Go to network icon top right of screen, select “configure networks”
Choose the hotspot from the list and on the right side in the first tab, you will see the drop down box for the channel.. :)

Just started working for me - had to go via Stellarmate Dashboard on Pi but I'd tried that before without success. I did notice that on the main system list of networks my network then appeared twice - firstly connected via the dashboard, and secondly with "never used" against it (which I removed).

Alan Townshend replied to the topic 'Polar alignment issue (CCD exposure in progress!!)' in the forum. 1 hour 37 minutes ago

I am still having the exact same issue, "....retry in 10s", which can mean anything upto 15 minutes later! This is very frustrating as this feature worked perfectly a couple of months ago for me.

I have update kstars tto 3.3.8 and am running Linux raspberrypi 4.19.75-v7l+ #1270 SMP Tue Sep 24 18:51:41 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

KDE Frameworks 5.54.0
Qt 5.11.3 (built against 5.11.3)
The xcb windowing system

What else do I need to do to get some feedback on this issue? This is my first chance in over a week to actually see any sky, so spending hours setting up is note very rewarding.

Have I perhaps posted in the wrong forum?

This sounds like my issue as well - where do you change the channel to 44?

It worked via the Web Manager, although the page looks to just spin, but I looked at the connection and it was connected.

Earlier I did test with a bogus password, and the messages were the same, so I figured it was just not getting my real password as typed (because I did the eyeball password reveal and I could see it was correct).

Hmmm, I have not had any issues, but I don’t use the app...although I did have an issue trying to set the hotspot on 5ghz, and that would time out and not connect, until Jasem told me to change the change, to 44, that worked a treat... :) :)

I also have WiFi issues with 1.4.5 - connecting to my usual home network SSIDs from the Pi. It times out with "Connection Failed" and "No secrets were provided".

Hello El Corazon,

Thank you for your report. This is good news. I will check my configuration to see if this specific update was successful. Now for a clear night to come.

Thanks for the quick integration in the main code line. I will try to pull and test the solution this week.
As soon as I tested it, I will let you know the results on this thread.

Chris Rowland created a new topic ' Should simulators always load the default configuration?' in the forum. 5 hours 29 minutes ago

From what I can see when Ekos/Indi is started the simulators will always load their configuration from the .default file, even when there is an xml file with an updated configuration. I've seen this with the CCD Simulator and guide simulator. I'm trying to set the simulators to match my hardware and it's causing all sorts of errors in Ekos because properties don't match.

Should the simulators prefer to load from their XML file, only using the .default file if there is no .xml file present? I can have a go at fixing this if that's what should happen.

Sorry to have given you wrong advise then. I assumed that setting no Mount/Telescope would be OK. It makes sense to set a Telescope Simulator and use manual slewing.

I reached to the online chat on SM page and I have answer.
2. fixed in recent update. APP didn't support manual slew in polar alignment and if you had no telescope set it would crash.
3. I was dumb. If you're using mount that you can't connect directly to the SM you need to use mount simulator and then manual slew in the PA tab (it's now active)
