Mac not recognizing Model 1

Plugging in Model 1 to my MacBook Pro (2017) for the first time (Catalina 10.15.4) and it doesn’t work. Chysalis also does not recognize the board. I plugged in an older keyboard to make sure the port is okay. I try using the USB-C cable that I use for power to make sure it’s not a cable issue. All the LEDs light up but I can’t get any input to register. Anyone have this issue before?

I tested it out on two different laptops (MacBook Pro & MacBook Air) and I’m getting the same result. So far I tried out booting in Safe Mode, resetting SMC, and NVRAM

Oh weird. I plugged it into an external powered USB hub and it started to work. And now when I plug it directly in, it also works…
