Progress on getting the HDMI-out port working?
« on: October 27, 2019, 09:55:28 pm »
I've been told the hdmi port should work, from a hardware perspective. Apparently the firmware simply doesn't support it yet. I was wondering if anyone's working on this.

They never got it to work on the GCW-Zero and that was released in 2013 so I'm not expecting any miracles for the RG-350 since it's based upon the same chipset and firmware.

In that case, the next iteration should remove the HDMI then.

That's a waste of space. I mean if it's working RG350 is definitely better than switch, in terms of docking and getting it portable, specifically for retro games that is.

Hi.

I have a question, about the audio video exit (in the Jack conector) it works?

That's not entirely accurate.

So is that the HDMI code from the Neo Geo X thing senquack was talking about ?
Other than some scaling issues (which could be fixed easily), looks like it works fine.

Do you know where's the old HDMI out branch ? It seems that they still haven't worked on it upstream.

No, it is completely unrelated. HDMI out was a necessity for the PAX Prime booth in 2013. It's not guaranteed to work (not compatible with certain displays) and I am not aware of a public release.

Back then it was just a proof-of-concept that could have never made it upstream. That was before the DRM/KMS era.
