hi Guys

I bought an EQ6 about 15 years ago and upgraded with Rajiva's MCU-Upgrade.
If I run the EQ6 with Skychart and the internal driver, then the control of the mount works without problems.
If I use the Indiserver indi_lx200basic with Kstars then he set the connection to the driver but more does not happen.

This is the Log from Indi-Kontroll in Kstars.

2017-06-09T07:05:21: LX200 Basic is offline.
2017-06-09T07:05:01: Object below the minimum elevation limit.
2017-06-09T07:05:01: Error Slewing to JNow RA 1:42:23 - DEC 10:00:04
2017-06-09T07:04:48: Synchronization successful.

In the "sync" of an object, I see the cross for a second, but immediately disappears. If I want to "slew" on a object happens nothing.

I can still remember on a libindi version that worked. But that has been many years ago.
I have run on the server the latest PPA from Jasem and connect with Kstars from the client.

What should I do to run the EQ6 with the Indi_lx200basic driver?
I would like to use ekos but as long as the assembly does not work it is useless.
I've already read that many EQ6 users with MCU upgrade, have problems with the driver.

Is there a solution for this?
Is there no EQ6 driver where fix this problem ?
If I can help solve the problem, so let me know.

Sorry for my bad english, but google Translate is my friend ;)

Best regards
