  1. I’ve added a second script, CH340-interactive.py, to enable you to manually control your fan.
  2. I own a few Android TV boxes that have poor thermal designs that are prone to overheating when under sustained load. This can either cause your device to significantly slow down or shut down entirely. This can be fixed by cutting a hole in the bottom on your TV box above the SoC and sticking a small USB fan on it. In my case I am using a AC Infinity 40mm x 20mm USB Fan that cost me £10. CH340-fan-control is a python script to only activate my TV boxes USB fan when required by using a USB relay module. I'd expect somebody (or several somebodies) have already wrote a similar script f
  3. Hi lgranie! I'm trying to get mpv to work w/ meson vpu acceleration under Wayland on my X96 Air Q1000 (S905X3) running Manjaro ARM unstable. Have you had any success in getting 4K h264 videos to play smoothly on a 4K display under KDE or GNOME wayland? Have you only got meson decoding to work with mpv under Weston? Have you tried recent versions of KDE or GNOME with this? I'm using your mpv settings but I've not been able to get any videos to play smoothly yet. I should try some 1080p videos too to see if its just 4K vids that are the problem.
  4. Are the build scripts for building H6 Armbian images available anywhere or is there any documentation for this? I've just had a quick look at building Armbian and looked through the list of boards but I don't see anything that approximates an AW H6 TV box. There seems to be a general target for AW A20 boards and I can see a few OrangePi H6 boards but no tanex-tx6 / general purpose AW H6 TV box or whatever.
  5. Hi SteeMan I had already read that FAQ before my first post but I hadn't seen the second topic for the H6 specific builds so thanks for pointing that out!
  6. Do your latest images use this patch to enable the emmc for the tanix-tx6 dtb? It's not been mainlined yet: https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/blob/master/projects/Allwinner/devices/H6/patches/linux/0008-arm64-dts-allwinner-h6-tanix-tx6-enable-emmc.patch EDIT As someone who prefers to use the MATE desktop (mainly because of its more mature HiDPI support compared to XFCE) the Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_bullseye_current_5.9.0_desktop.img image currently works best for me as I can easily get MATE installed with the panfrost driver. Last night I got
  7. Hi balbes150 First, apologies for bombarding you with questions in this post but as you know this forum limits new posters to one post per day and I've amassed a lot of questions of the last few days. Thanks v.much for working on this very cool distro! I have tried various versions of your latest H6 images (such as Armbian_21.02.0-trunk_Aw-h6-tv_hirsute_current_5.10.9_xfce_desktop.img and Armbian_21.02.0-trunk_Aw-h6-tv_focal_current_5.10.9.img) but they all fail to boot on my T95 Max with a kernel panic / null pointer deref when it comes to running /init: ht
  8. I recently got a 2 GB RAM / 16 GB T95 Max TV box. I have been playing with the Armbian images from: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/12162-single-armbian-image-for-rk-aml-aw-aarch64-armv8 Are these the best / most up-to-date pre-built Armbian images for my box? I noticed that thread has been closed. I am aware this box is not officially supported by the project. The first issue I have encountered, and I presume this could also well be a general bug in Armbian although I have not confirmed by trying it on my supported BananaPi M1 yet, is that I am unable to in
