  1. If you want to do anything more complicated than a simple file/webserver then you're almost certainly better off sticking with raspberry pi. Hardware/software support & documentation for orange pi seems to be bad all around.
  2. Ok thanks. When you say 'after second boot', do you mean after rebooting, or do you actually mean that you need to reboot twice? Just making sure I understand By the way I had already read and re-read (several times) that 'advanced settings link', I even linked to it myself earlier in the thread.
  3. I have kernel 4.13.11 now, and I have a picture on the screen with my own TV, but still pretty much the same problem. The resolution is too big and not all of the screen is visible. I can't see the commands I'm typing in because they're below the bottom of the screen, so I still have to use ssh. How are you supposed to change the screen resolution? What are you meant to do? I've searched and searched and tried adding different things to /boot/armbianEnv.txt as instructed by pages from docs.armbian.com and even done some trial and error guess work, nothing is working, I'm comp
  4. Thanks. I've selected 'next' kernel from armbian-config and it seems to be installing. Will this make it possible to change the screen resolution? Edit: I've got a picture on the screen on my own TV now, thanks. But I'm not sure it's the right resolution. I might still need help on how to change the resolution. I'll do some testing and come back later
  5. I just noticed when it boots while connected to the other TV, at some point during boot there's a message which says "warning: bad CRC, using default environment", and so I guess that's why my attempts to change the display mode had no effect. Does anyone know what to do?
  6. I've just tried attaching it to an other TV, and it does work and displays text on the screen with that TV. The TV reports that the image coming from the OrangePiPC is 1360x768 at 60hz. So that suggests that all my attempts to change the video/display mode actually did nothing at all. It's not an acceptable solution to just use the other TV, it belongs to my roommate. Can someone please explain how to change the video mode? I've read these pages https://docs.armbian.com/Hardware_Allwinner/#how-to-reconfigure-video-output https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Fin
  7. Edit: Please see my second post in this thread. I think I've identified exactly what my problem is, please see my second post in the thread. I need to change the display mode to something that my own TV is able to display. But no matter what I've tried, I haven't been able to change the display mode. How do you do it? ---- Hello, I just got an Orange Pi PC. I installed using the Armbian_5.32.170629_Orangepipc_Ubuntu_xenial_dev_4.11.7.7z image. I'm able to log in through SSH, and I've installed all updates (apt-get update && apt-get upgrad
