iMX6Solo No HDMI

Hi All,


I am having problems with the HDMI output on a custom iMX6 SOLO board. Firstly, the HDMI port doesn't go to the outside world (i.e. a connector) but is wired into a Xilinx FPGA. I have altered a standard u-boot (modified wandboard files as the wandboard defaults to HDMI) to suit my hardware, but I cannot get the HDMI signals to switch on. Every other aspect of the system works, I have 2 x SD cards, 2 x USB ports, audio codec, ethernet, serial ports, working kernel, etc, but no HDMI. Any ideas where I can start to look? Are there any specific hardware requirements for the HDMI PHY that I am overlooking?


Many thanks




FYI the output from u-boot goes:
