      Re: ThumbDV and Buster on mac os Sierra - doesn't find USB port

      Kenny Richards
       

      Shawn,

      Which version of Buster do you have installed? Is it the latest? Jeremy pushed an update a couple weeks ago, which included some fixes and was built against the latest SDK.

      ThumbDV and Buster on mac os Sierra - doesn't find USB port

      Shawn Goodin
       

      The subject says it all.

      I received my ThumbDV today, and it works fine under Windows 10 with WinDV.

      I'd like to use it on my Mac though, running Sierra (10.12.5).

      Per the NW Digital web site, I did not install any FTDI drivers.

      I have verified that the driver is loaded via kextstat - see output below:
      MacPro:dev shawng$ kextstat | grep FTDI
        106    0 0xffffff7f81e2a000 0x6000     0x6000     com.apple.driver.AppleUSBFTDI (5.0.0) 51DB3F7C-B15A-3FD2-B57D-58547464BF8A <105 19 5 4 3 1>

      But, no matter what I do, I cannot select any serial port in the pulldown in the Buster preferences.
      Any suggestions?

      Shawn

      Is there any chance that a Linux build of the Blue DV program will be forthcoming at some point?

      I have been trying to help Alun out since i sold him the dongle, never had problems with Win7 or Mac (buster) and not used Win10 but as your suggestion is to use an early version which was written for the blue dongle, would that work with Win10
      I guess if so the best version would be V1.04 
      Would this work, has it been tested with Win10?

      I solved the problem as follows:

      1. Pull the dongle out of the USB port and start up windv.
           ( If your issue is the same as mine it should start up ok )
      2. Go into your settings and make sure the baud rate is set correctly.
           ( It should be 4xx,xxx ... Something ... Look it up )
      3. Shut the program down with the new settings.
      4. Plug in your dongle and restart. Everything should work great.
