I've installed XBMC on my Raspberry Pi, which is connected to my Samsung SmartTV via HDMI cable.
Everything worked as expected, the XBMC has been installed and showed up on my TV screen.
The strange thing is, that I can control my Raspberry Pi (the XBMC software) with my TV remote of my SmartTV! How is this possible? The communication channel between the Raspberry Pi and the SmartTV is the HDMI cable.
Setup: I use the Raspberry Pi B+ model and Samsung UE40F6500 SmartTV, both are connected to the internet via RJ45 cable.
XBMC version: 13.2 “Gotham”
