So I have a Home Assistant VM on Unraid with ZHA. I have a Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle.
If I plug the dongle into a usb extension cable, boot, hotplug in the dongle, all works fine 100%.
If I plug the dongle into the exact same port on the mobo, it recognizes the dongle in the VM, but does not pass info. No devices can connect, no data flows in, no new devices can be added. Same goes if I add in the device to the template, start, etc. Nothing. Tried every combination. Reverted back to previous versions of HA, Unraid, and firmwares on the dongle. NADA.
Other USB ports do the exact same thing. And yes, they are all USB 3.0 and so is the extension.
Ideas how to fix this? Don’t even know why this would be a thing?
