Now Celestron GPS not connect. #35132
Hi, for days my Celestron GPS mount does not connect anymore, with error:
Serial read error: timeout error
Failed to communicate  with the mount, check the logs for details.
Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600  failed Starting auto search...

I have an old package compiled on February 14th (at 17:45:00) .. this works.

Attach the mount log and video.

P.S.
In log "Telescopio" is an Alias of Celestron GPS device.

Another guy here has the same problem. I tried to help but it looks like everything was OK. Handshake fails. lsof output lists 2x celestron on ttyUSB0, nothing else. Any suggestions?

Now Celestron GPS not connect. #35373
Ok I introduced some code to fix an issue when several devices compete over serial ports... but it looks like it is causing regressions elsewhere (it's working fine here in the observatory). I guess it would be safer to disable this for now.

Many thanks for your reply, Jasem. I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say " it would be safer to disable this for now". Disable what? Should we pull from GIT and try if the issue has been fixed? I don't see any other devices compete for the port here so I'm not sure...

I haven't pushed any changes yet.. because I'm not 100% sure this is the cause.. but since this is pretty much the only change that happened, I would guess so.

Try this indicom.c file, and recompile, install and test.

It goes to libindi/libs

Meanwhile he has been successful in connecting the mount via bluetooth. indilib.org/forum/mounts/4649-connection...vanced-gt.html#35368

I hope he will be successful in getting the mount online via USB, too.

Any feedback on this? I am flagging this as a show blocker that needs to be cleared before the next INDI is released.
