But holding everything together and allowing the PCB to 'slotted in' is very awkward. I hav...

Re: DVI / HDMI adaptor

<r>Don't use an adaptor use a cable, HDMI plug to DVI Plug. Using an adaptor will put significant extra strain on the HDMI socket on the RPi!<br/> <br/> e.g. like the one we sell at:<URL url="http://cjemicros.co.uk/micros/.....VI-D-CBL1M">http://cjemicros.co.uk/micros/.....VI-D-CBL1M</URL><br/> <br/...
