    Just got my Headplay goggles from China yesterday (ordered back on Dec. 9 ….ouch).

    As I've seen posted here and on Headplay.com, the mini-HDMI to mini-HDMI cable I have
    (and mini-HDMI to HDMI adapters) will not fit into the mini-HDMI socket on the Headplay goggles.
    There is just not enough room in area surrounding the socket of the goggles.
    I know I'll have to shave the mini-HDMI connector plug down a bit, probably on the left side to make it fit in.
    I am thinking of using a razor blade or Dremel tool.
    Just thought I'd ask if anyone has any tips or advice before I proceed, (besides the obvious don't cut myself).
    Thanks

    I use a Stanley-knife to shave all sides before it fits. As you mention I have to take a little bit more on left side.
