Hi Nero. Did you do this connection? I´ve read some tablets, including Mac Book, can do a shortcircuit if you dont use a special PC to PC USB cable. . I´ve already broken a tablet vía usb port, so I am a bit paranoic. Did you tried it? I would like to try a program to convert the tablet in a second monitor (with “twomon usb” program), and it must be done through the USB port.
PS: In fact, I am ussing that special USB cable, but it only allows to share files. I can´t use it to link the Twomon.
Thanks for your time!February 4, 2018 at 4:29 am #78778

Maybe this doesn´t seem useful, but for those who use the Cube mix for illustration and design, it may be used like a mini Wacom Cintiq through usb connection (or Cintiq Companion) using “Twomonusb” program. This is very useful because you can use the performance of a desktop pc and drawing on the entire screen of the tablet (Without any toolbars, using the tablet as second monitor). Besides, using the pc desktop cpu I hope to avoid to demand to the tablet´s cpu (it burns like HELL >:( ). I´ve already tried “Chrome remote desktop”, but it works as a mirror monitor, it lags, and it doesn´t support the sensitive Wacom pen. So maybe this is not a smart question, but has anyone connected this tablet to a desktop or latop using usb ports with out any short or any kind of problem? Thanks.April 15, 2018 at 3:50 am #141978

Preliminary stuff, needed to answer your question:
As I understand it, USB traditionally had Hosts and Devices. USB A connectors were for Hosts and USB B connectors were for Devices. OTG kind of mixes these up.
The USB 3.0 Micro-B SuperSpeed socket on the Mix Plus sure looks to me like a Device connector (it looks just like one on recent portable hard drives). But the dongle supplied with the computer converts it to a USB 3.0 A socket. And it works as a Host. I don’t really understand this.
The tablet’s USB 3.x C socket could be either Host or Device. The same socket is used for both in the USB standard for C.
Maybe this is explained somewhere, but I haven’t noticed. I’d like to know.
