Well with our boards being assembled still under lockdown in the factory I thought I would have a go at building one up. This is just after cleaning up some solder bridges. It now needs a clean and then check out that there are no shorts. Then to blast the firmware on and see if it works.

With a few DIL sockets to make a tower (we like towers) I can test the board out on my 1st H4 which has the ST Monitor socket underneath.

It actually sits perfectly above the shielding. Firmware is in, HDMI is connecting (i.e. seeing some sort of signal) but black screen. Need to do a bit of debugging.

No need for shades of pink @exxos. How about shades of green.

My H4 is starting to look good with all its add-ons. Flashy Clock V6 at the bottom, HDMI Shifter at the top above the original monitor socket. Just need to add the SEC Booster ;)
