Hey all, so I said something about this during the whole adapter/dongle debate, but now I’m looking for actual answers.
My idea of what I want is the adapter/dongle/whatever described in the title: USB-C female to HDMI male.
I want to plug in to TVs at apartments, hotels, etc, and I don’t want to carry a dedicated long cable to do that. I’ve already got USB-C cables (and the more peripherals/tech that adapts that the more I can slim down what I’m actually carrying). I’d like the cables I already have to be able to provide the length of the connection, and to be able to use them for other things.
I’ve been doing a periodic search for this ever since the decision was being made last year. Still nothing.
You don’t have to ELI5 me, I just never researched the specifics of cable interconnectivity vs video display controllers. Is this possible? Is it that no one really wants this, or that this isn’t how the technology works? I do know there are some differences between the cables used for USB-PD vs data transfer, and that I might need a special cable anyway? But once again, I’m not super familiar with the specs behind all that.
Or if you’ve got any other good ideas, I’d love to hear them.
Thanks for your time.
NB: I know that was a long description, I’m just trying to cut down on the inevitable crap like “who cares? just buy an HDMI cable; they’re light”. This is obviously an exploration of best-case scenarios.
