    Mr Finch got a reaction from Hakahazi in T95RPro   
    TV Box Name (example: TX3 mini): T95RPro
    CPU (example: amlogic s905w): S912
    Armbian build file name: Can't remember, last supported one from Balbes150
    DTB file used: meson-gxm-vega-s96.dtb (tested several others working, can't remember which, only this with HDMI audio, none with bluetooth, some with WiFi but HDMI Audio is more important for me.)
    Kernel Version: 5.9.0-arm-64
    Distribution Installed (focal, buster, etc): Bullseye
    Working Ethernet (Yes/No): Yes
    Max Ethernet Speed that works (100/1000): Tested speed well over 300mbps, not sure if it reaches 1000mbps since don't have any drive to uphold that over USB.
    Does wifi work (Yes/No): Wifi is disabled, can't enable it whatsoever.
    Does bluetooth work (Yes/No): No, couldn't manage to make it work at all.
    Does HDMI audio work (Yes/No): Yes, flawlessly. (not in every tested .dtb files)
    Additional Comments (provide any additional information you feel is important): 
    Using a Kingston 32GB uSD Card as primary drive. Not installed to internal yet, nor very convinced to even try it.
    Standard USB hard drive bays would not work by just plugging in once the BOX booted on Armbian. (even those that work normally under "factory" Android) Some just won't be recognized, but some will make BOX to freeze.
    In order to overcome this, I had to plug them BEFORE turning the BOX on. On some instances I would use an USB-multi-bay with it's own power source that can be turned on and off at will and the BOX will not go bananas.
    This box will allow me to plug several hard disks at will be it internal or in any of it's 2 USB ports.

    I'm using it as a normal desktop, but also running:
    nginx mariadb(mysql) server a test java website. (quite heavy) and samba server. (primarily is my NAS) Mostly to fiddle around instead of be messing with the actual servers at production. (Around 700MB RAM required as base.)
    Desktop is accessed using VNC and SSH to fiddle with servers.
    Made a hole above CPU heatsink to allow heat go out, otherwise mostly all the time would be around 80 degrees, thermaly throtling and making my life misserable. Around 70 to 60 degrees and it will be handlong as any normal desktop.
    Planning to add a small fan, just need to find somewhere to connect it in the BOX.
