I have the Akitio Thunderbolt Quad X (the full-size version). It's been working fine on Big Sur and Monterey. You may need to go to their website and check to see if there is newer firmware for your device. Also, a firmware update came out for the TS3 not that long ago last year. Check the Caldigit site against your device to make sure you have the latest firmware as well. I have used both of these devices with no problem, daisy-chaining a Thunderbolt drive to the Akitio since sometime in 2020, as well as filling up the TS3+ with all sorts of devices and it works great since about August 2021.Thanks for the quick reply!
This setup was working in the confidence / older version of bios & F9 with Clover and Catalina.
The chain is Akitio Thunderbolt 3 Quad mini bay raid, then a Call digit TS3+ TB3 Dock with maybe 10 USB3 HDD's + 2x TB3 -TB2 devices
I haven't tested the Akitio will work for any real length of time by itself yet as I havent linked my AppleID and therefore FCPX with the new SMBIOS just yet. Either way as soon as the other devices are connected the whole thing freezes
Also, try a process of elimination if you haven't already. Try only the Quad Mini to see if that works. Then, with nothing else attached to it, plug in the TS3+. Also, try the TS3 on a Thunderbolt port with the Quad Mini not plugged in and with nothing else attached to the TS3+. That should confirm if it's the dock or the Quad Mini. If they both work then chances are one of the extra devices may be the issue, though I would certainly make sure firmware is up to date on everything in order to work with Big Sur/Monterey.
