Sorry to chime in with a selfish request but does anyone know what might have changed between Chestnut and Evergreen to enable video out or even just USB communication? I just watched Gardiner’s review and saw the working video out and wondered if mine would work as well but no dice. I’ve been following some of the Purism git tickets related to video out but never saw anything that indicated that Chestnut was not supposed to work though obviously I could have missed it. I can’t even plug in USB devices like flash drives and see them in the OS.
Are the new Evergreens going out with software that enables video out while the Chestnut software doesn’t have that yet? I make sure to run updates every few days so I am on the latest now. Or is there a hardware change that was required to make it work? If so, can you point me to a description of the changes. I am pretty handy with a soldering iron so I would be interested to see what changes are needed and if I think I can make them.
I am by no means faulting Purism for USB/video out not working. I opted for the Chestnut with full understanding that some things might not work. I am just hoping to find out if there is anything I can do to get it working.
Again, sorry for being selfish, but seeing the video out working on Gardiner’s L5 made me jealous.
