ADV8005 4k30 TTL input simple setup

I have a custom board with an ADV8005 and am currently trying to drive 4k30 out the HDMI TX1.  I am just trying to prove out the hardware at this point so simple is best.  I have put the VSPs in bypass (MODE 9) and am trying to pass 4k30 that is being driven from an FPGA to the ADV8005 on the 48 pin TTL input (interleaved 24bit buses @ 148.5MHz) and get it to drive out the HDMI TX 1.  I can see that HPD is active and that the TMDS clock termination is present (0xEC42: 0xE0) but I cannot get the HDMI TX to come out of power down. This seems simple enough since I am bypassing all of the VSP complexity but no luck.  From a fresh hardware external reset I run the script below to set everything up.  Based on the HW guide I am bypassing the VSPs so I should not have to enable the FFS VIM or VOM components or setup any of their video modes.  Can someone tell me what I am missing?  (Note my i2c address is 0x18>>1 = 0x0c)
