I've got a new ASIAIR Pro paired with the ZWO ASI120MM Mini camera w/30 mm guide scope) but the app won't find the camera - dropdown choices are none/empty (see attached image). I did learn that the non-mini ASI120MM/MC is officially not supported per the ZWO website, but that's not my problem. I purchased this setup as a kit, and many others do have it working just fine. I'm stumped. I've verified the camera/cable works by hooking it up to PHD2 - no problem there.  I've verified power output from the ASIAIR Pro usb2 ports (and tried all 4 of the USB2 and USB3 ports). No luck. I just can't get the app to recognize the camera in the dropdowns. I've also tried running this from my android phone as well as an iPad - same results. Lastly, trying with the ASIAIR Pro via wifi or connected to the home network doesn't make a difference. Nor did restarting any/all components of the setup.  

 

So, does anyone have some advice about how to get the ASIAIR Pro app to find the ASI120MM Mini camera? Thanks in advance.

Negative - the ASI120MM Mini is supported (it's the non-mini version that has been dropped). But I appreciate the reply. Supported products shown below.  In fact, this is a popular newbie setup and is sold as a kit. I have to be doing something wrong.
