Raspberry Pi: How To Play All Media Files In A Folder Using TV Remote Control?

Question: Can I use the TV remote control to get XBMC play all media files in the folder?

Answer: If your TV supports HDMI CEC function, and the Raspberry Pi is running OpenELEC, then it is likely possible:

As shown in the video, my Sony TV remote control allows me to navigate the file system, select the folder (highlight it) and click the PLAY button related to BRAVIA Sync (the Sony trade name for HDMI CEC) – XBMC is then start playing all supported music files inside the folder.

Not only that, it allows me jump to next track too :)
