Problem with EQMod
I'm trying to connect to my EQ6-R whith the EQMod driver via the hand controller.
I run the latest git 7d5271f on an odroid XU4 and use an "pl2303" usb-RS232 converter.
screen /dev/ttyUSB0 9600
However when trying to connect indi I get the following response
2017-08-09T20:00:22: dispatch_command: ":e1", 4 bytes written 2017-08-09T20:00:22: Connection successful, attempting handshake... 2017-08-09T20:00:22: Port FD 13 2017-08-09T20:00:22: Connecting to /dev/ttyUSB0 2017-08-09T20:00:22: Trying connection to /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 ... 2017-08-09T20:00:22: Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 failed.

Now I at least have a proper incentive to build a 1.8 to 3.3 V level shifter to use the GPIO UART
I am experiencing the same issues and I was wondering if this has been resolved or if it occurs again for some strange reasons.
I have built myself the usb cable for a SkyWatcher HEQ-5 by using a FTDI TTL-232R-5V and a RJ-45 cable

Ekos / INDI reports:
2019-02-13T20:02:50: [ERROR] Error: Communication failed -> tty read failed, check connection: Timeout error
I have installed INDI (Ekos, Kstars…) by using the AstroPi3 script on a Raspberry Pi 3 on Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS and I think I am on the latest version (sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get upgrade already done a couple of times).
Any help is greatly appreciated, I am trying to get this to work for the last three days.
I updated to the nightly version and the error message is different now:

I guess I need to find out what driver or process uses the port?!
