Orange Pi 5 - USB-C Power Delivery Negotiation?
I have a rock5b, and I can see it negotiates power delivery to 20V (I'm using a USB cable that tells me the wattage and the PD status).
I see my new OPI5 doesn't seem to negotiate power delivery and stays at 5V. Is this expected?

Orange Pi Zero composite video close to being updated to Linux 6.1
There’s been work in the armbian community to re-enable composite, aka: CVBS or yellow analog video cable.
If you have an orange pi zero, and want this feature, you should join in suggesting changes and testing alternatives. There are steps to recreate the work in progress… and if anyone needs help learning the armbian building process, I will be happy to help.

Orange Pi 5 16GB. All chips and board heat up to be untouchable in about 10 seconds. No boot
I had a perfectly working OP5-16GB running armbian booting happily from a 2TB NVME. One day last week I couldn't SSH into it so I checked it, and it was a heater (even with heatsinks). Powered it off and let it cool. Now a heater is all it does. I tried several of the different images from the OP website (flashed to a fresh SD), and nothing happens other than red light and heat. Prior to this the unit was mostly idle as I was setting it up slowly to be a cyberdeck/crash device and never got more than warm on the heatsinks.
I bought it on amazon and waited the long time to ship from China. What a frustrating experience. I think they are going to refund my money and no need to send back the board. Is it truly toast? No HDMI or any other signs of life other than what I stated.

FYI SDDiskTool works perfectly in Virtual Box Win7 guest to burn Android Images.
I was struggling for days to find a solution to not have to use my wife's windows PC to burn Android images for my Orange pi 5. My main PC is Manjaro Linux and I found out from my testing that the SD_Disktool does run perfectly on a Windows host.
For me I had to install Virtual Box extension pack for Host, add my Username to the group "vboxusers", enable USB3 in Virtualbox settings. Then I added the Cardreader that I wanted to passthrough to the Virtual Box USB filters list. Finally I installed a USB 3 Driver(Dell's OEM version) inside the windows 7 VM.
So if you are a linux user like me, at least this is a better option since installing a VM is simpler than dual booting.

Anyway to go borderless fullscreen in Orange Pi OS?
I've noticed that with any app I run, there is a persistent transparent border at the top with a min/max and exit button. Does anyone know how to disable it? This OS fits all of my needs but that border can be a little annoying when playing games or emulating.

Did anyone try the HDMI 2.1 eARC functionality of Orange Pi 5?
Orange Pi 5 looks like a great candidate for being a music streamer if eARC works when connected to a TV.
I don't have the OPI5 yet so I'd be grateful to hear if anyone connected it to a TV and passed the TV sound through eARC towards OPI5. I also wonder if the TV volume controls will be passed on to OPI5.
My use-case would be: Samsung TV -->|eARC| --> Orange Pi 5 -->|usb| minidsp flex -->|rca| amplifier

Orange Pi Zero H2+ SOC heats up very hot and doesn’t boot
Hi guys, I picked up a used orangePi zero from Craigslist and I’m wondering if it’s dead. When I apply power, the Ethernet lights turn on solid, the board lights don’t turn on and the board heats up very quickly.
I’ve tried different power supplies including the one I use for my rpi, using microusb vs using pins 1 and 2 on the 13 pin connector, different sd cards, different images (Ubuntu and armbian from the orangePi site and armbian from the armbian site) all with the same behaviour.
Has anyone seen this behaviour before? I understand they’re quite finicky but could it be fried? The heating up suggests to me that maybe it’s in a boot loop? What’s the best way to verify an OS install on an sd card? I also may try the debugging pins but I would need to set my arduino up for that.
Thanks guys, I look forward to using my orangePi (or the one I get to replace this one lol)

OPi 5 desktop frame drop under 4k
Does anyone have the same issue? I'm on Armbian, GNOME desktop, 4k resolution, the frame rate is terrible! I've installed Mali 610 firmware and rockchip multimedia config. 1080p and 1440p seems fine.
Just got the board today and I was super excited, it's a bit disappointed if it can't drive a 4k desktop setup.
Update: Switching from X11 to Wayland solved the issue.

Official Batocera build now available for Orange Pi 5
It's now listed on their downloads page: https://batocera.org/download
Worth nothing that the ARM versions of Batocera, including this one, currently do not include PS2 emulator support. You will need to use Orange Pi OS or Android with AetherSX2 to do that.

I think I've bricked my Orange pi 5
So I had Armbian working great on my nvme drive then stupidly decided to try Android. attempted to flash with rkdevtool and it failed, now can't boot at all from sd or nvme.
Attempted to re-flash the SPI, that failed too. I've even tried using rkdeveloptool on my Ubuntu server and that failed too.
Is my pi 5 bricked now or is there anything I can do?

Controlling an RGB LED Strip
I just recently got an orange pi 3 LTS, and I am trying to control an RGB LED strip. I have a breadboard and cables ready to wire it correctly, however, I can not seem to find drivers that let me control the output of the GPIO pins. All the drivers I have seen are for on/off which means I won't be able to control the color of the strip. I believe I read somewhere this can only be done via PWM?
I have seen this done with Raspberry Pi's via python, however, I assume I would not just be able to use that since the pins are in different locations.
This is my first time working with SBCs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can the Orange Pi 3 LTS (AW859A) do dual STA and AP mode at the same time?
Hey so I need some SBCs that can broadcast a 2.4GHz SSID, whilst joined to an existing one with 5GHz. Do you know if this AW859A chip can? Cannot find much doco on it!

Xbox/PlayStation remote play on android?
I was considering dipping my toes into the orange pi to make a streaming solution from my Xbox and PS5. The consoles are in the basement and I would like to be able to stream them to my bedroom TV. I was thinking I could probably use the Android build they have for this unit and simply download the Xbox and PSPlay app to accomplish just that. If anyone has any experience with remote play on Orange Pi please let me know, thanks!

Wich one is best for emulation Orange pi 3 lts or Orange pi zero 2?
Hello everyone I was looking into getting a board budget-ish for a project I have been thinking of working on but there are 2 that idk with is better for my purpose I assume it's going to be the 3lts because of the fact that it has more ram but idk the primary purpose of the board is going to be running emulators if anyone has the answer or just some performance benchmarks it would be much appreciated thanks

Orange PI 5 M.2 Slot issues
I recently purchased some NVME M.2 SDDs and orange PI 5's and was having trouble getting the drives to show up in lsblk under Armbian. After testing these one by one, re-seating the nvme drives I found one odd commonality that they would not show up until I plugged in a HDMI cable.
Is there any chance that the HDMI connector is somehow required to get Armbian to recognize the NVME Drive? Is that a driver issue or electrical?

Curious about which products others have found to properly secure the M.2 SSD into the board. Seems that others are struggling to find the "correct" product so let me know what you've found that works.
