  1. Now we have NanoPi R4S. R2S was also USB -> GigE R4S is PCI-e to GigE NanoPi R4S (RK3399) 2x 2.0 Ghz + 1 GB / 4 GB 1x WAN, 1x LAN - = $45 (1GB) / $55 (4GB) 4x 1.5 Ghz Needs Metal case to keep temp under control. Geekbench 5 Single Core Multi Core Atomic Pi (Atom x5-z8350) 203 640 NanoPi R2S (rk3328) 113 350 NanoPi R4S (rk3399) 271 775 With a stripped down version of linux (debian, alpine, gentoo, void) its possible to make a quick router with the features of pi-hole, qos and logging/metrics. Just released OrangePi R1 Plus (rk3328) is similar to similar to NanoPi R2S (rk3328). Ryzen embedded, (x86-64) is ~$200 USD with drastically better performance, expand-ability and greater power consumption.
  2. Collabora released Wayland running on RK3399: https://www.collabora.com/news-and-blog/blog/2020/06/05/bifrost-meets-gnome-onward-upward-zero-graphics-blobs/
  3. Working on Wayland integration and would like a good starting point. Please post which boards work and specific test results. I'll keep the list updated. Board Overall GPU accelerated Desktop WebGL VPU encode VPU decode 4K@60 10-bit HEVC OpenGL ES 3.2 OpenCL 1.2 NanoPi TC4 ? OK NanoPi M4 ? Some freezing RockPro 64 OK OK X11 OK Chromium ? OK OK OK Khadas EDGE ? OK RockPi 4B Install failed ? ROCK960C ? OK last updated: 2020-06-01
  4. My company was able to get the datasheets.. Hope to open source the driver and image as soon as possible
  5. Been using Atomic Pi (x86) with OpenWRT for a while now AtomicPi 4x 1.44 (1.92) Ghz 2GB 1X LAN - = $30 Not dual native but.. Nanopi R2S is essential the same with integrated RTL8153 (USB 3.0 to Gig-E) $22 NanoPi R2s 4x 1.4 Ghz 1GB 1x WAN, 1X LAN - = $22 Since the AtomicPi has double the RAM and AES-NI - would stick with that but has slightly higher power usage and its x86 vs arm.

    The VPU driver

    Is V4L2 for rk3288 encoder mainline or is there a patch set?
  7. Did some more digging and even though its an "old" product, its still produced for OEM customers using it for current products. The HDMI-IN is via a HDMI-to-CSI chip, Toshiba TC358749 HDMI IN -> MIPI CSI -> RK3288 This explains why its implemented as a webcam in android. The CSI variant already has a linux driver in mainline : https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/drivers/media/i2c/tc358743.c
  8. everything's easy.. AFTER you've done it
  9. ffmpeg with hw encoding 1080p/60 (some stutter) working on stock debian image don't have my board at the moment. process was: 1) get orange pi linux sdk and debian image 2) pull armbian latest 3) diff debian config, cherry pick HDMI, audo, encoders 4) diff kernel, cherry pick hdmi, audio, encoders 5) compile and flash if you don't want to tinker and 1080p30 is sufficient @ H.264: https://www.inforcecomputing.com/products/application-ready-platforms/qualcomm-snapdragon-600-inforce-6420t is $99 and you get helpful support
  10. Found an old (2015) Ugoos UT3+ / UT3 Plus with an rk3288 - the neat thing about this board is it has HDMI-IN ! Also has PIP Specs: I'm was eventually able to successfully screen capture @ 1920 x 1080 ~29 fps using the Android 5.1.1 firmware V3.0.7 for UT3+ https://mega.nz/#!cQpl0ICS!8EgHddI3_PXQsSe-TSrkHfxdHCmkbckNWBYuLhfuA7w The firmware crashes frequently and the painful part is the IR remote is required to start recording.. so I'll be porting gentoo / armbian to this device to turn this paper weight into a linux friendly screen capture device. It maybe also worthwhile to document the process and create an armbian porting guide. Aside, for those interested, its worth to mention the LKV373A HDMI / ethernet sender is a potential $30 HDMI screen capture alternate.
  11. Anyone seen any Wayland demos / guides for ARM SBCs ?
  12. Yes, I've used older RK3288 STB with HDMI-IN. In the end, went with a server motherboard with IPMI. It may be possible to use the serial console and an arduino or pi
  13. Add Raspberry Pi 4 with USB 3.0 adapter! RTL8153 works OOB on linux Modem <-> SBC <-> Switch <-> Devices. 900+ with NAT on multiple SBCs.
  14. Haven't decided on a final config becuase theres more testing to be done. Easiest would be Atomic Pi (x86), your fav minimal distro and a USB 3.0 to Gigabit Adapter, about $50 shipped in the US (not including power supply) Cant recommend any MIPS / ARM boards because it requires backporting netflow to your kernel and/or SIMD optimization. If you can do that, you can find the boards from the specs listed above and take into account the state of firmware/software to make an informed purchase.
  15. Success! Using a minimal distro and an SBC with min specs: + dual core @ 1.8 Ghz + DDR4 I was able to get 850+ Mbps firewall with QoS! Tested multiple methods: - integrated NIC + USB 3.0 Gigabit adapter - integrated NIC + PCI-e NIC - dual PCI-e NICs. For under $50 and under 15W Used this guide https://blog.tjll.net/building-my-perfect-router/ as a starting point. Used unbound for local dns reslover and a few other changes to traffic shaping and metrics; using prometheus and grafana There's still room for improvement, get power under 10W and maybe closer to 5W-8W. Lower cost if there was a board with integrated dual gigabit NICs !!
