Is this fixed yet? Was just out with Polemaster on Win 10 laptop and version 1.3.2.8 and it's not working properly still.

Hi,
    I attached a PoleMaster_Qt with debug,but it seem Manav is busy on other work,I didn't receive his feedback so that I can't do the next test.
    And are you free?If so,I think we can do it,and which software do you use?PoleMaster or PoleMaster_Qt?
Best Regards,

Ran the debug view with the compiled version you supplied. I attached the debug output. Where the return values for getliveframe are not -1 is where I rapidly moved the mouse. Hope this helps...

Another piece of the puzzle... I use my laptop only for PoleMaster and polar alignment. I use a desktop PC (Windows 10) in my home (connected via USB active repeater cable) to remotely control my scope during imaging. As a test, I installed PoleMaster on my Desktop machine and connected the PoleMaster camera to the USB hub on my mount. I then took the laptop outside and used remote desktop to access PoleMaster on the desktop machine (which is now where the PoleMaster camera is connected) and it worked perfectly. Talk about going around your elbow to get to your thumb! lol

Regardless, this appears to be mostly affecting laptops for some reason. Perhaps that can offer a clue to where the problem is.

     Below is the link to the wetransfer log. Also the outline of what I did while generating log output.   

        connect with gain setting:70 and exp: 100 no video at at all
   set gain and exp. to 50 and disconnect
   reconnect with gain/exp set to 50 and video appears only when using mouse

Okay, in SharpCap I can set USB traffic. Putting it to "0" seems to work. How can we set this in PoleMaster?

Playing with this a little more, it looks like sometimes it is 0 and others it is 255. If you add control of USB traffic, probably need to be able to vary it over the whole range. Maybe a slider?
Thanks again...
