  2. ODROID HC1 / HC2

    Can you explain how you achieved this? I have tried a couple of steps including https://obihoernchen.net/1416/odroid-xu4-tune-network-and-usb-speed it doesn't seem to affect performance significantly when copying files from Win to HC1 through 1GE. It averages 55Mbytes/s which is think is too low. The same disk connected to my Odroid, I used with an USB/SATA cable before attached to my Win machine, the disk takes easily 130MBytes/s. I have tried that same disk with a rock64 (no tuning) and that same USB/SATA cable and Samba, it was twice as fast. I timed copying the same ~100GB of files.
  3. No /dev/dvb on UDOO Quad

    Hi I have no /dev/dvb on my UDOO Quad. I'm trying to get MythTV or tvheadend working on my UDOO Quad with Armbian Jessie with kernal 4.4.102 glen@udoo:~$ uname -a Linux udoo 4.4.102-udoo #2 SMP Fri Nov 24 18:49:01 CET 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux I thought that dvb drivers were included in version 3.19 of the kernel and up? Anyway I copied dvb-usb-af9015.fw to /lib/firmware and rebooted. But nothing shows up under /dev/dvb/ I would expect there to be adapter0 and adapter1 Here is my lsusb: glen@udoo:~$ lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 13d3:3226 IMC Networks DigitalNow TinyTwin DVB-T Receiver Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:2514 Standard Microsystems Corp.

  4. The issue with sda vs sdb didn't come back since I am using the oversized power supply. I got a multi-meter and measured the voltage under normal conditions, when the HC1 is loaded with compiling code and used one of my utilities to create lots of files keeping the disk busy. The voltage stayed in between 5.19 and 5.17. I noticed that my switch suddenly indicated that the Ethernet connection from it to HC1 is only of 100Mbit (orange light). I unplugged the cable and it changed back to 1Gbit. A little after it happened again. I am actually running Samba on the HC1 and indeed the connection seemed capped at 100MBit e.g. copying files from my Win machine didn't exceed 10Mbyes/s. After unplug and plug again it was back to 1GE and 50-70Mbytes/s transfer speed (from Win to it). I continue watching if I see the 1GE downgrade to fast Ethernet again.

  6. Noise on A10/ A20 board at 866MHz

    I chased down EMI problems with A20-Micro in the past. We were using inside and enclosure with some sensitive ADCs. Had no access to a DSA, but main causes in my case were(in order of importance): -Power supply- We had a switching wall-wart type supply @12v. Replaced with battery, then with a better quality power supply. Ferrites on the supply cable helped a lot too. -Buck converter on board the A20-Micro is noisy- Try powering board by the 5v_Ext pins (obviously don't exceed 5v) If you get an improvement, please share another shot from your DSA.
  7. Orangepi camera module - best resolution

    + 5MP camera orange pi (google site search) = and you'll probably end on the same thread that @gnasch suggested you on December 13th 2016... And maybe some other informations...
  8. Hi, I would like to use Orange Pi Zero for home automation server. I'm finding method to install os upgrades (and my own app upgrade too). I plan to have a lot of devices hundreds of kilometers from me, so I cannot break device over ssh or during update. For example Ubuntu snappy core using two rootfs and user can rollback to previous version: $ sudo snappy rollback ubuntu-core Rolling back ubuntu-core: (edge 141 7f068cb4fa876c -> edge 140 184ad1e863e947) Reboot to use the new ubuntu-core. $ sudo reboot $ ssh -p 8022 ubuntu@localhost $ snappy versions -a Part Tag Installed Available Fingerprint Active ubuntu-core edge 140 141 184ad1e863e947 * ubuntu-core edge 141 - 7f068cb4fa876c R docker edge 1.3.2.007 - b1f2f85e77adab * owncloud edge 7.0.3.008 - 81ebbbea41f48e * Reboot to use the new ubuntu-core. Next question: I'm using for long time Armbian on one of my Orange Pi Zero board. I upgrade (apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade) it about once per week. After login I see: Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.36 user-built Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.113-sun8i If I undestand it right, Armbian 5.36 is latest up to date. But kernel 3.4 is deprecated without security support. I'm finding how to upgrade all system with kernel using apt (I need supported version of kernel). On many posts in forum people say something like: "better and easiest way is backup sd card, flash new armbian, install apps and restore data from backup". It is absolutelly unusable for me! I found bad, or there is no better upgrade process? I downloaded stable image of Armbian for my Orange Pi Zero about year ago on https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-zero/ it was debian-based image. Today on web is only ubuntu-based image. (But at https://dl.armbian.com/orangepizero/ is still possible to download both ubuntu and debian based distro - both versions are from the same day.) How should I understand it? For new install now I could use ubuntu and no debian? So my main three questions are: 1) How to upgrade system and kernel and all packages using apt? 2) Is possible to rollback system if system update fails (or I delete import files...) to last working state? 3) What I can use for new install? Debian, or Ubuntu based image? And my device with Debian image has problem? Do I need update to Ubuntu? Thanks for help!
  9. Yes, it's seeing my SSID and it's trying to connect to it (you can see it in the log), but for some reason it's failing, sometimes when it's passing the password, and when running from the command line, sometimes when trying to get a DHCP IP.
  10. NanoPi Fire3 64bit octacore

