Alright so a little vague title but here it goes.
I'm interested in powering some 5v LED strips with an HDMI cable. I have no idea if this is even possible, I'm lacking knowledge in electronics.
My goal is to essentially have some LED lighting turn on when a video game console is turned on and the HDMI signal is fed to the display, and have the power for the LED strip piggyback off the HDMI connection.
Again I have no idea if this is possible, or if it is if it would create a lag in the signal from the HDMI.
Anyone aware of any products like this? or attempted to create this?
The closest I could find was a HDMI female to male with a USB Male lead, but have no idea if that could even provide the power or interrupt the HDMI signal.
Would this be possible to engineer into such a small connector? Is this beyond what the HDMI can provide?
A for sure system I know that can provide what I want is in using an advanced power strip but I was looking for something not so bulky.
