PHD2 causing slowdown on Rpi4 1.4.5 beta #45993
I started using 1.4.5 and found it slow. I was blaming the update but now I've worked out it's being caused by PHD2. When PHD2 is not running everything runs smoothly but after PHD2 is started everything slows down. When I click on a tab to change apps there is a big delay, the tracking graph on PHD2 updates only very 3 or 4 seconds even with the exposure time set to 1 second. Everything is slow including Kstars and the desktop not just PHD2 itself.

I was using PHD2 in 1.4.4 with no problems and I have the same equipment configured (asi camera, indi eqmod mount) so I don't know.whats changed. The only thing different I have done is that 1.4.5 for some reason didn't like my exfat formatted usb stick so I installed exfat support.

Anyone else having problems. Any suggestions?

Tried again last night using indi camera instead of asi camera in PHD2 configuration. It was maybe a bit quicker but still slower than in 1.4.4.

PHD2 causing slowdown on Rpi4 1.4.5 beta #46427
Dear all,

I have a RP4 with 1.4.5 beta kernel, i have problem with wifi and USB 3.0 ports. Without the usb 3.0 ports charged, usb stick for example, stellarmate works ok, Hot spot and connected to wifi home router. But when I put the usb 3.0 memory stick the Hot spot or the connection to WiFi home stops. If I connect the memory stick to usb 2.0 port WiFi works ok. It is possible to solve this?

Thanks,

Jose
