ABS Playbox came with no extension cable?
#1
I have seen some videos on assembling the Pine64 with the playbox and they all mention at lest one extension cable. My case just arrived with none and so I have 2 questions;

1. Anyone know the 30 pin cable type and/or where to order it from?
2. Is it worth trying to chase it down through pine64?

Now before the flames start let me just say I am in no way attacking these guys for the work they've done with the last question. I'm more wondering about response times and it would probably be easier to order a cable from somewhere else.

All that aside I am still anxious to see if this project works because I've waited (patiently) for all the pieces to come before I set it up.

thanks in advance.

The extension cable (and adapter) is in the bottom of the LCD display box where it is very easily missed; and often discarded with the packaging.  You might check yours, if you still have it.  The cable and connector are fairly common parts, is the good news;  just google it.

Same here.  Got the short one with the LCD, but didn't get one with the case.  Ordered some, but will be here Friday-next week.
