Macbook Pro Target Machine

By Michael @michaelguild13

    I've connected the TinyPilot usb C data to the Macbook usb C. And, I've done the same for the HDMI via a macbook dongle.

    Within TInyPilot, I am able to view the Target Macbook pro, but no keyboard or mouse data seems to make it to the target machine from TinyPilot.

    Am I connected wrong?

            @michael I am unable to debug. I did turn on the accessible keyboard viewer to double check. And it seems it's not getting anything.
            Can you please help? I specifically purchased the Voyager 2 in hopes of being able to remote into my macbook pro 2019 ( intel Monterey)

                Got it to work. TL:DR I am a fool and didn't think to use the USB-A to USB-C cable to connect to the dongle. I assumed a USB-C to USB-C from the tinypilot to a macbook pro would be fine.

                What I had to do was the following :
                Macbook pro -> dongle (apple's standard dongle) -> hdmi & usb-a -> tinypilot hdmi & usb-c
