Display adapter failing? Ghosting, jailbars etc.

Post by mtarallo » Thu Sep 27, 2018 12:35 pm

Hello - look I have not been too pleased with what has been going on with my device (basically read everyone one else's negative experience and mine are similar), but I accepted it an moved on. HOWEVER, I have been using it as a mini-pc - surfing the web, transferring files etc - it fits great in an area where space is minimal - so far so good UNTIL - i turn it on and my screen starts to flicker and you can see wavy lines and the display is not as clear as it once was. I think the display adapter is failing. I tried this with 2 RGB monitors and 2 TVs with HDMI - same thing more or less. Anyone else experiencing this or a similar issue with the display? It is noticeable on a white background - where you also see ghosting.

I did send a note to the shipping email address.

Thanks

Have you tried a different HDMI cable and updated your graphics driver?

Yes - I tried all that - same thing. Don't worry about it, I returned it - got my money back - sorry guys this thing did not work for me. I have a ton of respect for all of you dedicated to getting this thing working - tweaking, changing front ends etc. BUT at the end of the day - that is not how this was marketed to any of us. If it was I would have never have backed it. I already had a PC and a Pi cab that can do most if not all of it. Again - respect all around - but this thing did not live up to expectations. Console to Rule them all? Meh not really.

Regards,
Mike

I understand where you are coming from. I'm sorry about your experience. Others as well as myself appreciate the respect.

Take care Mike
