Hi all, I'm one step away from being able to control my mount completely remotely, but I'm getting held up with the NexRemote Virtual COM port. The NexRemote works as long as I do not select a virtual port, but if I do select one, it just crashes. It happens in all compatibility modes, every time I try it.
My long-term hope is to remote into my home PC (done), trigger my scope's power outlet via wifi (done), then set the alignment on the PC without having to touch the controller (here's where I'm stuck). Then from there, control via SharpCap and Stellarium (done). The alignment step is missing because without the virtual COM port, Stellarium doesn't know the scope is aligned and thinks it's in some wacky position unless I set the alignment on the hand controller directly.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Is there another work around to this virtual port method, ie newer model hand controller, etc? Or is there a fix for this?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
