remote 1080 console reset

Post by philcdav » Wed 30 Aug 2017 3:38 pm

I had a usb lock recently and wondered if this fix might work?

In the event of a lock the USB connection and the power need to be disconnected.
What I would like to try is doing both these tasks remotely over the network.

I have the power reset working using an Arduino controlled relay breaking the battery supply.

Has anyone done similar with the USB connection please?

Would this kit work ? https://www.yepkit.com/products/ykush

Any comments or feedback please.

I have an Oregon WMR100 connected to an USB port on a Raspberry PI 3 running Cumulux MX. The first months I lost connection 2-3 times a month, but after installing a powered HUB between the two devices (advice from this forum) I have had no problems for 3 month.

put a Powered USB Hub between your Console and Device, this should help with USB connection issues. Adding Ferrite cores to the USB cable can help too.
