This could probably be more of a generic hardware question but I plan to use an RPi 4.

Does the RPi 4 with usb C have the possibility of receiving HDMI input.

So essentially I want to use the RPi 4 as a capture card without any additional hardware.

Is this IN THEORY possible?

  • i could be wrong, but it appears that RPi4 has no HDMI input capability

The Pi4 DOES NOT HAVE a USB-C port.

It uses a USB-C connector for power.

In contrast to earlier Pi models the power power port does have data lines but only USB2 OTG is supported.
