Sorry. It doesn't have anything to do with a web browser.
The client runs on Windows 7 64 bit. Server is on RPI which is wire-connected to my home network.

So if you use Microsoft Edge as standard web browser this could perhaps be the reason for your problems.

The CCD simulator uses the primary telescope in my case.

Run this command from the terminal on the Stellarmate and it will load full updated INdI and the GSC files

sudo apt-get install indi-full gsc

Or for just GSC

sudo apt-get install gsc

I did that on StellarMate. It says that "gsc is already the newest version (1.3~ubuntu18.04.1)" - altough I did not installed it manually before (is it meanwhile automatically installed? Or perhaps because I switched to the Beta Channel?).

Anyway, the "problem" why it did not work the first time, was that at FOV I have to manually type in the calculated FOV of the CCD simulator with the primary scope. After I did that, I could click on start and everything works fine. No refreshing problems.

NH - as I reported it works in simulation mode (after cameras are properly assigned) but doesn't with real cameras (at least I couldn't make it work)...
Also it works on RPI/Ubuntu client. The problem only exists for Windows client.

Ok, I just saw that you write that it fails with the simulators too. I will test that also as soon as possible. But it maybe take a while, because I am in the next weeks very often not at home and where I live is the wheater normally bad. I think there is no way to test this with the real setup indoors, correct?

NH,
Look. It was failing with the simulators because the cameras were mis-assigned. Once the cameras assigned correctly - the procedure works. With the simulators.
The problem is - it doesn't work with the Windows client. Works with simulators but not with real setup. On Windows client.
Works fine on RPI/Ubuntu client.
And, no, you cannot test it indoors. You need to see/shoot Polaris.
Thanks!
