Inside the Pulse-Eight HDMI CEC Injector To make a long store short, Google recently pushed a few updates to my TV that made it slow as all hell and frustratingly unusable. I finally got fed up with the laggy UI and dug out an old mini PC and installed LibreELEC on it. Everything worked perfectly except for the lack of CEC support on the mini PC. This is a common enough problem that there’s a few different devices out there that can add CEC support to a device that doesn’t have it.
ESPHome for Sonoff T5 family of Switches It’s hard to beat Sonoff switches when it comes to well-made, affordable, Home Assistant compatible switches. Ever since they announced the T5 series, I’ve been patiently waiting for the US variant to become available so I could replace my M5 switches with T5 switches. Don’t get me wrong, the M5 switches are great… but not perfect. The T5 switches improve on the M5 limitations with some new and novel hardware features.
