Title: Lynx FTDI EQDIR USB cable
Post by: Longjohn54 on November 13, 2016, 12:08:42 AM
Had the anniversary update to my Win 10 laptop last week and it trashed the Prolific USB driver that Hitech Astro uses in their USB cable.

I've bought a Lynx Astro FTDI EQDIR USB cable which doesn't use the Prolific driver and it works perfectly on Win 10.
