    I flashed the 209 bios firmware and still cannot enter directly in Bios by pressing
    simultaneously "Power" and "Vol-" when the tablet is off.
    Any idea why?

    Dang, I have to update the BIOS to get in to it, I guess I'm screwed then as someone tried to install an x64 OS and it won't load past an error screen saying it isn't supported and so I can't really update the BIOS in the OS :(.

    Something I just discovered:

    My Studio Pen Pro has always given me ghost clicks in the bottom left corner.
    After removing the included stylus no more ghost clicks.

    Very interesting.

    I don't know what one thing has to do with the other, but I've always noticed that the activation range (i.e. when detected in hovering) for the pen is quite long; almost twice that of the Ativ 500t. Also, and this is most apparent on web pages, there is often an activity circle instead of a dot when I first pull out the pen to do something onscreen. As if it's constantly engaged in carrying out some action.

    Maybe this have been mentioned before: i you don't restart (cold start) your note 8, but only use sleep mode then you could turn hibernation off and save some space. With hibernation turned on i had 8.3gb free, with hibernation turned off i have 11.3gb free.

    to turn hibernation off use this text in an elevated command: powercfg /h off

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Plugable support! I'd be more than happy to assist you with this issue.

    Yes the UGA-165 will work with your tablet if you use an OTG cable.

    Unfortunately there is not a solution for charging for your tablet.

    Please don't hesitate to let us know of other questions.

    Thanks again for contacting Plugable support and best wishes!

    Some tips for artist that got problem with software like Sai Painting (you palm will move the whole artwork)

    - You can use a wacom tablet plug into your AVN8 with an otg, but you will notice that you will have ripple effects, it's because by default, Windows Ink is activated with the Wacom Tablet (plugged or not). If you lost pressure after installing the drivers, just discard all the Wacom preferences and it will work (you will find it on the start menu, start8 is your friend here ;3 )
    - Disable the touch screen on the material will make your tablet "pen only" which is awesome to draw of course ! I was stupid not thinking about it before...
