I just tried a simple HDMI to VGA converter on a Banana Pi. It is a converter without its own power supply.
I am using Kubuntu (a modified Lubuntu image).
I am able to boot, to log in, but then, immediately after login, the system shuts down.
Am I trying to pull too much power through the Banana Pi HDMI connector ?
Is there any risk to dammage the banana Pi by doing so ?
I have seen a couple of short threads talking about the topic, but they are only very shorts exchanges, with no practical details...
Thank you for any advice.