    there's your starting point: https://github.com/armbian/build/blob/caaa9eae10e988deb49f463282aa67cf8382090a/config/boards/nanopim3.wip there's your searchengine(s): there's the thread you would probably find:
  11. What is the the best reasonably priced camera module for Orangepi models these days? Raspberry has 5 and 8 megapixel camera modules from 7-30 euros. Orangepi has only 2 megapixel cameras. Or has a 5MP cameramode come available for Orangepi also? I've looked at Aliexpress and nothing seems to have changed.
  12. ARMBIAN for Amlogic S905 and S905X

    My mx-plus (p200-board) does boot with the 2018-01-16 image. network+wifi+ Bluetooth works. Shutdown works only if called before logon (from lightdm). Shutdown from mate hangs. Filesystem seems OK when reboot after hang. Image Form 2017-12-26 works fine. Bitz

  14. ethernet connection keeps dropping out.

    1) One thing that I have found that is interesting is that whenever I start a program (python script, stress) on the NanoPi while the ethernet link was working, the ethernet link would go down and then come back up. This seems to indicate that it is NanoPi problem (software/hardware) and not a camera/wiring/power problem. I boosted the min clock speed to 816MHz (max at default 912MHz) to see if that might help, but no effect. Governor is interactive. 2) @arox I tried disabling link negotiation and it had no effect.

  15. Armbian for Amlogic S802/S812

    Hello. I have a TV-Box MXIII (amlogic s812). I installed Armbian_5.37_S812_Ubuntu_xenial_3.10.108_mate_20180112.img. The installation has been complete correctly and i can get into the system from SSH. The problem is with the usb ports. This device have two usb ports 2.0 and one OTG but they don't run. When i restart the device the usb port run for a segs ( i know it because the usb led turn on for a segs) but when the system is started i can't use the usb ports. Seems like haven't power or something. If i do lsubs y get this: root@vegas812:~# lsusb Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0610 Genesys Logic, Inc. 4-port hub Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub some idea ?
  16. Ok. Solved I needed to go back to 4.4 kernel (next). And i forgot to install linux-stretch-root-next-udoo. 4.14 kernel is not working for me.
  17. USB ports don't work on MXIII

    Hello. I have a TV-Box Android MXIII-G. Recently i installed armbian (3.10.108) from this image https://yadi.sk/d/wc2jqGsHuKy48. The image has been installed pretty good, i can get into the system with ssh service and apparently the system work good less the usb ports. This device have two ports USB 2.0 and one port OTG. I was read on the forum what you have to turn on them from echo on > /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb1/power/level but i can't do that. I can't create the file level on the folder power and i don't have it on there, when i try to write the file on that folder i get this error: [ Error writing lock file ./.level.swp: No such file or directory ]. Can someone help me ? thanks
  18. Haupage WinTV-dualHD

    Hello, I have a main WinTV dualHD http://www.hauppauge.de/site/products/data_dualhd.html, unt wanted this under Debian Stretch with the image from here https://www.armbian.com/cubietruck/ Mainlaine Kernel, use, according to this page https://git.linuxtv.org/media_tree.git/commit/drivers/media/usb/em28xx?id=11a2a949d05e9d2d9823f0c45fa476743d9e462b or even this https://www.mail-archive.com/ linux-media@vger.kernel.org/msg113120.html this should work ha. However, when I plug in the stick, I get this message: dmesg https://pastebin.com/mtyLnARP I also tried this here https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/v4l-dvb/ but also without success dmesg | grep -i dvb [25.680224] em28xx 1-1.4: 1.0: DVB interface 0 found: isoc [27.298820] em28xx 1-1.4: 1.0: Identified as Hauppauge WinTV Dual HD DVB (card = 99) [27.306636] em28xx 1-1.4: 1.0: dvb set to isoc mode.

