Lifting away our first EMI shield reveals more
Hubba Bubbathermal paste!

The HDMI cable sports a super-durable design, what with its tough rubbery exterior, heavily-soldered connector, and bolted-down connector bracket.
After we pry up the bracket, the HDMI cable flies away free—leaving just the motherboard bits of the device.
