I just finished installing v21 and my new apron video mod! I’m looking forward to some games and beverages tonight (have to beat those default high scores again).
Many thanks to all of those early adopters who took time to post their installation experience with this mod. I found it very helpful. Most of all, thanks to Fawzma for taking the time to put out and support this cool little upgrade!
Here’s my original apron with the custom black and white instruction cards I made. I won’t need these anymore.
I like how they added the large Spooky logo on the right of the new apron. It’s a lot like what I was trying to do with mine, only better.
Like some of the others, I wasn’t really happy with the hanger option for the boards, plus I wanted to avoid obstructing any LEDs if possible. Looking around the backbox, I noticed how the 3D printed clips holding up the LEDs were spaced.
Sure enough, it’s a match for the mounting bracket for the board assembly. Cool. No drilling required!
I did need a bit longer screw, but fortunately had some of the right size on hand. Everything is nice and stable with the Raspberry Pi back in place.
Looking good! I have to agree that this kit really needs to come with an HDMI angle adapter. As is, it’s a really tight fit getting the cable down into the cabinet, and it puts a lot of pressure on the connector. Plus, as has been pointed out, the cable casts a nasty shadow. For the record, mine requires a 270 degree adapter, and not the suggested 90 degree version (which would run the cable up into the apron). My order should be here tomorrow.
Time to go f**k up some demons!
