Re: new CT-17 CI-V hub design
Will the proposed new versions you describe be totally different models or can they be an upgrade ( firmware?) from the products you currently have for sale?

No, the CT-17 and CT17B are HUBs by definition the ports are all common, EXCEPT! the CT-17B-1X series (10, 11 and 12) have a jumper under the unit that let you split the hub into two seperate hubs with or whitout USB ports, thus letting you use the ct-17B-1X series as two seperate hubs.
No the CI-V protocol is an ADHOC protocol as mention before and the CT17 and CT-17B are both Hubs and by definition a hub does not manage seperately the ports and the protocol a switch does, the CT17B is not a switch, I am working on one but am many months from finished dev.
Well the CT-17B doesnt but the CI-V protocol does partially, it does listen in and partially manages that but wiht bugs as seen with the ICOM linears.
No it does not, none of the CI-V USB interface that I know do that, and I dont really see... humm ... anyway will look into this one it does raise some issues, but then again would only be applicabble to the PC Port because he is the only one using the USB port the devices are not... anyway this one is aninterresting ideal.,
it can see the way I split the CT-17B-1X serial using JP1
No this is not a switch (Hint, for now!)
No this is not a switch (For now! :-D )
:D Only the Best ICOM, ERC and HRD
