no, no nononono they are not always with MST. mdnavare is right regarding the
channel EQ occasionally being the only indicator that there's something wrong
with the link training. I've seen this with my caldigit ts3 with the mst hub
hooked up to it. I'm not entirely sure why, but my guess would be that there's
a displayport repeater somewhere in the TS3 that's not an mst branch device.
I'd think chances are that from the source's perspective, we might be doing
link training with that instead of the actual hub, which means that if link
training between the hub and said repeater failed the only way it would be
reported would be through the channel eq because it's detected by the MST hub.

There's some other behavior regarding this that makes me a little more sure of
this. I've got an old Dell P2415Qb monitor with MST on it that actually does
manage to train at the full 5.4 GBit/s on the caldigit TS3 without needing
fallback retraining. Keep in mind, this monitor is kind of infamous across our
office for having a lot of probably-against-spec MST bugs that don't really
happen on other devices. That being said, it trains and doesn't ever throw
channel EQ failed notifications. But unlike the EVGA MST hub I have which does
throw the EQ failed notifications, the screen flickers so often it's really
difficult for me to believe it's actually link trained properly. This is
mainly where my theory of link status problems that aren't actually visible to
the source comes in, because if that's the case then the most likely
explanation is that the problematic P2415Qb never sends channel EQ failures
because it's firmware just isn't smart enough to monitor the symbol failure
rate and detect that link retraining is required.
