No, that's a separate thing.

Internally the TCON has two channels, one connected to panels type of
display (LVDS, Parallel, etc), the second one connected to TV outputs
(HDMI, composite).

But then, on some SoCs like the A20, you have two TCON's too. As far
as I could see, only the first TCON can use LVDS, but I'm not
definitive.

Allwinner seems to allow panels to only be tied to TCON0 in the BSP,
so I guess we can assume that.

What painpoints do you have?

I will, thanks!
