    I am trying to run one of the python examples in your module connector.

    I am using a new macbook pro with only USB-C connector. The radar led lights up blinking blue, but I get the following error when I try to run an example called:

    I run like this
    > python3
    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "", line 33, in <module>


    File "", line 19, in main

    mc = ModuleConnector(module[0])

    IndexError: list index out of range

    I also tried the xethru explorer for Mac and it doesn't recognize the device, attached is a screen shot of what I am getting

    let me know how to solve this ASAP.

    Thanks 2017-12-01 at 5.11 PM.jpeg

    Hi Nir,
    Sorry for the delay, I tested on several OSX devices, found the same problem on one Mac mini. The problem is caused by serial port cannot be recognized. We may need more time to debug this problem. I will feedback to you as soon as possible.

    Hi Nir,
    The Mac Mini which has the same problem is running OS X/macOS 10.10.5 (Yosemite). We have not been able to reproduce on 10.13 (High Sierra). Apple appears to have made rather big changes in their USB driver structure in 10.11 (El Capitan), so a hypothesis is that our USB implementation has some compatibility issues with the older macOS USB CDC driver.
    Could you check the version of your macOS?
