Today is January 3rd, 2017.
Received plugable UD-CA1 on 12-30-2016 but didn’t take it out of the box until today.
No displays, network, or peripherals connected to UD-CA1.
Just power from wall to UD-CA1 and then USB-C cable that came from plugable to Late 2016 MacBook Pro 15" with touch bar.
At first Mac was charging. Then it started “dinging” every 7-10 seconds and the screen on the laptop dims. The laptop charges, then disconnects, lather rinse repeat.
I tried disconnecting the UD-CA1 from the laptop, waiting a few seconds and then reconnecting, same results.
I tried using a different USB-C port on the laptop, same results.
I then tried using the Apple USB-C cable. That worked, but I don’t want to have to keep reaching around behind my monitors to get my charging cable to take home every day. That is why I bought a docking station. Also, the Mac USB-C cable that came with the laptop/charger doesn’t seem to do data. When I connect a USB peripheral to the UD-CA1 while the MAC is connected to the UD-CA1 via the Apple USB-C cable, then USB peripheral is not detected. However, same USB peripheral connected to a USB-A USB-C dongle does work.
