CEC_ADAP_G_CAPS - Query device capabilities
.. c:function:: int ioctl( int fd, CEC_ADAP_G_CAPS, struct cec_caps *argp )
File descriptor returned by :c:func:`open() <cec-open>`.
All cec devices must support :ref:`ioctl CEC_ADAP_G_CAPS <CEC_ADAP_G_CAPS>`. To query
device information, applications call the ioctl with a pointer to a
struct :c:type:`cec_caps`. The driver fills the structure and
returns the information to the application. The ioctl never fails.

- Userspace has to configure the physical address by calling
this capability isn't set, then setting the physical address is
handled by the kernel whenever the EDID is set (for an HDMI
receiver) or read (for an HDMI transmitter).
- 0x00000002
- Userspace has to configure the logical addresses by calling
this capability isn't set, then the kernel will have configured
- 0x00000004
- Userspace can transmit CEC messages by calling
:ref:`ioctl CEC_TRANSMIT <CEC_TRANSMIT>`. This implies that
userspace can be a follower as well, since being able to transmit
messages is a prerequisite of becoming a follower. If this
capability isn't set, then the kernel will handle all CEC
transmits and process all CEC messages it receives.
- 0x00000008
- Userspace can use the passthrough mode by calling
:ref:`ioctl CEC_S_MODE <CEC_S_MODE>`.

- 0x00000010
- This adapter supports the remote control protocol.
- 0x00000020
- The CEC hardware can monitor all messages, not just directed and
broadcast messages.
- 0x00000040
- The CEC hardware is only active if the HDMI Hotplug Detect pin is
high. This makes it impossible to use CEC to wake up displays that
set the HPD pin low when in standby mode, but keep the CEC bus
- 0x00000080
- The CEC hardware can monitor CEC pin changes from low to high voltage
and vice versa. When in pin monitoring mode the application will
receive ``CEC_EVENT_PIN_CEC_LOW`` and ``CEC_EVENT_PIN_CEC_HIGH`` events.
Return Value
On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the ``errno`` variable is set
appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the
:ref:`Generic Error Codes <gen-errors>` chapter.
