HDMI
#21
Thought I'd chime in and mention that I've been using a slightly older (as in I got it 2017) Anker USB-C to HDMI adapter that I originally got for my 2016 MBP.  I specifically wanted this adapter because it was the only one I could find at the time that supported 4K@60Hz; 30Hz personally gives me a headache after awhile for computer displays.

Since the nasty coffee spill onto its keyboard and the shelter-at-home mandates in my locale, I've been mostly docking the Pinebook Pro to a cheap-ish 1080p LG brand monitor along with a 2 computer USB KVM hub using the Anker adapter running Manjaro KDE.  It automatically mirrors the screen and I simply turn the brightness on the laptop down and it works fine for the most part.  I keep the lid open mostly since I think it doesn't work super consistently detecting the screen like my MacBook with the clam shell closed, and I can eyeball if the laptop screen is lit up. (I have a couple drilled-in IKEA particle board shelves mounted under my standing desk with plenty of clearance using galvanized steel pipe fitter tape or whatever it's called.  But it's out of the way and a cheap DIY solution to clear up my desk.)

Not sure if it's kosher to post Amazon Smile links, so feel free to delete or edit the post: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M...UTF8&psc=1

There's a newer version of the adapter available but I'm unsure of the differences.

I got the under desk mount idea here: https://www.ikeahackers.net/2017/07/15-u...mount.html

I went with about 18-inches of clearance so I could possibly put a small desktop tower under my desk, as I was eying the Dell T30 SOHO server at the time.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I haven't been able to get anything to output from the HDMI adapter other than 1080p@60Hz on either a 4K@60Hz computer monitor (doesn't work at all) and only displays 1080p@60Hz on my 4K@60Hz TV. The Manjaro display settings only shows one display and I can't change from un-mirrored mode (there's no option in UI). So it might either be me not knowing how to change the settings or just compatibility issues either with the OS or the adapter itself.
