    I just unboxed the mini PC and connected it to my TV set where my eight year old NUC used to be.
    My TV set has 3 HDMI and 1 mini DP connector (this is where the NUC is connected to).

    Took the mini DP from the NUC and into the PJ's DP connector, fired the box up, ... nothing.. :(
    I then turned it off, took the HDMI from my Apple TV 4K and connected that to the Pepper Jobs, still nothing..

    In share desperation, I then took the PJ box and connected it to a spare monitor - using HDMI, and presto! It works, but NOT on the TV set (It's a Samsung UHD 4K tv).

    My question is: What do I do wrong since my old-ass NUC works with the TV, and not this Pepper Job?

    OK, I see theres mentions about an adapter for this to work:
    Will this one work with the Pepper Jobs mini PC?

    Yes, you need an ACTIVE adapter. That would work.
