Lightning struck. Blew out my hdmi splitter, blew out a couple inputs on my tv, and blew out a couple inputs on my receiver(output still works somehow).

And I suspect my moome card which was connected to the hdmi splitter coming off the receiver got fried as well since I don't get picture from the projector anymore.

I'm not 100% ready to scrap it yet since the moome card has been quirky in the past. Sometimes for no particular reason I might have to change the color space or sync on the card to make it happy again. I THINK I've gone through all those steps this time and it's still not working BUT since the card has no visible damage, the cable going to it is still good(tested, it gets signal), it responds to remote commands, and there is more than one input(perhaps the alternate input didn't get fried?), there is a chance I'm just not doing something right.

So, is there a way to hook power to a couple of the pins on the ifb and measure rgb output with a multimeter(oscilloscope) or something along those lines to know for sure whether or not it's fried?

Oy, not ready to go digital yet until those 4k pjs get reasonable. Appreciate any help yall, thanks.

I know Mike Parker did it, so it is possible to fire up a Moome card externally, I just don't know the pinout of the back of the card.
