is cec-client showing keypresses, when you start it the first time after starting your tv? (i assume xbmc is not running)

no, it is not.

but it was working a few days back (cec-client only, not xbmc). then i recompiled libcec and xbmc and it stopped working :)

There was a push some days ago on wolfgars repository.
Did you already checked that out?

ok, then you should have the latest libcec-imx6 package installed.

I have the same problem but I cant solve it :/

after the update to the latest xbmc version of stephan, HDMi CEC isnt working anymore.

I got the same error messages, applied the udev rules and the usermod thing.
now there are no more error messages in xbmc.log but HDMI-cec isnt working -.-

what could be the problem?
I can remote my TV from cec-client but I cant remote XBMC with my TV.

I managed to program a Flirc for my LG Magic Remote to control Kodi (GeexBox) on my wandboard with the same remote. I detailed it here:

This avoids the use of CEC entirely.

But, I'm curious what are the advantages of using CEC and is it worth the trouble?
