How are you using your Tinkerboard?
#11
HAppy New Year fro Down Under.

I created a FoamBoard vintage Mac profile case to contain my 7" LCD screen and decoder ($40 AUD from e-bay), TinkerBoard/Raspberry Pi 2/3, battery (10000 mAh 2 x 5v/3A output) and cables. I'm using a USB powered Logitech K400 Plus keyboard/trackpad combo.

While this setup works fine for the lower powered RPi 2/3, I noticed periodic loss of video signal for a couple of seconds at random intervals. Today I added a second 5600 mAh battery which has 1 x 5V1A and 1 x 5V/2.1A USB outlets. Hooking up the second 5V/1A connector has solved the screen blanking issues.

Obviously as a more powerful system the TinkerBoard sucks just enough extra energy to cause power continuity issues. I would have used the extra 5V/2.1A outlet but it's flacky having being dropped once or twice.

Good news is I will have plenty of battery life to add powered speaker and TinkerBoard flies when compared to RPi3. Also TB immediately uses the LCD screens 1024 x 600 resolution, where RPi3 can only use 800 x 600 unless extra software is added.

Here is Perth Western Australia, I'm loving the speed and stability of TinkerOS 2.0 (Linaro). It seems just as good as RPi Pixel with a nicer desktop look - less fussy. The extra oomph and 2GB RAM really do make Web browsing a nice experience.

Cheers all, IAN

I bought the tinker board 1 week ago and now I'm using It for multiple porpuse. My board is always on with telegram bot, discord bot and Google assistant, and it's perfect *.* I used It for a modded Minecraft server too but there were many problems, probably cause of the I/O limit.

I bought it recently, with the intention to use it as a presentation computer, to display continuously in a monitor Libreoffice Impress presentations, videos, slideshows, etc.

I have two micro sd cards. One has Lakka on it for retro gaming and the other I installed Android on it and just use it as a media center.

I'm using mine to crunch some Seti@home workunits.

How long does it take to knockout a work unit?

I am building an install and test device for 1Gb internet. It is for my job, CATV installer, we need a way to reliably provision modems and test internet speeds. So far i have seen one speed test at 575mb/s download, upload 75mb/s, any one know what is the actual top speed of the lan and wifi?
