I ordered 2 Moonlander 2 and have them hashing. The problem is that no matter what I do one of the sticks have an error rate of 5-10%. I've tried modifying clock settings, different USB ports, different computers, powered USB hubs, etc.

One stick is <.5% error rate and the other is 5-10% consistently. I've gone as low at 600MHz and as high as 796 each with similar results.

I've purchased directly from the developer on eBay. Not sure if I have a defective unit or I need to tweak the pots maybe?

Interested to hear any ideas on how to troubleshoot this.

Try raising the memory and core voltage. Also some units do show higher error rate, but does not actually affect the hashrate (i.e. the uart controller sometimes spits out garbage, but all the "real" shares still come out properly). Are you also seeing a corresponding 5-10% drop in hashrate?

So the plot thickens (well not really... I think I just have a bad device).

These devices shipped with the following voltages Core: 0.714VDC  Mem: 0.771VDC. I changed them to their supposed defaults listed in the first post and was able to get it to Core: 0.751  Mem: 0.854. Now the error rate is consistent with the other 2 devices, except I constantly get these errors after a few hours:

[2018-02-03 10:45:24] FutureBit Write error: Permission denied
[2018-02-03 10:45:24] MLD 1: ASIC has stopped hashing, attempting to restart
[2018-02-03 10:45:24] FutureBit Write error: Permission denied

I've dropped the frequency from 756 (where the others are running happily) to 600 and all steps in between. I've been troubleshooting this for days and keep ending with the same result no matter which USB port or hub I use. I've run this thing solo, with the other two, basically every combination I've tried gets these errors.

Not sure what else to try at this point.

what hub and what pc or rasp pi?

I want to stress  that my setup is at 832  and just runs and runs and runs and runs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3rqTUNt5XI

I'm not sure how your setup or your stressing is relevant here. I've got 3 devices, 2 of which have zero issues. Clearly, if it was a problem with my setup then all 3 would exhibit this problem. I've tried this device on 2 PC's. One is a Corsair One Pro and a mining rig with a BioStar TB250-BTC+ motherboard. The problem exists whether I'm using a USB 3.0 port directly from the motherboard or via a powered USB hub. If you're suggesting the problem is any one of these USB ports then the other devices would surely fail, which they don't.

When this issue happens, the other 2 devices happily "just runs and runs and runs and runs". This device has a much higher error rate and much lower share rate than the other two and then just completely dies.

What's interesting is that while adjusting the pots, I've had the inductor fail to get a voltage reading and I've had to unplug and replug the device in order to get a reading.

I'm having the same issue with mine.  I have 2, and they ran beautifully at 832 and 876 for several days...
Now they run for abut an hour and i get the same error, on both of them and I'v drooped the frequency several times.  I'm running a 60w powered hub, so that shouldn't be the issue right?  I'm going to tinker and try them on the pc ports and see if it makes a difference.

Up to 8 of these now which is probably as far as I will go. All are running happily at max speed and completely stable.
https://image.ibb.co/m1hiM6/moonlanders.jpg

woh thats impressive...how are you running so many at max speed for nearly 5 days that stable?? I don't even think I have achieved that in my tests. What kind of hub do you have? lol

I'm using 4 Anker hubs with 2 on each, they just aren't stable with more than 2 on each one. All are daisy chained together going to one USB port on the computer. These things just are so ragged edge on USB power consumption when turned up that this is the only way I've been able to get reliable performance. I tried a few different hubs previously and they were worse than these.

I ran into something else interesting along the way the other day when I got the last pair of these. I had been running them on a USB2 bus and the 6 were always fine at full speed. After stepping up to 8 of them, I'd consistently see one slow down after a while. Moving them over to the USB3 bus of the same system fixed that. I wouldn't think the USB2 bus was saturated, so I don't really know why.

For some reason I'm having trouble getting my moonlanders running. I bought two of them along with one of the recommended powered USB hubs.  They are showing up in Device Manager and the fans are running along with the green power light.

I installed the driver from the link provided and also downloaded the recommended BFG miner, but when I fire up the BFG miner, it doesn't recognize the moonlanders. It sits there saying " [2018-02-05 13:23:18] Waiting for devices; press 'M+' to add, or 'Q' to quit" for a minute, and then goes to this screen:

Yes, I installed that driver before plugging in the Moonlanders.

Personally I would uninstall drivers, install them again, check, and use Zadig to play with drivers see if you can change it/fix it.
Did you used bfgminer from link in first post of this thread as well? I installed mine yesterday, Windows 10 64bit, installed drivers, installed bfgminer, clicked run and they are running since then without any problems.

