Port Adapters for PBP — Ethernet, HDMI, etc.
@neilman, that's what I would like to know. Ideally we would get all of these in the docking station / USB hub;

  • Powered docking station / USB hub
  • Power to Pinebook Pro from docking station / USB hub
  • DisplayPort, (but from the Pinebook Pro, not USB video)
  • Some USB3 ports, (probably a minimum of 4 USB ports, but some could be USB2 or USB-C)
  • 1Gbps, (or faster), Ethernet

All the peripherals, like USB3 ports & Ethernet would be powered from the docking station / USB hub.
A USB 2 or USB-C port would be nice also, but not necessary for me.

I was planning on doing some research into USB-C and alternate modes for DisplayPort. From what little I understand, USB-C supports 1, 2 or 4 lane DisplayPort, not including the USB2 pins. So, its possible that a docking station could be made that does what I want.

If it turns out no one makes one, and what you / I want is possible with the Rockchip RK3399, then perhaps Pine64 could be convinced to make a companion docking station.
