[amsat-bb] LVB Tracker with NOVA assistance

I am seeking some assistance in getting the LVB box to work with the Nova 
Software.  I have upgraded my equipment with a new computer W7 still using NOVA 
tracking software.  My old system P4 with WXP and the par port AEA ST-1 worked 
fine for many years.

So I have the LVB calibrated just fine.  Whatever I move the rotor to, the display 
on the LVB shows the same.  The software almaost works with the LVB but is off 
sometimes by maybe 15 degrees on AZ only.  Elev seems to be OK.  It also changes 
depending on the sat or the direction the ants are pointing.

Another odd part is that the NOVA shows the correct readings, but the small rotor 
screen is off.

I am wondering if it is the selection of rotor interface in the setup.  I find the 
only one to work is the Easy Comm, but I kinda thought that maybe the Yaesu GS-232 
was the one to use......

If anyone has any ideas maybe email me direct.
