I have followed the instructions here (http://learn.linkspr...r-pcduino8-uno/) but cannot boot my pcduino8.  Nothing shows up on screen.  What am I doing wrong?

 

If it helps, LED 3,4,5,6, and 7 are on and steady.  The ethernet is flashing green and amber LEDs in a simple, repeating pattern.

The LED6 and LED7 are on , it means the system has been login the desktop,   so seemly the system is OK.

 

How do you power your pcDuino8 Uno,  5V/2A DC power?

and how do you connect the screen using HDMI cable?

This is a well known issue that needs just a few fixes. Compare with https://github.com/B...b99bbdb81823b2f

 

If the Linksprite folks would've published their BSP sources this could've been fixed long ago. But they still play the GPL violator game and moronically refuse to publish the sources they got from Allwinner.
