Pinephone convergence dock issue.
I have the Pinephone beta edition with convergence.

When I connect the Pine64 dock to the Pinephone, no matter what OS I am running, the Phosh shell reports the phone is undocked. I get HDMI output and USB connectivity but the OS detects the phone as undocked.

This behavior started when I connected a Dell M-UVDEL1 optical USB mouse to the dock's USB port. Connecting the mouse and moving it causes HDMI to disconnect and once caused the dock to make a weird noise.

Is there a fix or workaround for this, or is it possible that my dock is defective/damaged?

Thank you for your help!

EDIT: This behavior occurred because I did not power the dock via USB-C, after powering the dock using the USB-C cable that came with my Pinephone, it works as expected. This issue is solved. Smile
Mine does the same thing (Phosh on Mobian). As far as I can tell it seems to just be a cosmetic issue, but I don't use the HDMI port. USB works for mouse and keyboard, and the ethernet adapter work OK, but the Phosh indicator shows status as undocked.
Running mobian bookworm with the docking bar, plugged into a nexdock, and it shows that I am docked. I'm using the HDMI, a mouse connection and a keyboard connection. It's hooked up as if it's separate monitor and keyboard.
Pinephone beta edition, convergence model, Mobian Bookworm with Phosh.
