USB over Ethernet
« on: 09:34:08, 04 November, 2017 »
We just moved back after two months 'exile' because our house was renovated - new pipes etc.
So I thought that because they also put new data cables I could order some extra in my balcony so I could leave balcony door close during my imaging sessions (no cables going through door gap.
Yesterday I tried it (with USB over Ethernet adapters) but alas it didn't work as planned.
ASI174MC was connected but no image.
Later I googled and realised that this connection is not optimal for we cams and the like.
However I also found out other USB Ethernet solutions which might work better.
But of course with a price tag so before ordering any more expensive gear I'd like to ask if any of you have succeeded doing similar thing.

Watching...

Interested to know what people think Tapio as as you probably saw from another thread I too am struggling to get my 174 to work with USB3 between my obsy and obsy PC which is only 5-7 meters away.... I'm currently looking at Chris's suggestion of using a Rock64 board running USB3.

The ODroidXU4 is another one worth looking into.

Yeah, probably I should have asked a USB connection through the balcony wall.
But now my hope is a remote pc in balcony with a RD connection (either ethernet or wifi).

At least I found USB2 over Ethernet solutions and had a feeling that even USB3 but even USB2 seemed too high priced for my budget.
Anyway last night I could image first time while balcony door was closed so mission accomplished.
Had my laptop there but I'm going to replace that with Intel NUC.
