Probably because some users, myself included, report audio noise (What's the term for the "rubbing your finger over a microphone"-like sound caused by an electrical contact of inconsistent quality?) while the wheel is in the process of being moved.Why ditnt whe just use the Volume Wheel from the Pandora?? It also works great and i cant image it wouldnt work..
I confirm. I had this problem twice already (approx. annually). The first time I used IPA cleaner, the second - anticorrosive spray. They both worked fine, although it seems the latter is better.
As I said previously - make sure the port is of a different color than the characteristic USB3 shade of blue, and no confusion will happen. Problem solved.It will lead to confusion though, with people expecting USB3 speeds and only getting USB2.
Abso-effin-lutely unpossible. The OTG port needs to run directly from the USB controller. If you put a hub between the controller and the port, the OTG functionality is lost.Is there a way to include a USB3 hub on the CPU board so both the micro-USB3 and the full-size USB3 port can actually achieve USB3 speeds? (though not both at the same time, since there would of course still be only one connection to the OMAP5)
Unfortunately we can't choose/change the color of the socket (they come in blue from the factory and to order a different color we need to buy quite hug he quantities).
That is unlikely. They must have a combined and switchable PHY on SoC (that could be possible since eSATA and USB3 are quite similar!). Or we would have to add external RF switches capable of carefully switching 6 GHz signals.The question is how long eSATA will be of interest at all. I am under the impression that it becomes already difficult to find devices with external eSATA. And that are hard disks and hard disk adapters only. All other devices come with USB3, even many HDD cases.If a future SOC can do both eSATA and USB3.0, will it be possible to switch the sockets behavior in software (i.e chose between USB3.0 or USB2.0 + eSATA-via-adaptor)
That's why I suggested a signal the USB->eSATA adaptor can make to the board to signify it's to connect the SATA lines to the extra pins, not the USB3 superspeed pins.If a future SOC can do both eSATA and USB3.0, will it be possible to switch the sockets behavior in software (i.e chose between USB3.0 or USB2.0 + eSATA-via-adaptor)
