    So I have my lg gtv 3 hooked up with a Chromecast, but I am not able to get the Chromecast to change the TV input or turn the TV on.

    Do we not have that capability? Any help majorly appreciated.

    I don't have one but I have read the LG models do not have HDMI-CEC. I do use an LG plasma, dumb variety, without HDMI-CEC but Chromecast is running through an AVR which does have HDMI-CEC and it switches to the Chromecast HDMI input, the LG HDTV just stays on HDMI 1 all of the time.

    Edit: Maybe your LG does have HDMI-CEC, go into menu settings and look for the option.

    each manufacturer has their own name for HDMI-cec. LG usually calls it SimpLink and do not see it anywhere in the GTV. i would venture to assume that it doe snot support HDMI-CEC. didnt think people really used that...cool.
