I’ve noticed odd performance on our TX1 system with a USB3 camera (Point Grey).
When the camera is plugged into the onboard USB3 port, I can transfer data from the camera with a barebones app that just pulls images from the data stream, but if I use their GUI with settings control etc. the GUI consistently hangs on startup.
When I plug the same camera into a USB3 hub, both data transfers and the GUI work just fine.
With a PCI card with USB3 everything works fine as well.
I’ve noticed other forum posts about this, but none that exactly address the onboard USB3 vs USB3 hub issue.
I can insert a hub into my system, it just makes things a bit kludgy. Is the hub doing some sort of buffering to smooth over whatever the onboard USB3 is having issues with?
