Hi Stefan,

Sorry for the delay, my computer broke and I had to buy a new monitor.

I'm sure you saw this:

#!/usr/bin/env python

# for logging
import sys
import time
import logging
# import the PyIndi module
import PyIndi

# Fancy printing of INDI states
# Note that all INDI constants are accessible from the module as PyIndi.CONSTANTNAME
def strISState(s):
    if (s == PyIndi.ISS_OFF):
        return "Off"
    else:
        return "On"
def strIPState(s):
    if (s == PyIndi.IPS_IDLE):
        return "Idle"
    elif (s == PyIndi.IPS_OK):
        return "Ok"
    elif (s == PyIndi.IPS_BUSY):
        return "Busy"
    elif (s == PyIndi.IPS_ALERT):
        return "Alert"

# The IndiClient class which inherits from the module PyIndi.BaseClient class
# It should implement all the new* pure virtual functions.
class IndiClient(PyIndi.BaseClient):
    def __init__(self):
        super(IndiClient, self).__init__()
        self.logger = logging.getLogger('IndiClient')

    def serverDisconnected(self, code):
        self.logger.info("Server disconnected (exit code = "+str(code)+","+str(self.getHost())+":"+str(self.getPort())+")")

logging.basicConfig(format='%(asctime)s %(message)s', level=logging.INFO)

                print("S       "+t.name+"("+t.label+")= "+strISState(t.s))

                                                                 ]
                print("B       "+t.name+"("+t.label+")= <blob "+str(t.size)+" bytes>")
print(devices)
# Disconnect from the indiserver
print("Disconnecting")
indiclient.disconnectServer()

This is what I use and it works fine.
