Just a heads up guys, I plugged in my C64 mini into my Sony TV and had lots of fun playing the classics, however later on in the day, my roku 3 and Raspberry Pi running Kodi refused to accept CEC controls on the TV, eg volume control and Port switching, I unplugged the HDMI from the C64 mini and CEC control returned, might be worth looking into by C64's hardware guys..

startreksteve I got the same issue on my Samsung TV (UE60KS7005UXXE), I have not been able to get the CEC for controlling my reciever back working.
Unplugging has not helped, I did a factory reset of the reciever and TV and it still did not work, I need to test to unplug and reset them again and see if I can get it up and running.

My Roku 3 seemed to turn it on when I re-enabled CEC in its settings, can you borrow a Roku to do it?
I can confirm that on an LG OLED, latest model (don't ask). C64 Mini, even when turned off, does not only block CEC to any other device (Fire TV, Soundbar), it also makes the TV crash occasionally when enumerating the list of Inputs. Only unplugging the HDMI cable makes this go away. Very annoying.
Got a Problem with a Sony Bravia Android TV and HDMI too...
As long as C64 mini is on everything works fine.
When the C64 mini iss powered off the ARC Connection with Soundbase and TV doesnt work anymore. After unplugging HDMI everything works fine again and Soundbase and TV get connected again.
This happened to me also with a Sony x900E TV. No ARC to soundbar from TV and no CEC control to a Nvidia Shield using TV remote. Unplugged all HDMI cables and reset everything. Plugged in the soundbar HDMI to ARC port on the TV by itself and sound to the soundbar came back.
synchromesh: Anyone know why thec64.com is down ?

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D
