well, a unfortunate bump... for some reason, something died. i haven't figured out if it is the screen or the pc, but am getting kind of tired of it.. i've had constant issues with my 669 not getting along with the board. either i need to change input formats to get a input, or it doesn't want to display a picture.
so i think the first option is to install everything in a case.. at the moment, it looks to be a morex 5667 case. the first culprit i suspect is the fact that nothing is inter-connected for grounding considering that i used acrylic for a mounting base, so if any component was relying on the screw holes for a ground, it's not getting it. i'm also worried that the acrylic is creating odd static charges that is 'shocking' parts of the build.. that's all i can come up with to explain all these odd issues i keep having..
