What I understood from his replies on german forum the module is for ECS Amigas (A2000 and A3000 video slots) and for A4000 is needed physically longer module with more pins. Not sure if he plan to produce it. Lets wait for more answers, nobody is sure right now.

When I checked this morning it's impossible to buy the graphics card as it's sold out. Only the video module is available to buy.

yes looks like I bought the last of batch yesterday but I'm just waiting for clarification on the module attachment right now as I've already purchased the main graphics card itself.

I've been in talks with him in the facebook group and he has said currently the video slot module doesnt support output of the AGA modes but he has built them to support it at a later time with plans to do so. He has made it with enough pins to add in the support with a firmware update.

I guess I'll wait for the third batch to pick up a second card and video adapter for both... :)

I am blown away.  32MB graphic card with HDMI output.  Hot damn.  The icing on the cake would be if the video adapter would support AGA and audio to put sound out the HDMI.

Does the video slot carry audio signals from Paula? Afaik it does not, but I've certainly been wrong before. ;)

You'd probably need one of those HDMI cables like kipper2k used to sell:
Amiga 500: 2MB Chip|16MB Fast|30MHz 68030+68882|3.9|Indivision ECS|GVP A500HD+|Mechware card reader + 8GB CF|Cocolino|SCSI DVD-RAM
Amiga 2000: 2MB Chip|136MB Fast|50MHz 68060|3.9|Indivision ECS + GVP Spectrum|Mechware card reader + 8GB CF|AD516|X-Surf 100|RapidRoad|Cocolino|SCSI CD-RW

It does.  And unless that cable has a digital converter, it is custom and just uses some pins in the cable to carry the analog audio.  HDMI is entirely digital.

ok thanks for the info, glad to hear the addon card is update ready for AGA when available and a new card doesn't have to be purchased

ok got a response from the developer and it looks like no AGA support for the add on board unfortunately for A4000 users:

'no, there is no AGA support. I recommend to use your Indivision instead.
I'm also working on something similar to Ratte switch but for HDMI.

Cheers
Lukas"

That is not an answer I would be happy about. The video module then is worthy only for Amiga 2000 because A3000 already have high-quality scandoubler with flickerfixer. Pity he does not plan AGA module :(

oh well just glad I got a straight response directly from the developer and I hope the HDMI switch for the Indivision AGA MK2 comes to fruition as it looks like I'll need to be keeping mine in my A4000 after all
