That's the correct order, VREF would be the square of the JTAG conn.

You can't solder .5mm pins? Align the connector, put some flux on there, add a small drop of solder and drag it across the pins with your iron. Keep on adding if you need to, then clean up with a wick. For inspection, you don't even need a magnifying glass, just take a photo with your phone (turn flash and hdr off to get stable focus), and zoom in. When you're done, clean it thoroughly with a toothbrush dipped in acetone (better) or high concentration alcohol. You can use a hair drier on the cold setting to make it evaporate quickly.

May I ask were how you mounted the board? I'm looking to install one of these myself

I would imagine slightly more so that's how the GameCube is plus I hear the Wii component is not as great so maybe a lot better and as good/ better than a new model which I hear has slightly better video and maybe putting it in s new model would be best? Or is it like the ultrahdmi where either revision it looks the same

I bought the board pre-programmed from KNJN.com with version 2.3 pre-flashed
Soldered all of the connections, however I get no blinking LEDs and no video displayed on the screen (though my monitor stops showing the self check function as soon as I plug in the cable).
Thinking I soldered something wrong, I desoldered everything cut new wires and soldered it again with the same results as the first time (no blinking LEDs, no video when the gamecube is plugged in).
I bought the programmer as people have said that bad flashes have caused this to occur before and FPGAconf said that version 2.3 was already flashed (and apparently won't flash the same firmware again onto it).
I tried the just released v2.4 of GCVideo and this time I get LED #28 flashing at I think the right speed (it isn't lighting fast, but isn't very slow either), but LED 29 is solid red (which means no digital video input?)
I also tried reflashing v2.3 of GCVideo after flashing v2.4 and still get the same results.
For fun I flashed the sample HDMI firmware from KNJN and that does display video on my monitor (so I think this eliminates my monitor, cable, and FPGA from having an issue from the equation).
I have ran a continuity test between the wires on the board and the gamecube and everything checks out as being connected and I've verified the wiring scheme multiple times and don't see any issues.
Is there any thing I can use my meter to check to see what the problem may be? I can try to snap a few pictures of the wiring job if that helps.
