Maybe wrong here, but even if you didn't buy the SX option on the SS20, it
still came with the framebuffer onboard - you will just be lacking the VSIMM
for it. This is rectified by a) getting a GX or other SBUS FB or b) buying
the VSIMM and installing it? This is the same topic that I was just asking
about, so I'm putting together what I see with what I know and what I learned
here the other day - I reserve the right, at all times, to be incorrect ;)
