Hello,

 

I have an OveroFE on a Tobi board. This = configuration is for testing purposes and is running the OS from my company’s = device. The device doesn’t have a display so the OS is not configured to = use one.

 

My question is: What do I need to do to add = support for a 1280x1024 display through the Tobi’s HDMI = port?

 

I am a mechanical engineer with moderate = electronics and software skills so talk to me like I am 5 years old. = :)

 

Thanks in = advance.
