TENGRI REMOTE COCKPIT - HDMI INPUT / OUTPUT TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS
STEP 1 - First determine if the HDMI Output is functioning properly
A) Connect only the HDMI Output device to the Remote Cockpit.
(Do not connect any input camera)
B) Power the HDMI Output device only, do not power the Remote Cockpit.
C) Check if the Remote Cockpit power light comes on when the HDMI
Output device is powered on.

HDMI Output device if the Flight Controller is not connected or the Flight Controller
Telemetry data appears on HDMI Output device if connected.
STEP 2 - Determine if the HDMI Input camera is functioning properly
A) Connect the HDMI Input camera directly to your HDMI Output device to determine
if the HDMI Output on the camera and the HDMI cable are functioning properly.
B) If the HDMI camera output and cable are functioning properly, connect the
camera to Remote Cockpit and power up the camera first and then power up the
Remote Cockpit with the HDMI Output device connected following the STEPS 1) above.
C) Go to the Remote Cockpit configuration menu.
D) Select HDMI IN as the video source for the Main Window in the Configuration menu.
