Re: PiDV, AMBEserver and Buster

Ted Huston

I am successfully running Buster under Catalina but the thumb drive must be plugged directly into a computer port, not an extender.  Also make sure you don’t have an FTDI conflict.

Anna, the Author of Buster, is aware of the issue and hopes to get to it this month.

I’m also a Mac/Catalina user. I moved my ThumbDV to a Pi and run Ambeserver, then Buster can access the ThumbDV over the network.

Works great and I can run it from any Mac in the house or even over the Internet!

I'm on OSX Catalina 10.15.4 I can advise that Buster does not work on MacBook on my brand new ThumbDV arrived today.  I get the error message "Vocoder not found" in Buster preferences window and a "No serial connection" error when I start Buster.  This is despite the Thumb DV showing up in Mac OSX System Report (and the Thumb DV works fine in the same MacBook, when I run Parallels and Windows 10. Odd. Here's what the Mac System Report says:



  Product ID: 0x6015

  Vendor ID: 0x0403  (Future Technology Devices International Limited)

  Version: 10.00

  Serial Number: D307T3AG

  Speed: Up to 12 Mb/s

  Manufacturer: NW Digital Radio 03/20

  Location ID: 0x14300000 / 1

  Current Available (mA): 500

  Current Required (mA): 200

  Extra Operating Current (mA): 0

Hoping there will be a solution for Mac Catalina at some point in the near future.
