Re: USB-C Hard drive array with Pi 4

as the port is thunderbird3 on the G-speed, you'll need a good quality USB-C to USB3.0 cable to be able to connect your G-speed to RPi4B. do note that the transfer rate may not be as specified due to the difference in thunderbird3 and USB3 specifications. the G-speed need to be self powered (not dra...

Re: PI 4 USB audio clicks/pops

is the RPi board and USB DAC powered by the same power source?
if so, have you tried separate power sources for each?

Re: USB charging hub for Pi 4 recommendations

Get a USB hub that can output at least 2.4A per port.
and the output voltage fairly stable at 5v (not dipping below 4.7v at any instantaneous time)

in my case.... I'd just make one myself.....

your choice of cables may also have an effect on your setup

Or you can probably revert to an earlier kernel, but I don't know the runes for that.
Easiest route back to 4.19.118 is sudo rpi-update e1050e94821a70b2e4c72b318d6c6c968552e9a2.
Thanks DougieLawson! You're a life saver! :D
