Can not connect to my QHY CFW3 was created by ezwheels

I can't connect to the QHY CFW3 filter wheel. I reset the manufacturers button to connect via USB. I know it is getting power but the System port scan only shows Bluetooth and an option via my phone. Hopefully it is just a configuration issue I have incorrect.
This is the same for 3.1.0 and 3.0.0

I downloaded and installed the updated Silicon Labs VCP driver and now when I type ' ls /dev/tty* 'it shows up in the OSX Terminal as a connected device and also shows up in the Connection options tab in EKOS, but it still fails to connect. It says the Firmware must be higher than 201409. When I connect the filter wheel it to ASCOM it says the Firmware is 20181114. Same issue is in 3.0.0 and 3.1.0

So if you cannot update the firmware, try using QHYCFW2 driver.

That works!

I am not sure why and hopefully it is an easy fix on your end, but thanks for the suggestion. I had tried using this driver in the past but that was before updating the VCP drivers.

edit: It does not remember the number of filter slots whenever I reconnect it. I set it at 7 and then save configuration, after I disconnect and reconnect it returns to 5.

Also, I noticed in the log above that handshake is spelled "Hankshake". I roughly know what "handshake" is, but I have never heard of a "Hankshake" when trying to pair devices. Could this have something to do with why it would connect?

Any idea how I get a "git" on the osx version? Or do I wait for it to be included in the next version of ekos?

If you don't feel comfortable compiling stuff yourself, wait for KStars 3.1.1, it's almost ready.

I just downloaded and installed 3.1.1. CFW3 still will not connect. Spelling error for Handshake is corrected, but it gives a Timeout error and says I need aFirmware higher than 20149. CFW2 wheel connects immediately, but now only recognizes 5 slots. This CFW3(M) size wheel can be configured with 5 slot 50mm or 7 slot 36mm. I have the 7 slot version.

Unfortunately there is no longer a max filter option in the INDI control panel for the CFW2 driver.
