Theoretically, yes, if both the TV and receiver support CEC. It's also 
possible that you may have to connect the CEC adapter between the 
receiver and the TV (instead of the computer and the receiver).

I seem to recall that some video cards support CEC commands, without 
using a special adapter. Having upgraded to a newish video card a while 
back, I'm going to look into this further before I buy the adapter.
