I recently bought a r2 board and was hoping to set it up as HTPC and a NAS(sharing media folder over nfs and samba) also use the ethernet ports to bridge the connection to other devices. but I’m not sure about going about to how to do this. Most of the images if found don’t fully support HDMI and the ones that do don’t have audio support. The most recent image I could find that supported both was here Unfortunately I couldn’t get it configured properly because on reboot it would automatically assign different IP address and vlc (or any other media player) not properly playing video files(audio only) I recently gave up on this image (and its HDMI support) and tried setting up the image I found from the Armbian website. I got everything set up but encountered a problem when streaming video from r2 to other devices connected to it. where the r2 would disconnect from the network I think? it was unreachable by ssh but other devices pugged into still have network. while doing research I found a thread on here about RPS but I’m not sure if this is related to my problem. also have this problem on the ubuntu image. after about 5 mins of streaming it gets interrupted and only solution is reboot. and since rebooting given me a different ip address I have to reconfigure the nfs shares on other device every 5 mins. so I gave up on that image.
any suggestions on which image I can use to properly set it up the way explained. or how I can get video and audio output on this thing so I don’t have to rely on streaming video over lan that disconnects every 5 mins
