    The sound works on all models S9xxx, rk3399 , rk3328 , aw h6.
    Please note that to enable audio on g12 chips s922x s905x2 (models Ugoos AM6, Ugoos x2, Odroid N2 etc), you must follow the instructions specified in the first message.

    Added version kernel 5.5 (20191228), which runs on AML G12 , RK33xx and Allwinner H6. On s912, s905 and S905x chips, HDMI does not work.

    Nofan Tasi reacted to balbes150 in Plans for the development of Armbian-TV.   
    In the new year, I plan to focus on improving and developing Armbian-TV  (Armbian-TV is a version that is based on the official Armbian, aimed at improved support for media capabilities and ease of use by ordinary users) support for the platforms Rockchip and Allwinner  (perhaps a few more platforms will be added that are not yet in use). To do this, I have already ordered several popular models based on rk3399 (NanoPC T4, RockPi 4, Renegade-Elite), in a complete set with obligatory Support of nvme carriers (I consider this support essentially important, for transition of TV boxes and SBS to the category of mini-PC, as highly effective and improved replacement of the usual PC). I'm plan to buy several more models on Allwinner (I'm still evaluating the capabilities of the selected models). 
    I had plans to buy some more models based on rk3399 from other manufacturers, but there were problems with delivery and / or payment for my country.
     
    If anyone has any suggestions for models that I should consider, I'm willing to listen to reasonable descriptions of the models.

    This theme is designed to help potential users with the selection of equipment to run Armbian on TV boxes and other devices with ARM chips. I propose to leave here information about specific models, with a description of the technical parameters of the equipment, which specific versions of Armbian images and what settings or additional steps have been launched.
     
    Pay attention. In this thread are only a good or not run the system on specific models TV box. All discussions and questions, post in other topics.

    Starting from version 19.11.4, armbian TV supports Tanix TX6 with Allwinner H6 processor, 3Gb RAM, USB 3.0, LAN 100Mb, mali T720.
    Given that Panfrost has added support for the mali T720 (which is used in this model), it is a promising enough model to use.
    There are already Libreelec and Armbian for this TV box model.  
     
    + Eachlink H6 (Allwinner H6)   Hurry up to buy these models before the sellers learned about this possibility and raised the price ....

    Pay attention. This version changes the setting of the DTB for the Odroid models N2. Now all tuning principles are common to all models (files uEnv.ini and extlinux.conf). For models based on g12 (s905x2 s922), if you do not have the right color, you need to use the dual boot mode. To do this, use the SD card and add the "u-boot.ext" file to the Sd card. You can download this file from the site or rename an existing in  image u-boot.new to u-boot.ext.

    You can "thank" AML for this.

    They broke the u-boot. They put a bunch of crap in it that works exclusively with their old and crappy 4.9 core. For the color to work correctly with the 5.4 kernel, you either need the old u-boot-2015 (from the firmware, before AML broke it) or use u-boot-2019 (removing u-boot-2015 completely).
     
     
    Offtopic. The behavior of AML lately has been increasingly frustrating for me. They do not pay any attention to the development of support for their chips in the main core (this work is done by third-party developers). Instead of helping, their new patches create a bunch of problems for the main kernel. I am waiting for the release of new Rockchip chips (or other platform options other than AML), and I hope to completely switch to using them for my development (minimizing support for AML, limiting myself to the chip models I already have).

    The build and publication of unified test images with a common core for the Rockchip Amlogic Allwinner platform begins.

    Please note that the DTB configuration order has changed.
    Now a single configuration method is used for all Rockchip Allwinner Amlogic platforms. The file (uEnv.txt) is used for configuration DTB all platforms. 
    Now a single configuration method is used for all platforms, using the file (uEnv.txt). You need to edit this file to configure it. You need to uncomment the two lines that are responsible for your platform and specify the correct DTB for your model. If you use this image to run on the one platform, you can delete it from the settings file (uEnv.txt) strings from other platforms.
     
    Pay attention.
    The installation algorithm in eMMC has changed. My recommend that you perform a clean installation in eMMC. Be sure to make a full backup of eMMC before installing it in eMMC.
    The system installation scripts in eMMC have changed accordingly. If you have a system with eMMC core 5 installed on RK33xx, it is advisable to perform a clean installation in eMMC to upgrade to the new version. 
     
    For the aw H6 platform, all scripts are already in the image (which have the ending aw). You need to rename the files with the replacement (remove the .aw ending).
     
    For this purpose, the universal multiboot for AML has been updated. For the system to work correctly on AML, you need to update the multiboot.
     
     
     
    Fix for correct color to G12
    For models based on g12 (s905x2 s922), which have a problem not the correct color , to SD card to write the image and rename u-boot.sd to u-boot.ext, to USB to write the image and rename u-boot.usb to u-boot.ext

     Please note, this version for the transition to the release of a single image for the platform Rockchip + Amlogic + Allwinner. The new image after writing to external media and after configuring the used dtb (and if necessary adding the desired u-boot option to run from the SD card on the Rockchip and Allwinner) can be used simultaneously on AML (s9xxx), RK (rk3399 and rk3328) and AW (H6). If the TV boxes RK (rk3328 and rk3399) and AW (H6) in eMMC installed a new version of u-boot  with support for starting the system with USB, adding u-boot to SD card is not required, the system will automatically start on with USB.
     
    Important change. With this version (>= 20200218), you can easily add the desired u-boot on any PC (including Windows) .
     
    To do this, new versions of u-boot are downloaded on the site.
     
    https://yadi.sk/d/lTbXkrmZN5Hf6g
     
    Rules for using the new u-boot option. Download, Armbian image, unpack. Write image Armbian to the SD card. Download and write the desired version of the u-boot file to SD card. Configure the DTB and the launch string (APPEND) in (uEnv.txt) for the desired model\platform.
     
    Pay attention. Now you don't need to write u-boot with complex commands, you write the u-boot image with the same program as you usually write an Armbian image. This allows you to configure the system to run (including writing a u-boot image) on any PC (including Windows).
     
    Pay attention. The new version changed the size of the partitions that are obtained when writing an image (all images have a fixed size of 5GB).  This u-boot entry option only applies to the new version 20200218 and subsequent versions. Don't try this for old images. This will not work on older images.
     
    OLD add u-boot
     
     
     
    For RK33xx
    if you have windows and can't use the add u-boot commands to the SD card, use the SD+USB combination , write only the new u-boot to the SD card, and write the Armbian image to a USB storage device. And connect them together to the TV box.
     
    To turn on the sound on models AML where it is not present after the initial start. You should try removing PULSEAUDIO.
    Command (sudo apt remove pulseaudio) and restart the system.
    On g12 models, in addition, after removing PULSEAUDIO, you need to run the script (sudo /root/g12_sound.sh).
     
     
    The start system in Coreelec is not compatible with LibreELECE  Armbian  etc. If you run coreelec on your TV box, you will no longer be able to run LE and Armbian normally until the full recovery of the standard firmware via the USB Burn Tool and the new activation of the universal multi-boot, which is used in all new systems.

    The results of the first tests on Ugoos x2pro. First impressions are very positive. This model has support for all hardware (including WiFi) on the new core 5. Heating under load (full-screen video via browser) does not exceed 53 degrees. Given that the Android firmware for Ugoos models is considered one of the best, it is a good option for use at home both for working with media content and as a mini PC. And for those who need maximum performance - AM6 with s922x.
