NEO Z83-4: Ubuntu 18.04.01 Build

#45
Hi! I bought a minix z83-4u with ubuntu. It works fine after some few configurations. But when i stream Videos via wifi and hdmi, the Video laggs every 30-40seconds. I tried to reinstall the Intel drivers but the system says it is updated.
Are you able to hell me? Thank you!

My WLAN works fine, but ubuntu does not detect sound card??? Do not even see Dummy Output Any ideas?
I installed the ubuntu build listed on page 1. That allowed my WIFI to work, but sound is a no go. Tried
sudo alsa force-reload
and
sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio
sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio
And force reload Alsa again:
sudo alsa force-reload

Ubuntu still does not see sound controller?
I have a NEO Z83-4 Model Z834-6C1058
ran
alsamixer
says
Card: Intel HDMI/DP LPE Audio
and
This sound device does not have any controls.

So I tried this but it was never able to boot to it properly after I selected to the boot option it popped up with the install or try menu and after I selected 'install', the screen turn black and I assume that it had stopped giving a display signal

I initially had an HDMI to VGA cable and nothing plugged into the audio out stereo cable output. I moved the Minux over to the Entertainment center and plugged the HDMI into my A/V receiver, then it somehow detected/displayed the sound hardware devices. Works now, but I have to manually select the sound output each time. The default audio output selection does not work.

Hey John,

Is there a mirror for this file anywhere? I'm trying to download but it's estimating 5+ hours and is failing every other try. I'm on a fiber connection so it should be fast enough.

Thanks,