I ran into something else interesting along the way the other day when I got the last pair of these. I had been running them on a USB2 bus and the 6 were always fine at full speed. After stepping up to 8 of them, I'd consistently see one slow down after a while. Moving them over to the USB3 bus of the same system fixed that. I wouldn't think the USB2 bus was saturated, so I don't really know why.

* Are you using external fans?? I could not see it so quickly from your picture. If not, have you measured your ASIC temperatur (small heatsink)?
* Why are you using 4 of these hubs with just 2 MLDs each if you had both a USB2 and a USB3 hub that (I understand from your message) could take all 8 in one go?? (where only the USB3 gives all units at full speed)?
* I have similar issues with running a certain number of MLDs just fine, and adding one or two more one or two units slowing down. It has been suggested it is an issue with USB hub getting 'stuck'. However, I am close to certain that on my hub it is a power issue and it could be that the powerlines in your USB 3 hub are either fatter or differently laid out on the PCB. It maybe takes a small additional voltage drop to cause problems. These babies draw a lot of current. That's my experience. But whatever the cause, I have seen similar things too.

Great stuff. I am running 6 at 924Mhz and another 5 at 832Mhz (for the above reasons; all on one USB3 hub). Getting about the same as you, slightly less. I also have slightly higher hw rates (but then I tuned core voltage down as much as possible to reduce power and heat).

Yes, a 120V fan cools these. All the hubs are the exact same USB3 hub, all of which were connected to a USB2 port on the computer initially, but when seeing one slow down after upgrading from 6 to 8 units, I moved the connection to a USB3 port which resolved that. You may have better luck using more than one hub, I certainly have.

Yea that would make sense...the less load you have on the power supply of these cheap hubs the more stable the sticks will run.

Set frequency to 384, and let me know if you see any yellow and red LED flashing as soon as your startup bfgminer. Also try running just one plugged directly into your computer USB port to rule out any issues with hub etc.

Just got my FutureBit Moonlander 2 from eyeboot.com today!

Anyone come across the following error when starting up bfgminer?

Code:

Just got my FutureBit Moonlander 2 from eyeboot.com today!

Anyone come across the following error when starting up bfgminer?

Code:
[2018-02-05 22:38:35] FutureBit Write error: Input/output error
[2018-02-05 22:38:35] FutureBit Write error: Input/output error

Here's my start_moonlander2.sh script bfgminer_5.4.2-futurebit2_linux_armv6.tar.gz

Code:
./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u <redacted_user_name>.1 -p 1,d=128 -S ALL --set MLD:clock=600

One of your sticks are loose in the USB port. I use eyeboot's hubs for my testing as well and unfortunately its the one drawback of them. The ports themselves are not of the best quality, and with the vibrations of the fan they sometimes lose USB contact with the pins and causes this error.

Your problem is that you plugged your Moonlander directly into your RPi3. The RPi3 doesn't have enough current to supply the moonlander to run. Check this thread for options for a good usb hub.

^ ahh sorry yes misread the comment. Saw eyeboot and thought you were talking about getting a hub from him. Yes if you plugged it directly into the Pi, thats your problem. The pi is cutting off the stick due to drawing to much power which a direct connection to the Pi can't handle.

Hi all guys!

as sad before i'm newish and completely virgin (!) about mining (well,taking apart some try mining some litecoin using minerd).

I have freshly received my new bright Moonlander 2 .....and well...i have some problem:

I'm using a MacBook 13" late 2008, OS x 10.11.6 and X code 8.2.1

I ran all the installation of the driver and the bfgminer,when i launch i receive this message:

jstefanop told me that the only working os x are 10.11 and 10.12 (i can't update my machine to 10.12,it was too old).

Anyone had the same issue and was able to fix it?

thank you very much.

New image worked first time. Haven't tried anything crazy yet. I will start cranking them up over the weekend.

Do you mind sharing the details of your hub? I bought two Sipolar A-400 and after about two months of use, both power plugs are acting up. Won't get power if you stick it in all the way. Trying to see if I can find a cheaper alternative that is reliable up 150W (10 devices).

.
I noticed you updated bfgminer to 5.5 for your fork.

1) Will you be releasing new binaries soon? Any advantage to 5.5 for ML2 users?

2) Can we configure to include GPU with your fork?

I was on 10.11 and he said 10.12 was the way to go. It was the right move. Sorry you can't upgrade to 10.11. I tried my best compile using brew but I was unsuccessful. You might scour some of the other github repos and they may have better steps for compiling for macOS. It was kind of a pain to compile cgminer, xmr-stak-amd/cpu, and I gave up on bfgminer 5.4.2
