My personal discovery of no video upon first booting my Pine A64
Hey all... I just thought I'd toss this out there in the hopes that it saves someone the frustrations that I went through.
I've searched and found more than a few threads about people wondering if their boards were dead when they first get them.
Symptom: Plug in an LCD, either HDMI or DVI/Adapter, and when you plug the power in, the red LED comes on, but there's NO life
to the screen at all. I first attempted an Android image, then a Debian. Neither made any difference.
I was using an Acer 22" LCD monitor, Model X223Wbd. It's Max Resolution is 1680x1050.

I'd come across a few posts about the software for the Pine A64 not being quite up to snuff yet on "video detection" for lack of a better term.
My primary home computer is an Asus Gaming Laptop, and I didn't have a full HD 1080p monitor lying around, BUT, I do have an Epson full HD Projector.
After running out of options, I plugged the Pine A64 into my Projector, and Bingo! That was the issue. It fired right up and within less than 30 seconds, I was
looking at the Debian Login screen. As I type this, I'm about to change the resolution on the Pine to 1680x1050, shut it down and then see if it'll fire up
on the Acer now.

Will post back either way.
