This may not be the place for this question, but here goes.
I bought a “5V USB Relay Programmable Computer Control For Smart Home” relay from eBay (for the grand total of £2.50), so I do not expect much from it, however I thought I’d ask the question anyway.
Some background - I am hoping to use the relay to control the roll off roof of my observatory via ASCOM
For ASCOM control, I need to be able to assign a virtual COM Port to the relay so that the Max Pilote ROR driver can
I have seen a GitHub project for implementing operation of the relay (which does work fine as the device is HID compliant). See the wiki here: http://vusb.wikidot.com/project:driver-less-usb-relays-hid-interface
However, I have tried a multitude of drivers to see if I can get one to work… for example the Eltima Virtual Com Port and the FTDI VCP driver, but I cannot seem to be able to assign a com port to the USB device in device manager.
Does anyone know how to force Windows 10 into using a Com Port for a USB (HID) device?
Does anyone use a USB relay to control their ROR from SGPro?
