Hi, I bought an Orange pi zero H2.
I do not know how to connect it to a display or tv?
There is only 13 PIN connector on the board.
How can I connect it, do I need an extension board, cable und what?
Thank you in advance!!!

You have some options here. First this has an optional expansion board. You can buy it here for $1.99 and shipping. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ ... 56.6.68a27fddxlPfhW

Second, you could connect via debug port in command prompt.  You will need a USB debug cable. https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... 1_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Third, you can connect via SSH using IP network and 'pUTTY'(Softwear) or something.  

fourth, you can use a micro USB cable to connect to a PC and log in that way. Instructions are in the user manual. https://drive.google.com/drive/f ... 452M99UWbEqzvVtehpo

Or you can just setup the TF card/MicroSD card and add all the settings in the start up files via notepad type editor or nano editor in linux.  https://drive.google.com/drive/f ... 452M99UWbEqzvVtehpo

Here is a link to the user manual.  It helps if you read through it clearly.   https://drive.google.com/drive/f ... 452M99UWbEqzvVtehpo

Friend me. Let me know how it goes if you wish.

Thank you very much! YOU HAVE A NICE DOG.
I thought that it has a hdmi port and I can plug it to a display and use it like an andriod pc, to browse the internet for example. I do not want to connect it to a pc and to program it. But now I realized  that is not so easy.
I saw the extension board, bit it has not  ALSO hdmi or another port to connect the pi to a display or tv.What can I do?
Thanks!!!

MM..   What will you do with this?  Watch Videos?  Browse the web?  Practice programming?  

I don't know if you can use a USB to HDMI or not. But they do make these cables to convert an existing USB to HDMI.; https://youtu.be/5Urco-ABMFw

I have the Orange Pi 3 and it has good power for things like that.  Running ARMBIAN OS.

I also have the Orange Pi PC 2 and it does things like video but it's pushing it's limits.  Running ARMBIAN OS.


Funny we used to have 133mhz processors, 32 megs of memory using 256k video cards and watch videos.  8-)  But these SBCs are running larger Operating systems and need lots of power and memory.  There are stripped down OSs that might make a better video machine from a low power computer.  I can't say I know of any but I have seen OSs that seem to be minimal installs.

AVCOM

  Ok.  The Orange Pi I have used are Orange Pi PC 2 and Orange Pi 3 to browse the web.  Orange Pi PC2 browses but the video in ARMBIAN on videos needs to be lower res.  The podcasts in audio stream fairly well.

Orange Pi 3 with ARMBIAN OS is a fairly useable webbrowser and does video well.  I listen to YouTube and watch videos in my garage via WiFI.

As I do not use ANDROID, I can't say how well it does video on other devices or these.

The Orange Pi one will browse the web. But it needs more meory to be more effecive. It trips in places.  But it is streaming audio from NPR radio.
