Inrush current? 2018-02-24T02:01:53Z 2018-02-23T21:09:21Z r10kindsofpeople r10kindsofpeople I'm trying to use your Bluetooth dongle with a TI AM335x processor (like the Beaglebone, only not) running Linux. If I plug the dongle in after boot, everything's fine. If I plug it in before boot, many (not all) times, the processor disables power to ALL the ports on the same USB hub as the dongle. Yes, it may be an AM335x or hub problem (although the hub is powered), but I've tried all their solutions with no joy, and it only appears to happen with this part. USB memory sticks, WiFi adapters, and many other devices don't seem to trigger the same problem. So guess who gets the blame ;) If I hardwire the USB port (with the dongle) to 5V, no problem. <br /><br /> I've tried more than one, so it's not just a bad dongle. question 1 2 1 comment 7692975 express card to 2-port USB 3.0 with extra power supply 2018-02-24T01:20:47Z 2018-02-24T00:18:39Z itt788 itt788 I have an express card with an ASM1042 chipset inside leading to 2 usb 3.0 ports with a 2 mm DC power socket for extra power. Despite powering in it with an 1 A, 5V supply it seems that it's failing working with two hard drives plugged in. Once the second is plugged in, the first spins down and up and down again repeatedly. question 1 2 1 comment 7692989 UGA-165 Adaptor & External Monitor Issue 2018-02-24T01:11:03Z 2018-02-24T01:11:03Z Josie Minick josie_minick When using a UGA-165 adapter to connect my Lenovo Thinkpad T530 to my external Dell monitor, the screen either flashes repeatedly (if I extend the display) or simply shows a still image (if I duplicate the display).

I seem to have very little control over zoom and focus. I also have a resolution of 160 X 120 showing on the viewer. <br /> Does anyone have any recommendations? Are there real instructions posted anywhere? question 1 1 1 create 7688538 Transfer files while one computer is connected to VPN? 2018-02-23T21:05:57Z 2018-02-16T17:38:28Z Dan Rybij dan_rybij I want to transfer files between two computers while one of them is running VPN software to my workplace. As a security measure the VPN software prevents routing to the local network where the other computer resides. Will I still be able to use the Plugable cable and Bravura software to accomplish this? <br /><br /> Essentially, if the cable emulates a network connection this will likely not be possible. question 2 2 1 comment 7692733 Plugable UD-ULTCDL Constantly needs to be reset for 4k monitor 2018-02-23T21:02:51Z 2018-02-23T16:42:06Z Logan logan_tarbox I've been using my UD-ULTCDL for three monitor display and everything has been working well except for the third monitor that's plugged into the HDMI 4K port. 90% of the time after I lock my computer and walk away, when I come back and wake up the monitors the 4K one does not come back up. Display Settings on my laptop recognizes the monitor and thinks it's working, but the monitor reads No Input. The only way to fix it is to power cycle the dock and then the monitor comes back up. <br /><br /> Any suggestions on how to fix this? Laptop is a new HP Spectre x360 13t. problem 1 2 1 comment 7692404 TBT3-UD1-83 Thunderbolt 3 audio stopped working 2018-02-23T20:42:47Z 2018-02-23T01:36:15Z Kim Stolmeier kim_stolmeier I have an audio cable connected from a house receiver to the audio on the port and it has been working fine since I purchased the port November 2017 on Amazon. Today it just stopped working for no apparent reason. I disconnected the cable and replugged it in and still did not work. I took the same cable and connected it to the audio on my laptop and it worked fine so it seems to be the port. The port is too new for this failure. problem 3 2 1 comment 7690736 Music and audio cutting out when using USB 2.0 adaptor 2018-02-23T20:18:02Z 2018-02-20T16:14:03Z Kevin Brooke kevin_brooke Hi, <br /><br /> I am using a PLUGABLE USB 2.0 BLUETOOTH ADAPTER, on windows 7, 64 bit.

I was able to have a full 1920x1080 display on a 2nd monitor using my Plugable. <br /><br /> Now something has changed, and I don't know what. But I can only get 1024x768 resolution on the 2nd monitor now. Even in the Chromebook display settings, it shows 1024x768 as the highest it will go. <br /><br /> Any idea what I can do to get 1920x1080 display back? <br /><br /> Thanks, <br /> Eric question 1 2 1 comment 7684635 Dock for HP Spectre x360 13t Convertible 13-ae005na 2018-02-23T18:06:45Z 2018-02-10T10:03:28Z Phil phil_6769079 Hi <br /><br /> I just purchased the HP Spectre x360 13t Convertible 13-ae005na, and would like to get a dock for it. the laptop has 2 USB-C ports and 1 USB3-SS A <br /><br /> My requirement is to have an External Monitor, my current Monitor has DVI-D and HDMI ports, although I may likely move to a 4K monitor in the future. <br /><br /> Not sure if a second monitor could be supported which would be a nice option but not essential. <br /><br /> I would also like the 1Gb Ethernet connected Via the Dock <br /><br /> And I would like to charge through the Dock (without using the HP charger if possible), have Keyboard and wireless mouse adaptor, and have the Audio out currently using a 3.5mm jack, and the ability to plug USB stick, tablet and/or SD card (or USB adapter for SD card) <br /><br /> Could this also support an External HDD too <br /><br /> I do not have gaming requirements of this setup. <br /><br /> Is that possible and which Dock would you recommend? <br /><br /> Thank you! question 7 3 1 comment dock 7692450 windows 10 - three monitors - no icon to control displays 2018-02-23T04:13:24Z 2018-02-23T04:06:47Z James R Brown james_r_brown The standard Intel graphics display app does not know that I have three monitors in use, but I cannot find an icon to bring up changes for position, resolution or rotation <br /><br /> Windows 10 /Dell Inspiron 14R <br /> Pluggable USB 3.0 model ud-3900 problem 1 1 1 create
