    New NUC DN2820FYKH - Several Issues

    Swifty

      I purchased a couple of the DN2820FYKH NUC's to use as HTPC's, which much to my excitement arrived yesterday.

      Unfortunately my excitement was short lived when I couldn't enter the BIOS by pressing F2 (so I could enable UEFI as per Intel guidance).

       

      I then tried to update the BIOS to 025 via F7, which hung while updating (screen just froze at the prompt 'Press enter to continue, ESC to cancel')

      After waiting 20-25mins I gave up and turned it off, and then it wouldn't even turn on correctly (no POST).

      I recovered by changing the jumper on the board and flashing the 025 BIOS again.

       

      Even with the 025 BIOS I still couldn't get into Setup when pressing F2.. it just hung.

      I tried my brand new LG TV which gave some text 'Entering Setup'.. but it never did, it just hung.

      I eventually (after trying both my TVs) got into the BIOS by using my Dell PC Monitor (which luckily has HDMI in!) but as I only had a keyboard connected, I couldn't do anything after selecting a drop down box item... the keyboard seemed to die (I haven't tried with a mouse yet).

       

      I eventually got Windows 8.1 installed, but would love to get some response on the following issues, as one of the suggested 'use cases' by Intel is to use this box as a HTPC, so this should be a hell of a lot less painful that it is at the moment IMHO.

      1. Can only enter the BIOS on some displays (that support 1024x768?) - This is fundamental... I shouldn't have to go and find an HDMI PC monitor / other display to get into the BIOS..
      2. Keyboard navigation appears to be broken in the BIOS after selecting any item inside a drop down list (even the F1-12 keys stopped working..)
      3. With all the latest Intel drivers loaded in Windows 8.1, I see nowhere to configure overscan.. I can do this in some apps (eg XBMC) but obviously it doesn't help the OS. With this device being touted as an ideal HTPC by Intel, it really needs some ability to adjust overscan at an OS level (like you can with NVIDIA and AMD)
