Overlay Vera messages on your TV via HDMI
« on: September 08, 2017, 06:36:49 pm »
I've just been working on some vera code that will write a message into the notification/message window.

Now that's all well and good, but it reminded me of a need/interest I've had for a while which was to find something that could overlay those sorts of little messages on my homevTV  e.g show up in the bottom right hand side.

The problem with that is you will need something that sits inbetween your e.g cable box/DVD player  and your target TV that manages the overlay.

I've found a product online https://www.adafruit.com/product/609 and I was wondering if anyone was using it ?

You can send a message to the Samsung TVs  using a PNP protocol.
I did it a long time ago ... I forgot the details.
