[amsat-bb] SatPC32 and rotor controller not working

It appears that my G6LVB controller is not driving the G5500 from SatPC32


I am running WinXP ==>  SatPC32 V12b ==> G6LVB interface ==>  G5500 rotor.
My rotor is not responding to SatPC32.  I have successfully used the cmds in
the G6LVB instructions with HyperTerminal to drive the rotor.  SatPC32 does
drive the FT847.  I have toggled the SatPC32 screen  R+/- without good
results. I am using the FTDI USB with the driver to virtual Com Port


As anyone had and solved this problem?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and 73,
