Re: V3 screen issues. How to fix them!

The continuity test is huge! That cannot be stressed enough. My pi was soldered to the board perfectly in my opinion, but the continuity test proved otherwise. Always do the continuity test!

Re: Securing Kite's USB/HDMI Board - Recommendations?

Yes it will be okay like that. The HoolyHoo bracket will push it down and sandwich the board between the two pieces of the shell. I built three so far using kites circuit sword and have not had a problem. Personally, I use epoxy to secure the screen in place. Be careful not to build it up too much a...

Re: Kite's Circuit Sword - Kodi Navigation

You raise a good point. Do you already have kodi installed and function but just need the controller set up for the kodi navigation?

Re: Kite's Circuit Sword - Kodi Navigation

I can't recall anyone posting about actually doing this. In theory it sounds great and I'm sure iys possible somehow, but it's kinda like how NASA spent millions developing a pen that would write in space and then the Russians just used a pencil.... it may not be worth the time and effort :?

Re: Securing Kite's USB/HDMI Board - Recommendations?

That top screw should be sufficient, provided you have the correct screen bracket or installed the right screw post correctly. Once closed and tightened, the shell will hold the top of that PCB just fine. If you are still having troubles, please include some photos. That will make it easier for any ...

Re: Returning to the forums from a short break, I have something to say about a locked thread.

thanks fr the critism Don't take it personally, dude. It's just that a lot of the topics you've started are redundant and some would be more suited for the discord chats. Your enthusiasm is a good thing, but some self-vetting would be appreciated. Please don't be shy about asking important question...