  19. armbian on MINIX NEO U9-H

    where can I find a manual that says how to update it and run a dual boot Armbian external media
  20. testers wanted ArmbianIO API proposal

    Nice idea. Could be useful for the TV-Boxes too, at least for some special use cases.
  21. emby server install error

    I finally managed to install emby-server on Raspbian Stretch. I had kept getting the same errors. Try this as su: curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh docker run -it --rm -v /usr/local/bin:/target emby/embyserver:armv7 instl
  22. testers wanted ArmbianIO API proposal

    It's nice seeing your project growing. Did you ever thought about a wrapper for JS/NodeRed? I don't know how much efforts it needs but toggeling GPIOs from a standard Node could be a really cool function. btw. I merged parts from the H5 thread here, cause I thought it makes more sense to have it here, in case you don't like it, just give me a PM and I roll it back..
  23. Hello, I am using the Olimex OLinuxino and I find a constant noise at about 866.725MHz or thereabout in every board. While low, at -100dBm, when using it with IoT radios this is the band in India and it is quite a pain in applications requiring high sensitivity. This particular board had it pretty nasty at -86dB. I have tried with changing the DDR frequency as well as the CPU clock, however this nuisance refuses to go away. What can be done to get rid of this noise ? I have tried multiple boards -- Olinuxino (multiple), Marsboard, but each has some noise in exactly same band near 866MHz. Please advise.
  24. Hi, there is a very intersting board: NanoPi Fire3. It is an Octacore 64 bit SOC. And it needs to have an Armbian installation! Please port it to this board if you can, it seemd to be powerfull. Many thanks!!
  25. Choosing a chip!

    buying a reliable fast SD-Card (randomIO) --> boom same price. I don't know how fast (randomIO the other boards eMMC is, maybe you'll find something by using the search engine, probably in one of @tkaisers thread about this topic). you should decide on your needs... Do you need HDMI? Do you need Ethernet? Do you need wifi? There you go: http://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining_effort#Status_Matrix But mainline support != armbian support (it depends how good the board is supported, are the dts files written for the board or are there patches to get proper support, in case you need wifi --> does this work properly - in case of the OPi0, XR819 seems to be still a nightmare). To my knowledge H2+/H3 is more or less the same (except GbE opportunity for H3 SoCs). H5 is 64bit, does your project benefit from 64bit? Does your project need 'maximum performance'? What does performance mean? To keep it short, without describing your project a bit more, nobody can help you.. Nobody can say if it will benefit from a 64bit SoC, nobody can say if you need 'maximum performance' etc...

  27. Support of Raspberry Pi

    I know... It's still laying around... And somewhere there's a small metal box laying around with beagle bone (I think it was the first generation of the beaglebone). There was also a tablet before apple presented the iPad. It's not about who was first, it's about who produces an attractive product for an attractive price (I think my bones where around 90$ each). The RPi1 was somehow similar to the RPi0 at the moment (you could only buy one, and the chance to get one was really low - when mine arrived resell prices on ebay where around 90-100$ ). There where better products but none of them fulfilled to grow such a big community (in western countries). There's a similarity to the arduino project. I had an AVR programmed with basecom on my breadboard with a crystal and was able to let a led blink. There was the AVR Butterfly, probably the 'best project' to start with microcontrollers in those days... but there was 'no' community around those projects. There was 'nobody' who tried to explain us idiots how to use those MCUs what stupid led blink projects we could deploy on those boards, no open available i2c, spi libraries for all those nice little sensors to work. Now we have all those small MCUs (various Atmels, STMs ESPs etc.), someone started to port Python for the more powerful devices and Adafruit/sparkfun made cool little sensor boards inclusive their drivers only to wait a month until the 'same' board pop up on aliexpress from a chinese manufacturer which only makes the board without driver ('you can use Adafruit driver it works good') for half of the price(different story )... Every boardmaker which tries to catch a part of the 'customer cake' has a 'RPi compatible' pinheader. It's annoying but they define 'standards'. Everyone builds microUSB powered boards, a lot of boards have the RPi size to press them in the smallest cases you can find which ends often in terrible overheating devices, 'nobody' places the SoC on the right side - it should be on the bottom to cool them with a case with an aluminum baseplate --> OK, the HC1 did it right, the EspressoBin too, but most boardmaker do it the same annoying way than the raspberry pi does it, everyone places as much USB connectors as possible (mostly 4) on the board, even if you don't have any chance to power them properly (4x 500mA only for USB). All beaglebones/boards had a nice barrelplug years ago, they knew that a microUSB might be a shitty decision for powering a SBC but we have 2018 and there are still boardmakers which deploy microUSB powered boards cause RPi 'defined' it as a 'standard' (I'm sure, if they would power the RPi with a 5V 4.1mm barrelplug since model one, we would see a lot of barrelplug powered boards... ). The RPi might not be the 'grandfather' of all SBCs but it was the growing incubator to got more attention to those little ARM boards (OK, an incubator in western countries... )...
