  1. I can't get Arbian to boot on my Scishion V88 Piano box. I can get it to boot with the latest LibreElec nightly. Ethernet even works. I didn't try wifi. Can I copy the dtb from LibreElec and use it to boot Armbian? Just copy it into the /dtb directory on Armbian, update extlinux.conf and boot? i see LibreElec and Armbian are both using the same kernel version so I'm thinking this should work. Can anyone confirm? Only one way to find out I guess. I'll try this weekend and report back but if someone has experience with this, it would be appreciated. Thanks, Rob
  2. Ok, thanks. It's not showing up with any of the DTBs I tried.
  3. I have my V88 Piano box booting using the 09092018 image but I'm trying to get wifi working. How can I tell if the onboard wifi is being recognized? Is there something I can look for in dmesg? I'm not seeing anything in network setting that would tell me there is a wifi device configured.
  4. Thanks balbes150. I'm going to try this on the RK3328 boxes I own as soon as I get a chance. I'll report back. Do you have a collection of dtb's for RK3328 boxes anywhere? Thanks, Rob
  5. Thanks for reminding me. I just sent a note to Gearbest to let them know that I know that they know that they're not getting away with this!
  6. Yes, it is fake. The connection is only 100Mb and has been confirmed by a couple of people. It still gets my vote though but that's because I already own one.
  7. I second the suggestion for the Scishion V88 Piano. With 4GB of RAM and USB 3.0, it has a lot of potential (even though they did do a bait and switch on the advertised NIC speed). Thanks for your consideration!
  8. Thank you Segv for the info. Are you running the Piano headless? I'd like to run Kodi on the box and also have it running a NFS and SMB server as well. Just curious if audio and video are working under Armbian.
  9. Sorry, I haven't had much time to play with it over the holidays. Maybe in the new year.
  10. Finally received my SCISHION V88 Piano box. I was able to burn the DietPi image for Rock64 to a micro SD card, place it in the micro SD slot, apply power and it booted up to a login. The ethernet showed up as eth0 but I couldn't connect to anything. Wireless also wasn't working. I'm not sure what else is broken.
  11. It's in the first post in this thread. https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/linux-build/releases/download/0.4.0/xenial-mate-rock64-0.4.0-63-armhf.img.xz I also tried the DietPi image for ROCK64 and that worked well too. I loaded a Libreelec image and it booted but there was no sound. Probably needs the correct device tree.
  12. Sorry, I put the wrong box. It's this one SCISHION V88 Mini III TV Box RK3328- 2/8GB 2.4 WiFi Fast Lan. https://www.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_680984.html
  13. Say man, I have SCISHION V88 mini II RK3229 TV Box. I loaded the ROCK64 Ubuntu Mate image on a mcroSD card and it booted up without doing anything. No toothpick, no standing on my head, no nothing. Ethernet worked until I upgraded the kernel. Or maybe it was because of the reboot. Not sure. The MAC address of the NIC changes with every reboot. So I plugged a USB ethernet adapter into the USB 3.0 port and I had network connectivity again. I was able to run Subsonic and Samba/NFS on it to make it a media and file server with decent throughput due to the USB 3.0 port. For under $30, not a bad little box and things will only get better when/if a proper device tree is available for the box. Well now that I think of it, the box was $30 but if you add another $10 for a USB NIC and another $10 for a USB 3.0 hub, it loses it's appeal as a cheap NAS.
