  1. Thank you. Understood. Thought for a bit that increasing the size of the boot partition would make the updates work better. Yes this one here is still running at 1 Gb after updating. I did have errors on the second or third update and froze the build. I was able to utilize the 5XX builds with Wireless / Bluetooth running but not Gb Ethernet.
  2. Well posting out loud here figured it out. 1 - bios serial port settings were off. Here there are 4 serial ports out and none were enabled 2 - PFSense baud rate was incorrect All is well now. Apologies for the fuss.
  3. Hardware: 1 - NEO-8M GPS Satellite Positioning Module for Arduino STM32 C51 $7.49 USD on Ebay. NOTE it is using TTL output. Validated USB GPS connection to work fine. 2 - Uxcell a14041500ux1216 MAX232CSE Transfer Chip RS232 to TTL Converter Module COM Serial Board for $7.37 USD (Amazon) I connected PPS pin to Pin #1 on RS-232 interface. Using Linux connected USB port and RS-232 port to laptop. I see GPS chit chat fine on two serial intefaces. Using this for a new PFSense box QOTOM Mini PC. T
  4. I have left it running now for a few weeks and it runs fine. It did error out on one update and I rebooted it and updated it again and it is fine. NOTE: this is only for the T95Z Max S912 TVBox. Thinking though of freezing the updates now on it.... _____ ___ ____ _____ ____ ___ _ ____ |_ _/ _ \| ___|__ / / ___|/ _ \/ |___ \ | || (_) |___ \ / / \___ \ (_) | | __) | | | \__, |___) / /_ ___) \__, | |/ __/ |_| /_/|____/____| |____/ /_/|_|_____| Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.73 stable Ubuntu 18.04.2 LT
  5. Seeing that CoreElect running: Linux ICS-X9T 3.14.29 #1 SMP Sun May 12 15:03:58 BST 2019 aarch64 GNU/Linux Old kernel decided to try Armbian_5.44_S9xxx_Ubuntu_bionic_3.14.29_server_20180729.img.xz. Interesting that it booted right up and ethernet interface is working fine now. I understand that the kernel is old but really all I want is this box to run Armbian Ubuntu Server. Not interested in using the wireless and or blue tooth interface at this time. ____ ___ / ___|/ _ \__ ____ ____ __ \___ \ (_) \ \/ /\ \/ /\ \/ / ___) \__, |&g
  6. Here for two S912 boxes and current version of KODI TicTid X9T Pro - S912 - 3Gb - Gb NIC TX9 Pro Amlogic S912 - 3Gb - Gb NIC Went to using CoreElec mostly for HD 4K playback and that is using the old kernel. ############################################## # CoreELEC # # # ############################################## CoreELEC (official): 9.0.2 (Amlogic.arm) ICS-X9T:~ # uname -a Linux ICS-X9T 3.14.29 #1 SMP Sun May 12 15:03:58 BST 2019 aarch64 GNU/Linux ICS-X9T:~ # I did get HD
  7. Thank you amirul will give meson-gxm-q200.dtb a try. Odd thing is that for server mode on all of the other S912 boxes (3Gb, Gb NIC) the meson-gxm-khadas-vim2.dtb works great. IE: TicTid X9T Pro - S912 - 3Gb - Gb NIC TX9 Pro Amlogic S912 - 3Gb - Gb NIC It is only on this box (T95Z Max) that I cannot get the network ethernet running. I prefer to connect these boxes used as servers via their ethernet connection over their wireless connection. BTW Wireless is working perfectly. ifconfig eth0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST&g
  8. OK got ethernet sort of working on the T95 Z Max TV Box (S912 - 3Gb - 1Gb NIC) using meson-gxm-q201.dtb. /boot# uname -a Linux HS3-ATL 5.1.0-aml-s905 #5.89 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jun 17 13:01:39 MSK 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux eth0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 ether c4:2a:fe:36:11:32 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 device interrupt 20
  9. Tinkering a bit with changing DTB file I can get a mac address but no IP right now....T95Z Max S912 - 3Gb - Gb NIC
  10. Trying newest firmware Ubuntu Disco Desktop on a S912 3Gb Gb NIC TVBox. All looks to be OK except that the NIC card doesn't start. Wireless works fine.

  11. Here just built a second PFSense box and testing out a new mini GPS (Arduino style) that has built in RS-232 and PPS signal. It is around $7 USD with free shipping on Ebay. My primary GPS / PPS is a modded Sure GPS. Tiny box DIN mounting this box. I know this doesn't have much to do with the TVBox / Armbian rather just a NTP time source for my home network.
  12. You are making me paranoid. All I do is run MS SAPI on the Windows 7 embedded. 5 voices as I collect SAPI voice fonts (multiple languages). I prefer to keep the voice TTS in house versus using the Amazon Alexa for TTS (although I am tinkering with it).
  13. @jianchunchen I wrote the image to an SD card, booted pressing the reset button and I was good to go. Specifically it was the server version: VIMs_Ubuntu-server-bionic_Linux-4.9_arm64_SD-USB_V20190604.7z I used Etcher to write the SD card on my Ubuntu 18.04 laptop. The above said one T95Z Max has turned out to be a "dud". It started to overheat a couple of weeks ago and when it is hot it doesn't work. Rather than open the case (break the seals) I have returned it. The other T95Z Max is running CoreElec and doing fine.
  14. Testing X9T Pro (S912 3Gb RAM Gb NIC) today with ARMBIAN 5.86 user-built Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 5.1.0-aml-s905 and using meson-gxm-vega-s96.dtb. Also tested desktop version. Boots fine. Network comes up. Looks like it talks IP6 just fine except that it cannot get to the armbian site on update using IP6. Wierd stuff with SSH. Reconfigured it and sometimes it just disconnects me. Disabled IP6 via armbian-config. Rebooted. Boot up got stuck in boot directory. Cold booted and it was OK and accessible via SSH. Using armbian-config instal
  15. Wanting to build a new Armbian server from a TV Box. Video is not a requirement here as the device will be headless. Just a quickie picture relating to the size of this box. I am impressed. It will be mounted inside of a security panel (Leviton Omni Pro 2) and serve as a console to said security panel using automation software. Ideally though want: - Gb NIC - 32 Gb eMMC - 4 Gb RAM Bluetooth and WLAN is nice to have but not necessary for my use. Been only tinkering here with Octocore ARM CPU TV boxes but not necessary
