  • Vistitle Dongle

    Vistitle dongle lights up without even turning pc on , whilst all the others Edius and procoder are off
    The mains only are on. Is this likley to reduce dongle life. I dont really want to start disconnecting the dongle every time untill the pc is on and vistitle is in use unless i have to . It could be expensive to replace as the carriage from China is high if Videostar only use Fedex , its so unusual

      Whether the dongle lights up could depend on where it is plugged in. On most computers the USB ports will not have any power when the system is turned off (some can be configured to keep them powered to allow the charging of phones etc.), whereas a dongle plugged into a powered USB hub or monitor would most likely still get power.

        I have one dongle (audio app) that is more than 10 year old, has been reprogrammed with updates a few times and runs almost day & night.
        The internal led indication light is still on after soo many years, but I asume that it's functioning is not vital to the electronic key inside.
        Indeed FedEx to china is very costly, i had a dongle exchange for E5 last year.

          It is a powered Belkin 7port hub but the powers supply is not connected so i guess its powering then from the PC which is connected to the mains but pc is off, allother dongles remain off buntil switch on
