Has any used a USB extender?
I am just now starting to look at them and know very little about them. My mount (AM5) and accessories are all ZWO products (ASIAir, ZWO EAF and ASI2600duo). I am getting a lot of reconnect messages using the AsiAir app and system hang-up's using my laptop/remote desktop, ethernet cable and Mini-PC mounted on the scope so I am trying to find some way to get my mount and accessories connect to my laptop without using the ASIAir app/bluestack or remote desktop (using the Mini-pc, ethernet cable to my laptop). I dont have any issues using my laptop, ethernet cable and the ASIAir and ASIAir app but I would like to use a different software than the ASIAir app.
Does the USB Extender allow two way communication between the laptop and scope, mount and accessories? I see them on Amazon and just looking at the pictures it looks more like a one-way control system. The transmitter has a USB connection and ethernet connection and the receiver has the USB ports and an ethernet connection (this seem typical for all the ones Ive seen). The receiver has to go at the scope end because of the USB ports and accessories. Since it is a transmitter/receiver combo this leads me to believe its a one-way control system.
