Audio question though: the 3.5mm jack should "just work" for audio out, right? I've tried on two STs and I get nothing (I've twiddled the knob plenty)
Yes, it should. They're designed to be used with a 3.5mm A/V plug. It should always work with "normal" headphones, can't say anything about Android/iPhone headsets but they will most probably not work since the ring layout is probably different from this design.

That's what I thought. I tried two sets of headphones, one over-ears with only L/R/GND, then some in-ears with a fourth pole for the inline mic. Nada, but I'll poke it again tomorrow.

If you can't get it to work, hit me up either on facebook (messenger) or drop me a PM here, I'll send you a new one if that's the case.

That's more than generous! I'll shoot you a PM here.

Hi
I wonder if it is posible to add a long cable with an external button (like a reset button) to allow switching resolution from the front of the keyboard.
Is there any free pins to add such cable/button ?
Or is there another model with this option ?

There is no other model, you would have to remove the switch and solder the cables yourself to a new switch. This is of course done entirely at your own risk.

Well.... There IS the external button header.. :)

I’d say it’s exactly for this. :

Ah, I wondered what the 6 holes under the pot were for... ;)

There’s a two pin header under the button on v1.2 and above. Exxos is selling v1.4, which includes the possibility to use hsync instead for detecting switches.
