Helpful Hint: HDMI-to-DVI cables do not work on PINE64
This is a common problem with Allwinner H3 devices that are connected to a DVI monitor using a HDMI-to-DVI cable or HDMI-to-DVI adapter on Android and Linux (Ubuntu, Ubuntu Mate, Debian, etc.).

In other devices, we run the "h3disp" command from Armbian h3disp to tell the system to do special things to allow HDMI-to-DVI displays to work.  The relevant option is "-d" which enables some kind of magical HDMI-to-DVI adapter enablement.

I've confirmed that my own PINE64 system won't work with HDMI-to-DVI cable, so I have successfully remotely logged into it from the network, so I'm assured that the device and software are not faulty.

What's the equivalent of "h3disp" to enable HDMI-to-DVI adapters?  I don't want to replace my (almost) perfectly good DVI monitors just because of this.  Raspberry Pi works without any modifications, while Orange Pi One and Orange Pi PC all work fine when they're told how to use HDMI-to-DVI adapters using h3disp.  What do I need to do in order to make PINE64 work in this situation?

Thanks in advance.  Maybe it's a fex file modification?  I'm not sure.
