INDI Library v1.7.9 Released (23 Jun 2019)

INDI Library v1.7.9 is mostly a maintenance release to fix a few bugs in several drivers.

Still same ASI1600MM USB3.0 issue. Can't seem to figure it out.

My theory is that this issue occurs on some combination of SOC (system-on-chip) hardware and kernel versions. I have experienced USB issues with ODroid before (even with USB 2.0) and it was due to kernel issues. It could be some hardware issue in the board itself, or kernel issue, or a combination of both. Power is usually the first culprit when such unstable operations are encountered but if power is ruled out, then in my opinion, it's SOC+Kernel issue.

Hi all yep I think wouter had hit it on the head. A few weeks ago I did an update to Ubuntu and all of a sudden usb3 worked.

Another update 4 days ago and usb3 is shot again. Usb2 still works.

Only problem is how does one update anything without breaking something.
Lots of trial and error, mainly error, but in hindsight, it was easy!!!

what did you update, kernel or some packages?
The kernel of these ARM boxes are not updated often.
For packages, you can easily find out which one are related to usb like libusb

I'm running an Intel compute stick amd64 SOC running full Ubuntu 16.04lts desktop. So doing a
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade does everything.

My Asus tinker board in armh and as you say the kernel is not upgraded very often.
Lots of trial and error, mainly error, but in hindsight, it was easy!!!

New update:

NanoPC T4
USB3 port -> USB2.0 cable -> CEM60 Hub -> USB2.0 Cable -> ASI290 mini
USB2 port1 -> PL2302 USB to COM -> CEM60 com
USB2 port2 -> USB3.0 cable -> ASI290MC Pro

Capture 200S X 12, -12C, with guiding on, works good.

So I can give the result that:
Only true USB 3.0 connection will cause problem.
The USB2.0 cable will not lead to USB3.0 driver working, even on the USB3.0 port.
The MC Pro camera with non-power USB hub will cause problem.
The problem is complexity, it may be some memory leak of the USB3.0 driver, and also the MC Pro camera is sensitive to the USB power.
