Re: Unable to Talk to ServoII
The first thing to do in these situations is always to get short high quality 28/24 gold contact USB cable and see if the computer connects. If it does then there’s a cabling problem. SiTech should show up as a comm port on the computer, BTB. You can’t rule out the hub as the culprit without eliminating it. I’ve found that in cold weather USB just doesn’t work as well as it does when things are warm. I’ve made it a practice to just use hubs that are rated down to 0C – the regular office quality hubs don’t seem as good. As recently as this past month I had USB problems because I violated this rule. After getting a new industrial hub problem was completely gone.

Subject: [SiTechservo] Unable to Talk to ServoII
The last time I was using it I lost comms with the controller briefly during the night. When things resumed it seem to work fine but apparently the mount was totally confused as to where it was pointing, which hemisphere it was working in because when I tried to park it tried to do a meridian flip through the South pole and I had to park it manually. So I'm worrying that something internal has gone wrong.
Can anybody give me some hints?
