PS4 input. same thing when i turn the PS4 off. the tv will turn off
