Windows 10 SGP and Atik camera problem

Postby Murkyway » Mon Jun 25, 2018 6:30 pm


I have recently installed a Kodlix mini computer on top of my scope to reduce usb cable length and movement.
I have come across a problem with Windows 10 Pro which is pre-installed on the Kodlix and Main Sequence Pro/SGP and my Atik 414EX camera.

The camera doesn't always connect when I bring up SGP and connect the equipment in the sequence panel. The camera usb lead goes straight into a USB port, not via a hub and the cable is a high quality cable and 0.5 of a metre.

Sometimes it works three or four time from cold (everything off and rebooted) and then it doesn't for no apparent reason. All drivers are the latest both the core drivers and the ascom drivers.

The QHY5-ll camera connects ok each time.

I read somewhere that this is a Windows 10 issue and feel sure this problem must have been raised before. Can anyone help?

Kind regards
