When ordering #150ish I was told they had plenty, but after many days you begin to wonder why they cannot ship what they had immediately, I think in reality they are still making them or there could be some issues along the way, always manufacturing issues with new designs.
I also wondered if they would upset people by shipping out of sequence to the order numbers because it's common for people to observe that to see if they are getting a fair go, would tend to increase confidence.
Are they grouping orders to go with different couriers to save money ?
I feel a little concerned now, mostly that I may not be enjoying making lots more Dash after all . . . A concern greater than losing the up front money.
Tell us when you get your order Mr #126 :)
I have double worries, I also ordered a Baikal X11, same issues . .

Anyway, all it would take is a couple of reassuring words and about 2 minutes to do that . .

I think jakehaas and I are both in the US. I am in a major metro area on the east coast so when it got to New York CIty, it didn't take much longer to get it to me.

Order #100
Shipping destination CANADA
Not a frickin word or response from pinidea regarding the shipping situation.

I can understand shipping delay due to overwhelming demand. Few other things I can understand.
What about the other 120+
First come first serve.

Mine delivered today by EMS, order #102
SP Express tracking showed Hong Kong -> Russia, EMS Post tracking showed Finland -> Russia

Normally you don't need to install any USB driver, but in case your machine cannot recognize our miner, you should download USB Driver from silicon labs. We use CP2102
Actually Windows 8.1, Windows 7 and Windows 2012 R2 not recognized miner and show it as "LUFA CDC Demo". With manual drivers setup it not worked too, return "Cannot start device, code 10" error in Device Manager.
Thanks Google, found another driver.

Don't have much time and additional power source now, so just test at random p2pool @200Mhz:



and pool show 4.5+ Mhash.

Let me know if you are able to get more than 3 DU-1s operating at once under Windows. I'm running Win10 and when I hook them all up, only three will actually process shares. The other two just spin. Doesn't matter what I do. I've even tried spawning multiple instances of the app with no luck. The 4th device and higher just sit there.

I've also been unsuccessful in getting these devices recognized by the PinIdea version of cgminer on RPi/Minera. If anyone has gotten them working on this platform, please let me know.

I also have a device that I've been unsuccessful at operating at anything above 300. It will process shares if I specify a clock freq of 300 or below. At 400, both leds blink so fast that they are almost constant.

#153 Still waiting to get my order placed 5/19. I did help someone (order #124) set up 5 x du-1 units on Windows 7 x64. They ordered 5/16, was given tracking number 6/1, and package delivered to US west coast 6/2. Soleo has mentioned in slack channel there is a delay shipping because they are not able to assemble the miners fast enough. My theory is that they sent out the earliest orders likely in numerical order up to a certain point, then decided to fulfill all the smaller orders. I am willing to bet those who have received their du1s either ordered really early or had a small order of 5 or 6 units.

Just some quick tips notes from the 5 unit setup I just put together. All 5 of them detected on Windows as "LUFA CDC DEMO". The binaries from PinIdea contains an DU1.inf file that was needed to get the du1 shown as "DU1 COM Port". You can update the drivers by going to StartMenu -> Devices and Printers -> Rightclick and go to properties of the LUFA CDC DEMO -> find "update drivers" and point it at the DU1.inf file. Once one DU1 unit is recognized properly then unplug and re-plug the rest of them and they will now show correctly with a different COM port assigned to each.

Side note: If your miners show as "unknown device" then the problem is windows is installing drivers automatically that will not work. Simply prevent windows from auto installing drivers (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2500967) then uninstall the drivers that windows used in the device manager. Unplug and replug the miner and it should detect properly as LUFA CDC DEMO. Proceed to update with DU1.inf file.

Thought I posted this a while ago but apparently forgot to hit the POST button. I swapped out the USB driver a few times and eventually got all devices running under Win10. I've had people tell me they were successful with the default Win10 USB drivers and the unsigned PinIdea USB driver. YMMV. I've also noticed that I get inconsistent results when I run multiple DU-1s on a single instance of cgminer. Eventually, some just stop hashing. This is fixed by just firing up multiple instances of cgminer each talking to a different device. I've only got five devices so it's not that big of a deal. I've seen others with dozens so that workaround would be a pain at that scale.

I've also had two miners that won't hash at 400. One never would and would hash at 300. Now it will not hash higher than 200. Another would hash at 400 originally but after a little run time now will no longer hash above 300.

I still need to see if I can get these things running under linux/RPi. Might get some time this weekend. Interested to hear how others are doing with the DU-1s.
