My first HDMI build

Post by tinkerBOY » Sun Sep 17, 2017 3:38 am

I have completed this build a week ago and forgot to share it here because i've been enjoying playing games with it especially GBA games. The kedei hdmi screen is awesome! It's a 480x320 screen.

I used a short hdmi cable for this build and removed the insulation. Hardest part is the glue on each end of the cable. It's super hard.
Very sharpShow

Thanks! Nothing special here really except for the screen. It's way way better than my composite build. Games look much better. Much sharper and clearer.

oh yeah really clean... at first look, i didn't see the charging port under the audio jack.

Well done. A close look inside would be appreciated when you'll have time to shoot it :D
