Same behavior I see. The only way to get the VGA to work is to set it
as the boot device and boot with the cable attached to the projector.
Most of the time [but, strangely, not all] it then boots with the VGA,
but not the LCD. This is really a pain when trying to do a
presentation, because I have to keep looking at the big screen instead
of just glancing down at the TPad that is normally right in front of
The TPad On-Screen Display [TPOSD] will often show both as being set,
but most of the time, it doesn't work as shown.
Really seems like this should be a high priority for someone.
