COLIN WONFOR: Q/A. 5v power from HDMI?

Colin Wonfor

Q: Dear Colin, It is my understanding that pin 18 is a 5v supply? If this is correct, what would I need in order to use a spare HDMI port to power a usb cooling fan for my receiver? Thank you in advance. Chris

A: Sorry, but I can't find a spec on the current which would be a limiting factor. This is something I would never deal with but I suggest you visit this page.
