Are you running MK808 on Linux or Android?
I am assuming for this project, you are fork-lifting the whole thing to make it Linux for easier to support??
BTW, if it ends up to be not the optimal solution, one can always change it back to XBMC video player .
On that front, will RaspberryPi or MK808 be a better dual-use solution?

Anyway, $40-ish price tag (808 cloned version) for a 1.5GHz A9 quad core, 1GB RAM, 8GB NAND flash, HDMI out, USB, USB OTG, WiFi, and Bluetooth all included is not bad. Not bad at all.
Quote:Hello all,I have tested my all new raspberrypi to drive my orion atlas mount using skysafari. It works very fine. But the 2 usb ports are occupied one by the usb wifi dongle the other by the Raspberry which handle the mount. To answer a question I have seen somewhere: the handle is needed to make it works. So there is no other room to connect a cam.The amount of the installation to drive an Orion Atlas mount is as follow:raspberry B 42€box for rpi 10€wifi dongle 10€usb/RS232 14€for a total of 76€ (100$) which is the half price of the skyfi orion device (in Europe).Unfortunately I have read somewhere that the usb inteface is unique and the 2 plugs share the same interface. So there is nothing to wait in term of performance. But maybe it is sufficient for autoguiding.Anat you are true, the MK808 looks to be a better alternative, wifi, bluetooth are included in device. But unfortunately there is only one usb plug. It would have been fun to make acquisition with the same device as the one that autoguide and drive the mount. But it seems not to be done even with the MK808.
Quote:Anat, I have a question for you, what you done to successfully compile GoQat on the raspberry.Thanks for your answer.

Quote:i'll check it out. just browsing thru the files you've uploaded, it seems like mount control is done thru CdC with the INDI interface, is that correct?
