Good luck with that! :-)

Referring back to the original question and the reference to Raspberry Pi...

The latest HDMI has Ethernet capability and the connector is already on the
Pi, so there's a possible (future) solution that would work for all manner
of consumer applications - even ones that don't need video or audio - just
use the network capability of HDMI.
