Answer: 
SIMPLINK allows you to control and play other AV devices connected with HDMI cable without additional cables and settings. This TV may work with devices with HDMI-CEC support, but only devices with the SimpLink logo are fully supported. In order to use the SimpLink feature, the TV and the BluRay player must both have the SimpLink feature available. Turn on the feature in the menu of both devices. Once this is done, and the two devices are connected using the HDMI cable, then the remote control of one device will be able to control limited features on the other device.
