    I am looking at buying USB 3 A to USB C. I see some have “56K Ohm Pull-up Resistor”. What’s that for (ensure safe supply?) and should I ensure I get a cable with one?

    So, apparently the 56K Ohm resistor is a GOOD thing.

    What are you charging with this cable?

    Here's a list of tested cables and an "approved" or "not approved" for each. This was put together related to Nexus phones: USB-C Cables and Nexus Accessories - Google Sheets

    I would like some info on the necessity or otherwise of having the resistor. I would have thought an iMac would give a good quality power supply via USB. At the moment I just want a cable to add web access to ATV by the published hack.
