Hello Wouter,
Just tried. If I put the FCUSB in my profile in Ekos directly on the RPi all is fine. Only when I put it in Ekos under windows the opposite happens, as explained in the beginning of this thread.
I attached the log file from my Windows laptop which contains several startups, so a bit longer than necessary :-)
Cheers

Hello Wouter,

Dear all,
Strange thing. I use a laptop (W10) with Kstars/Ekos and a Pi running the drivers/PHD2.
When I connect without putting my Shoestring FCUSB in my profile, it isn't available... duh you would say.
However when I put the FCUSB in my profile I get a message like "INDI cannot connect to driver" and it doesn't startup.
Then I remove the FCUSB from my profile and it all starts without problems INCLUDING FCUSB. Now I can use the focus tab.
Wouter, any idea?

Hi Rob,
I run PHD2 on the Pi and Ekos on my laptop as you suggest. I don't have the lodestar in my profile, but Ekos finds it anyway!
Is there a way to specifically leave-out a camera?
Cheers Arnold

Arnold de Bruin created a new topic ' ethernet connection - lower res screen' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Dear all,
After trying fixed ip addresses etc but not succeeding in establishing a direct ethernet connection I tried a broadband router I had lying around.
And voila! Instant network and access to the Stellarmate RPi ;-) Didn't have to do anything but connecting the ethernet cables.
BUT... the screen graphics look like there is less bit depth or whatever - see attached pic from the VNC window on my laptop.
Is there any reason for this and is there anything I can do?
Cheers Arnold

Hi Wouter, thanks! But as I said, it works anyway even if I don't put it in the profile at all ;-)

Arnold de Bruin created a new topic ' profile - confusion' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Dear all,

A bit of confusion or misunderstanding on my part....
I have SM on a RPi running drivers local and Kstars/Ekos on my laptop.
Just bought a Shoestring FCUSB and when I add it to the profile in AUX it gives a error saying something like "error loading INDI driver etc" and I can't connect to my equipment.
However if I don't mention the FCUSB in my profile, everything starts ok INCLUDING the FCUSB.... and I can focus in Ekos.
So, no big deal. But how come? It confuses me. What needs to be mentioned in the profile and what not?

Cheers Arnold

Hi rlancaste,
Can you elaborate on tweaking the solver?
I run Astrometry on my laptop under Windows 10 and use the Pi solely for the drivers, so Kstars also on my laptop.
Solving takes at least 30 seconds for an approx 100x78 arcmin frame.

Thanks Astronerd, it worked. Pity not more resolutions are available in the menu.....

Dear all,
Is there an "easy" way to change the screen resolution? I want to use VNC with a 1366x768 laptop.
I think I need mode 39.
I read the posts from Wouter, but reading the config.txt I came to the conclusion that changing that was far to complex for me - all those parameters.
I don't want to screwup my system ;-)
Cheers
