Pinephone USB-C Docking Bar (Amazing !!)
An update to me earlier post.

Occasionally I like to give the HDMI docking a try to see if anything has changed. Today it paid off, everything is working. I have to assume that my issues mentioned earlier were software issues. I'm now using debian bookworm, which is guaranteed to change many things.

I just plugged my pinephone into my Samsung tv today and it worked. I found that the 'single display' setting with the tv as the 'primary display' to be the best settings. I did find that the pinephone was not able to handle youtube video playback on a 1980x1080 screen very well. Still, it's quite amazing to have my phone apps available on a large screen.

My usb mouse worked well from the docking bar, and the onscreen keyboard (enabled under Accessibility) worked fine.

A big thank you goes out to all the devs that were able to make this work so well.

The funny thing is that it works fine plugged it into my Desktop PC.

So I ordered another docking bar (Anker PowerExpand 6-in-1) at Amazon and this one works fine now.
I use it with mouse + keyboard connected by USB and the monitor connected by HDMI.
In addition there is a PowerUSB-Plug to load the phone in parallell ( <- not perfect but usable).

Maybe this will help one or the other "PinePhone-warrior" Wink having the same problem Wink

Thanks, AndrewBlackmiller

Andrew confirmed that the:

(Anker PowerExpand 6-in-1)

works with PinePhone KDE edition.

We can confirm that Gembird USB Typ-C

does not work with PostmarketOS. And we can confirm that the Aliexpress multi adapter does not work either with PostmarketOS:

There where other reports that a similar device with multi function does not work either.

The PINEPHONE USB-C Docking Bar «works with postmarketOS Community Edition and newer out-of-the-box»:

The  PINEPHONE USB-C Docking Bar has a PINE 64 logo on it.

Is it a Pine64 open source developement?

We saw a very similar model from a swedish shop with no Pine64 logo on it, but only in the swedish shop and nowhere else.
