I believe the cable is unidirectional based on my Google search, as in only USB C to HDMI.MckoolDealin wrote: ↑ Curious if someone could answer this question for me. Can I hook up my ps5 (HDMI end) and plug it into my monitor that has a USB c port. Does that work?
Looking at kvm switches and stuff to try and connect 3 devices to my monitor that has 1x HDMI, display port, USB c. I'm slightly old school and don't understand USB c except for charging devices.

Yeah, but what would provide the power if the other end is HDMI?

Perhaps they're suggesting a usb-c hub with PD charging?

The monitor or TV wouldn't provide power from the HDMI side to the device.
Depending on the device, you may only have a USB-C port (ahem macbooks) or a single HDMI port, so if you want to have a second monitor/screen, your only option is to use the USB-C port for the additional video output.Kazushi wrote: ↑just to add
MOST cables are unidirectional. Though I believe in 2022 there are going to be more HDMI --> USB-C, requires newer chip and likely more expensive. Why not just go HDMI --> DP? much more plentiful and easier to get? albeit more bulky but most monitors support DP these days.

Is that still available? Do you mind sharing link? I just purchased a 4k30hz hub for $27 off Amazon and wouldn't mind paying extra $3 for 60hz.peakingduck wrote: ↑ Perhaps they're suggesting a usb-c hub with PD charging?
I picked up this 4k60hz hub for ~$30 off Ali, works pretty well

4K 30hz is painful, I just can't go back.

I just took a look and it's now the same price as amazon. I purchased it during the 11/11 sale from the ugreen store linked by starchest.

They're rare but there are USB-C to HDMI cables which have a USB-C input port at the HDMI side to connect a PD charger and push power down to the USB-C connector end, such as a laptop. I'm using this one from Choetech:
