Arnova devices currently lack HDMI output, but some of the device cases clearly show a plastic cover the size of an HDMI connector.

Side of the Arnova 10 show HDMI spot circled in red.

Our forum user p1ceus was curious enough to disassemble his tablet to see what was behind ;) According to his findings:

there are already prepared holes and pins for miniHDMI connector!
According to this pinout, I tried to measure at least voltage and voila, it is under power ;) miniHDMI connector which should match the holes and pins is here.

Closer look at the mother board.

In addition, it's interesting to note that the Arnova 10 G2 device seem to already have software support for HDMI output, see following system files already present in current device firmware:

system/etc/permissions/android.rockchip.hdmi.xml
system/frameworkandroid.rockchip.hdmi.jar
system/frameworkandroid.rockchip.hdmi.odex
system/lib/hwhdmi.rk28board.so
system/lib/librockchip_hdmi_jni.so

We'll keep you updated about the success of this project and see if it can also be done on other tablets.

Please note than opening your tablet case may void the device warranty.

I had to repair my charge port, and when I open the case I noticed this aswell. The question I have is where would you by such a part? I checked the firmware file and every thing seems to be in order to run HDMI. All we'd.need is to put one in and try it. I'm sure we could make a driver if needed.

From what I can see from the photo it looks as if it may be this one (no guarantee on that though):-

if anyone wants to give it a try. Let us know how you get on.

I see the 5 screws on the back, but then can't get the back off, any pointers.
I've only had mine a few weeks, don't really want to mark it too much yet.

Sorry but it's not that one, that's standard size.
It's a mini receptacle so therefore could be it's this one:-

(Like I said, no guarantee on that either)

Thanks for that.
As you will have noticed I needed to correct a mistake in my first comment, is it possible to edit a previous comment rather than have to post another ? (like I did).

You can edit your own post.  I could roll them into one post, but you should be able to fix the original post (and if I see a dupe, I'll delete it).
