Hi All
 Plugged into 1 amp ub adaptor. Have power light, but no signal or sound. I have assembeld the board, happy with the soldering, no go.
Any suggestions. Is one amp sufficiant to run this?
Many thanks

Chris, a 1A power supply should get you going. What make and model is it?

Here are some suggestions.
Using a DVM, measure the 5V on the controller board.
There are two crystals, make sure you have not swapped them around.
Look on your router, and see if the controller registered an IP address. Then connect to the controller via that IP using a browser.
