hmm, I dont remember, if CE and Wifi antennas was included in the preorder package…

My thoughts are that CE for VIM3L needs to be tested/developed/polished yet.

Anyway, great to see nice coop here, users will be very happy - in case there doesnt pop some dealbreaker as HDMI-(power)issues in N2 case.

The wifi antennas are included with every board regardless of if you choose to purchase the kit option or not.

what about for Quality video if i compare VIM3 ?
Same Quality ? or less than VIM3 ?

They use the same video blocks, AFAIK, so the video quality should be the same.

Cool :slight_smile: I think I didnt realize it has wifi chip when I order it. Nice too see clever design with pigtail support, instead shitty internal antenna.

Two questions: The website doesn’t mention CoreElec? Is it just understood?
Is CoreElec tuned for this chip now?

It’s still work in progress, but it mostly works.
