I have had my TimeFactor for over 4 years and it’s always been reliable. Lately, it has a difficult time connecting to my computer through a USB cable to H9 Control on my Mac Mini. I have updated with the latest firmware and have tried all combinations of connecting and powering up. Usually I could find some way to get H9 to recognize my timeFactor. Today, I can’t get them to connect at all. I continually get the following messages.
An error occurred while communicating with the TimeFactor device <TF-11376>.
The stompbox is not responding. Please verify that it is still connected. (Error code MessageConstants:::sm_resonse_timeout)
Device not responding
The device ‘TF-11376’ is not responding. Please check your communication settings and/or try restarting your device with hot knob and right footswitch pressed to clear the system settings.
I have tried all of this and replaced the USB cable. Any words of wisdom?

Are you using the latest H9 Control?
have you tried clicking "Reset all settings" in H9 Control's Settings page?
What OS do you use on your Mac Mini?

How long should it take to Reset all Settings? H9 Control says it is “Examining connected device TF-11376” for over 15 minutes? There is no indication on the TimeFactor that anything is going on.

So, I let it go for an hour and then shut down H9 control. When I brought it back up, it went to the same place but said, I was using an unrecognized TimeFactor. I signed in and it saved it for me. What in the world is going on?

Do you use any other MIDI devices? Does TimeFactor connect well if it's the only MIDI device connected?
Also check your Audio MIDI setup and in the MIDI devices remove/reset all Eventide devices and then try connecting again.

I am having the same issue and have tried everything stated. I just updated the pedal.

This is for people who just bought an H9, tried to use H9 Control and googled the message, “Examining connected device”:
After letting that screen dominate my iPad for an hour, I finally exited H9 Control and restarted. This time, my H9 was recognized and said to be registered, and all of the editing and saving features worked perfectly.
Note to Eventide: Searching for “Examining connected device ‘H9′” in google and duckduckgo yields exactly three hits, all of them on this forum and none of them answering what I would assume is a common first question.

Just got my H9 Max yesterday. Similar problems. I can connect over USB or Bluetooth, but the device seems to lock up showing V 5.8.5. All buttons are unresponsive. Trying to connect with Control app says communication error. Error message says power cycle with hotknob and right footswitch held down. So I tried that, it comes up with “clear” but again, all buttons unresponsive. Still can’t connect with Control app.
I’m using Mac OS 11.2.3, is it compatible?
May 11, 2021 at 4:18 am #157814MATHEUS AUGUSTOMemberI’m having the same connecting issues with my notebook and my Eventide Modfactor. Both H9 app for windows and the eventide direct update can’t recongnize
my stompbox even though the usb cable, the pedal and daw are working just fine.
I read on the forum the same problem as many users, so I try to reinstall the firmware and reset the parameters, the software etc. several times…

My MF wasn’t connected with other devices and neither my DAW was open.

The Eventide device appears only in the Device Manager as audio controller (image bellow). I’ve tried the manual update mode on the pedal but neither the direct updater or Eventide Device Manager recognized it.

Well, you can click "Reset all Settings" in demo mode as well.
Does that mean your TimeFactor now connects?

When you say "all buttons unresponsive" do you mean the buttons on the pedal? Does your H9 have effects? Do the footswitches work?
Have you tried factory reset by powering up the pedal with the right footswitch and the black knob pressed?

Was your DAW open when you tried to connect in H9 Control?

Is your ModFactored showed as a USB device or audio device/midi device on your Notebook?
Can it be recognized by the direct updater or Eventide Device Manager when it boots into the UPDATE mode?
