Are there near terms plans to support these devices? I would love to connect mine to my new Mac Mini.

The is a driver out for M1 macs or apple silicon

I have tested this out on my macbook pro m1 with my pegasus 2 R4 works ok, with some bugs but it will mount your device the issue I see is speed. But I am sure this will get ironed out over time.

Or you can download it from this link...

Please read the install guide. Big Sur has security features that must be modified.

This works for me on a Mac Mini M1 with a Pegasus2 R6 as well even though the driver claims it only works for Pegasus3.

Yeah, I suspect they all use similar ways to connect in Mac OS regardless of being thunderbolt 3 or thunderbolt 2.

either that or they always put support for all Pegasus devices in all their products.

The funny thing is their chat support is actually saying it supports more than just the pegasus 3 units. So maybe there is a communication error internally? hard to say all I know is it just works, with pretty much all pegasus units 1, 2 , 3

I've had my old Pegasus R6 series 1 perfectly connected to my new MBP M1 for the last week, by following the guide.
