Please direct me to the appropriate location if this is not the place for troubleshooting help.

I've found that getting started guides are for previous versions of pcDuino, not the 8.  The guide here:  http://learn.linkspr...ges-to-pcduino/ is a good example.  I've followed all the steps and things seem to work up to the point that boot information should appear on the monitor.  I used phoenixCard software to burn the linux kernel (found here - http://www.pcduino.c...mages-pcduino8/) to micro-sd card, then power pcDuino8 on with sd card inserted.  LED2 blinks for about 20 seconds.  I remove sd card and power-cycle the device and then I see... nothing.  No signal is read from the pcDuino (through HDMI).  Wireless keyboard/mouse are plugged into single usb port.  Power is through 5V 1.5A mini-USB cell phone charger.  Any ideas why I don't see anything or what's going on?  Thanks!

Arches (pcDuino8) needs 5V/4A power supply.  A tested one is here: http://store.cutedig...uino8-5v-dc-4a/

Hi - got the 5V 4A power supply suggested in the previous post - still no HDMI output.  Monitor reads "no signal".  Any ideas? What information do I need to provide?

Are you using it with a TV or a monitor?
