How do I enable/use CEC/ARC on the Enclave Audio CineHome HD?

Customer Service posted this on Apr 16, 2016


The ARC port on your Smart Center is the “Output” port. This should be connected to the ARC port of your television. Please make sure that ARC is enabled within your television's settings, as some TV’s specifically require the user to manually enable ARC.

Once that is done, follow the steps below:

1. Using your enclave remote or keypad on the Smart Center, go to: menu > CEC > then select "CEC + ARC Enabled”
2. Once you have done this, power cycle the Smart Center by turning the power off and then turning it back on.
3. Once the system is back on, your input menu should show “AUX (ARC)” as an available input option. Select it as it is the input necessary for ARC use.

ARC is now enabled on your system and should be functioning as expected.


1. While CEC is only available for HDMI based inputs, using your Enclave remote or keypad on the Smart Center, go to: menu > CEC > then select either "CEC enabled" or "CEC + ARC Enabled”. Now power cycle your Smart Center by turning it off, and then back on again.

2. Turn on CEC on your connecting device. CEC can be named many things based on device manufacturer. Below is a table of some of them:

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), INlink (Insignia), 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).

3. Once enabled on both the Smart Center and your device, communication should occur.

Features such as using your TV remote to control Enclave Audio Volume,  Input, etc. as well as simultaneous power down or power up, auto input select, etc are all features that CEC can support, depending on each manufacturers implementation.
