OK, WTF? I just discovered that an HDMI cable connected to a USB-C port on my computer can power the tiny Lilliput HDMI monitor that normally needs/has a power adapter. WTF? How is it powering it over HDMI? *looks around the room in fear*

@aral This is a wonderful monitor, definitely! 50mA is enough, well, maybe for a seven-segment indicator🙂

@yrabbit @aral don't forget that the host side connector is USB, maybe HDMI has an extension to accept power in this setup
