I've only tried it with atroberry yet, but at least with the default kernel of astroberry 2.0.4, ASIAIR <strong>Plus</strong> USB doesn't work.
The USB host controller for ASIAIR Plus is the Renesas uPD720201. This is not supported by astroberry.
To resolve this issue, you need to install the required firmware and rebuild the kernel with the changed settings.

 I have confirmed that Stellamate v1.6.2 has similar problems. If you encounter similar issues, you may be able to fix the issue the firmware on /lib/firmware/renesas_usb_fw.mem and rebuilding by applying the following settings to the kernel.

CONFIG_USB_XHCI_PCI = m
CONFIG_USB_XHCI_PCI_RENESAS = m

So far, this means that KStars can run from the ASIAIR Plus, but the power ports cannot be controlled, right? Does this mean that those ports still can deliver power but cannot be turned on and off?

Regards,

If you install the driver indi-asi-power you can control the power ports with the same functionality as the ASIAir app.

18 12 13 26 are the GPIO ports on the Raspberry Pi thatis at the core of the ASIAir. The config command enables those ports for output and switches them on.
I thought you would be able to use StellarMate on the QHY Starmaster without having to modify.

Can you install the indi-rpi-gpio driver? That wil let you control the GPIO pins but you will need to know which pins are used by Starmaster. That will let you control the power output.

I have the tech info from QHY company.

2 Port is 4 and 15

Now it is all working fine with Stellarmate OS 1.70

I have one also (asi air plus), gathering dust right now. I was playing with it, but so far it doesn't boot off of the SD since it has a CM4 compute module. It has to be reflashed (with a different carrier board), or need to find the pins needed to force boot off of the SD. (there are pins that say boot, but so far I haven't made it work)

Ill let you know what I find. There has to be a way in ASI air plus' carrier board to get it to boot off of the SD card. Even then, it's hard to say if the GPIO pins for the power outlets will be the same as the older ASI air units build around a Pi4. That being said, Im pretty sure there would be a good reason to keep them the same.

Ill get it working eventually, even if I have to buy a carrier board so I can flash stellarmate OS to the CM4's EMMC storage. Im done with "walled garden" devices and products so the AIR is useless to me until I get it working. :)

The reset button of ASIAIR Plus of CM4 model is connected to CM4's nRPI_BOOT. By connecting the ASIAIR Plus to a PC via USB-C and simultaneously pressing the reset button while powering on, it is possible to mount the eMMC of CM4 using rpiboot.
