think seriously about the newhidups switch. I'll definitly kill hidups by
the 2.2 release (this lets you some time ;-)

yep,  the PowerSummary HID collection has now been standardised, which means
that you can now hard code the ReportID for all new USB models).
IIRC, the previous ReportID should have been used, but I might be wrong!

strange as there is no DelayBefore* objects redundancy (ie on Outlet) which
would lead to that kind of problem.
Moreover, I've made another test with newhidups, and everything works as
expected. Do you have some debug trace for this?

For the moment, I would more tend to a conversion issue, but only the trace
of the sent frame can confirm it.

Is a report descriptor tree available anywhere, just to be sure we are

I've not had time to update this doc (nor to make it more useful than it is)
but I'll check for this too.

Following the receival of the above info, I'll check with the ASR team.
