HDMI Switch is now Controllable!

I was recently able to test switch operation using something other than the proprietary app! I used a program called RealTerm, in which I was able to open a com port, read the hex data, and enter the 4 hex bytes I found earlier. Just as I assumed, I was able to toggle the power of the switcher!

If anybody wants to try this themselves, you can simply do it from Realterm like I did, or with an Arduino(a good alternative to those without RS-232 ports on their computers) using this code I put together below, which will toggle the power every 3 seconds.

void setup() 

void loop() 

Stay tuned for more...
