Multimedia MPEG2-2 Decode and other graphics apps do not output using "Matrix App Launcher p1" ?

When I press Run for applications I expect to see graphics output such as Multimedia MPEG2-2 Decode, OpenGL Vase, or QT 2D Graphics Moving Blocks it pauses for a couple of seconds but I see no graphics being output? I am a newbie. Any feedback on what I may be missing is much appreciated. What I have done:

Also, in case anyone familiar with the Boston 2011 ESC image is reading this, can it be used to reproduce the impressive demo showing the DSP decoding a H.264 movie while rendering a webcam stream onto a rotating 3D cube and displaying streaming data from a Chronos ez430?

I am impressed by this little board. Thanks in advance for any direction.


I am using the HDMI output connected to 1280 x 1024 DVI display.

Is an display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 HD required to run Matrix App Launcher graphics apps such as OpenGL Vase? Or is the s-video output what I should be using instead of the HDMI?



I assume this is the root cause but I do not know the solution. If I open terminal and run an SGX demo I see:

InitAPI failed!
PVRShell: Unable to initialize EGL

The latest clues from my boot up terminal. Any advice or direction please?
