I have tried to get the videoOut module working with both the Raptor and Spider main board. I have had the TE35 & T43 working on both, and even have the VM800 FTDI display working with WPF. But I can not get the videoOut module working. I am using the 4.3.6 version of the .NET Gadgeteer. I use the simple example app that just sets the display configuration to vga800x600. After the proper first time reset The next boot the configuration call failes with the following error: “VideoOut ERROR : Setting the display configuration failed.”. I also added some debug lines after, as follows:
VideoOut ERROR : Setting the display configuration failed.
Model: Video Out
so it seems that that even with the error, the debug output looks good, but There is never any display out. I have even tried configuring the videoOut model for RCA and changing the code to configure it for RCA.
Move the X plug to a different socket. I’ve had the same problem. I can remember off the top off my head the right one to use but swap it around a couple of places and you’ll find it. It can use a Y socket too even though its not labeled that way.
Thanks for the try Skewworks, tried every other x and y on the board with the same bad results. So, just to be clear you suggested changing the physical port to another X or Y, and you also meant to also change the configured port number too, right? Regardless, this is what I did. Nothing worked. I wonder how that would be a solution, because it defiantly talking to the videoOut properly. If you do not have this connected properly it gives you a completely different error.
Again, thanks for the try. Well, if I can not get it working I am going to try and return it. I wonder how fun that will be, since that will not even respond here.
And just to be clear. When you run this the first time after being configured differently, you do get the proper reset and you have to reattach the debugger. But after that I always get the FAILED: message from the videoOut configuration attempt.
