My micro-HDMI -> HDMI adaptor turned up yesterday. From the pictures I'd seen online, I assumed it'd be the "width" of the adaptor that'd be the problem, but it was actually the "depth" of the adaptor that causes problems. As chipmonger said I had to scrape away the rubbery-plastic (using a penknife) from the adaptor to fit the "curve" of the docking port, in order that the adaptor pushes down far enough onto the microHDMI plug to make a proper connection. But it works fine now.chipmonger wrote:You might just have to shave down the end of the adapters that plug into the lapdock due to the curve where the male connectors are. I did this for my micro USB adapter end, and will most likely do it for the replacement micro hdmi adapter.AndrewS wrote:I'm just hoping that http://www.amazon.co.uk/LINDY-Micro-HDM ... 007D1T9RO/ fits okay...
Given the low prices these are being sold for, I'm assuming they're end-of-line clearances, which would mean that oyyy probably won't get them back in stock?tech_monkey wrote:Seems Oyyy.co.uk have sold out of lapdock for the moment.
Yeah, so to be on the safe side you probably want to disconnect the 5V line from going to the Pi's (full-size) USB port, as veryevil's earlier picture shows.Oh and with the correct adapters I reckon you could use a USB Y cable. One thought using this method, I would be injecting 5V into the USB socket on the PI.
