    I emailed Pulse-Eight but it seems they don't answer emails?

    I have a HDMI switcher. My HDMI cable from my grahics card goes to the switcher and then the switcher has one HDMI output going to my TV HDMI input.



    How does this setup work in regards to CEC? Will the switcher be compatible?

    This is the switcher that I have; http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0049SCB2Y?ref_=cm_cr-mr-title

    If this switcher would not be compatible, any suggestions?

    It should be. If not you can still get it to work by putting your CEC module between the TV and the switch rather than between the switch and the PC.

    It wouldn't be a case of needing 2x CEC modules? One at the PC and one at the switcher?

    Please don't try that.
    Try putting it between the switch and the PC first. This way the PC should not get CEC noise when the switch is pointing to another device.
