Opsis boardΒΆ

This section does not cover how to flash an Opsis board with the HDMI2USB firmware. If you are using a DebConf board, chances are that we already flashed it for you. If you have to flash a board yourself, please consult the relevant documentation.

To access the Opsis board, you will need a TTY terminal application. We recommend you use tio since it works and is available in Debian:

$ apt install tio

Depending on your exact setup and the projector you use, it may be necessary to connect to the board via USB serial to set up the right video modes. This can be done using:

$ tio /dev/ttyACM0
