Can I plug in the Pine with touchscreen to My tv via HDMI?
#1
I  have connected my Pine to touchscreen using Android and it works fine. My question is if I can connect my Pine to my tv to see it on a bigger screen when I am at home and want to watch Kodi for example?  Or do I need to buy another board strictly dedicated to my TV? Any help is appreciated thanks.

You can only use one video output at a time.  So, to use the same board for LCD and hdmi, you will need two SD card ( one for Android LCD , one for hdmi ) .  

The boards are so inexpensive that you can probably afford to own more than one of them... I have three atm.  Dedicate one to the TV ( I have dedicated one to my playdesk ) and dedicate one to your playbox. Solved.

You can use the LCD image with HDMI only after the system boots. If HDMI is connected during boot, it will hang.
+1 me if I have helped you in any way. Thank you.
