I used a Vizio TV and it took about 10 seconds to locate a feed from the power supply board to the main circuit board with 5V and gnd clearly marked.
Great instructions. I really enjoyed this build and it made a very useful device of an old pi and monitor. I had a couple of issues with pesky messages on the screen after a reboot. One is a "click here to access applications menu" message and the other was "Restore pages? Chromium didn't shut down correctly". Both are solved by making the following changes to the autostart file.sudo nano /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostartAdd --incognito to the chromium browser line@chromium-browser --start-fullscreen --disable-session-crashed-bubble --disable-infobars --incognito localhost'At the end of the autostart file (after chromium is started) add:@export DISPLAY=:0.0@xdotool mousemove 50 50
