Any chance someone would create a XHC-WHB04b-4 plugin?

This is where you talk about Plugins. How they are made and how they work, show examples.

No, the mach3 plugin is not any help and the manufacturer's API file is also a garbage (unreliable), so developing such plugin starts with analysing the USB trafic and understanding it and then to write an own HID control code.
It is basically a work like building an Enigma machine. :)
We've made it for the HB04, but since we have a better more featureful pendant by now (UCR201) for similar cost as those chinese pendants we support our own device instead of the chinese one.
So, I think a plugin will not be written unless if the manufacturer will write one. Or if some knowledgeable users will write one.

Another reason why we will not write a plugin is because as I said it is lots of work and these kind of manufacturers simply dumping/discontinueing their old products when they develop a new one, so this could become an endless development cycle for us if we always want to support all new chinese pendants.

Thanks for the reply, that is a pity as the wireless Pendant has many more features than either of the alternatives.

No, the UCR201 is also a wireless pendant and has more features than the WHB04B-04. :)
