Available In ATV or Normal Android also found here.

  • Supplied fan using existing VIM-1 lid will catch on the Glan GST chip and there will be a slight bend in lid cover.
    Advised that New casing and Fan will be developed and a new housing for both Vim units…

I just nicked the cover of the Vim1 for now, some washers under corner to lift lid a couple of MM to remove the bend and all good for now and Heatsink from a Pi kit.

As Interesting as it may look, as one needs to work with what you have at hand.

All Mounted and ready to Walk out of here by the looks :grinning:

After finding the missing 4th Leg we are now back to a more Normal Height

Temporary Fan Fix, down to about 32C at idle

So then I was thinking
What if you need to use the GPIO
So we flipped it

And mount Base Plate to finish the job

Also an attempt to run the DTV Software was not 100%
After the Updated Fix,
VTV would crash on startup and can go no further at the present.
All in Good time…
