  1. The rule of thumb is there is nothing free in the Internet you have to pay one way or another
  2. At its re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, AWS announced the launch of Arm-based servers for EC2. Prices are very close to t3 types. a1.large 2CPU/4 GB RAM - $0.0510 per hour ( ~$37 per month) t3.medium 2CPU/4 GB RAM - $0.0416 per hour (~ $30 per month) https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-ec2-instances-a1-powered-by-arm-based-aws-graviton-processors/
  3. I wouldn't say OSMC is better. It is different. And it probably fits better for some use cases but not for others. In general, OpenELEC is considered a dead project, LibreELEC can be a better option. It has a vibrant community and it is in an active development.
  4. 🤔The wrong part is probably that it does not work for me. I only see the message on a terminal window and armbian-config is in kinda a loop, it repeats it all the time.
  5. Hi, There is a fresh new install. armbian-config fails with a message "There are no targets. Please check your drives". BOARD=nanopineo BOARD_NAME="NanoPi Neo" BOARDFAMILY=sun8i VERSION=5.65 LINUXFAMILY=sunxi BRANCH=next ARCH=arm IMAGE_TYPE=stable BOARD_TYPE=conf INITRD_ARCH=arm KERNEL_IMAGE_TYPE=zImage System diagnosis http://ix.io/1sm3
  6. @guidol I suspected that but I've just received the confirmation from FriendlyArm So a Mini Shield can be used with a the model as well. I'm too lazy to copy-paste images here but when I tried to compare pinout diagrams of duo and duo2 there have been flipped upside down. So even an image editor would not help me to compare them. Check the images.
  7. @guidol I see. It makes sense. It is compatible with a shield board most likely. PS What a weird sense of humor 🤦🏻‍♂️ check out pinout diagrams of duo and duo2
  8. I don't get why there is Half-size SSD in options? (just a bug?)
  9. @NicoD Indeed. At least @odroid claimed they tested 32 GB and it worked.
  10. I think it can be a good option for a home server still. I'm probably wrong but seems like other motherboards in $130-180 price range only support up to 16Gb RAM.
  11. @tommy I doubt any SBC below $20 would provide an acceptable desktop user experience. Probably orange pi pc would be an option, but I've got no real experience with orangepi.
  12. @tommy the best sbc for what? What is your use case?
  13. @chwe "TV box with Linux" means TV box with Android?
  14. > still a mystery to me why people want Kodi on Linux @chwe just out of my curiosity what is a better option in your opinion?
  15. @Da XueI'm afraid you will have many complains about lack of SD card. I mean It would be good to have a big flashing banner >>[[ There is no SD card folks ]]<<
  16. @olivluca WG is my default for a few months, It is definitely faster but it is more CPU hungry on a server side. WG uses "modern" crypto primitives https://www.wireguard.com/protocol/ which means there is no hardware offload. Also if you are not on Linux it is an alpha quality software.
  17. Gigabit does not make sense. I'm afraid you will not get more than 20mbps out of your board. This is a very very optimistic expectation, 10 is a more realistic number. OpenVPN is secure but there is a significant overhead. Having a hardware encryption can make your board slightly faster probably, but definitely will make it cooler.
  18. This is exactly the reason why I think it is just a prototype or they have a different purpose (I hope not).
  19. I hope a media player experience will be improved sooner or later. @TonyMac32 I see only two holes for heatsink mounting (probably). I hope it just a prototype issue.
  20. Kickstarter campaign is about to start. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/librecomputer/390161934?ref=399083&amp;token=2af98f81
  21. @olivluca FYI I tested jellyfish-40-mbps-hd-hevc.mkv file on RPI3 and was not good. On the other hand, Le Potato plays h265 very well (LibreElec v8.90.005 ALPHA)
  22. @olivluca I'm sorry for your confusion. I'm not an expert. but from my personal experience if we are speaking about Linux-base Kodi player RPI is the best option so far. Allwiner support is at a very early stage still, Amlogic support is more mature but still experimental. I have got no Rockchip boards so far. I think it would be better to ask on a Kodi or LibreELEC forums.
