That is interesting about powered hubs stripping information.
The hub i use is the Insignia - USB3.0 4 port hub (model NS_PCH5431-C)
I did you the Serial Port Asssistant to get the path /dev/focuser.
I ran the assistant with both hubs and once directly to Stellarmate.

I dug up a D-Link - USB3.0 3 port Hub (model DUB-H4) which I do not use and tried it.
Ran the assistant and gave me the link “focuser -> ttyUSB0”

Ran KStar/Ekos remotely and connected to the device.

Great catch about the USB hub, I just learned another new thing today. Now I need to pick up
another 4+ hub this week (probably a D-link).

Thank you Jasem, freaky good call

Hello folks,

My first post to this forum after months of lurking. I was able to find solutions to most of my challenges. However, I am stumped on this.
Testing was done with/without a USB3 hub.

First, created a dedicated serial connection in INDI Web Server.

Stellarmate
4.9.78-v7+
Invoked KStars and Ekos
Pegasus DMFC connected to a Powered USB Hub.

Pegasus DMFC Tab - Device found and running on ttyUSB0

For completeness, when I connect this focuser to MacOs, I get an the address /dev/cu.usbserial-PA2GUZRV

This is not a show stopper, as I can still plug the focuser directly into one of the StellarMates USB ports, but the less devices on this box the better to avoid low voltage events. (changed cables and power wart and USB3 Hubs)

Ran log files for INDI & Focuser for both tests.

I am open to suggestions at this point.

Regards
