If you read the Yahoo group you will see that Dan Gray the Sitech developer has published files and a walk through of how he installed the driver. He has requested help/volunteers with making the files easier to install for the average user.
So it looks like its almost there. So if you have any experience of Indi drivers and getting them ready to install. There is a Github to go to. github.com/JeffRossMT/sitech-indi-driver
There is a walk through on how to set the driver up but as you say it mentions
" Run SiTechExe on any machine on your local intra-net. Make sure it’s initialized.
Make sure you know the INDI port number in the SiTechExe configuration.
In SiTechExe, It’s on the misc tab in the /config/change config/ on the lower left part of the page.
You can change it if you want."
SiTechExe mentioned appears to be on a Win machine. I can confirm that the Indi pot number tab already exists on my Win version of SiTechExe. This need clarifying with Dan Gray.
So an update: I received a response from Dan and thankfully he explained everything in details. The SciTechExe can run on Linux (and RPI3), so it's not a huge issue anymore especially since the software supports a lot of features already. So we'll put together a guide for users on how to use INDI+SciTechExe. I'll probably also revise Jeff's driver to be more inline with INDI standards.
That`s great news.
Many thanks for your help in getting this sorted.
Have you any idea how the driver will be distributed? Will it be listed on the Indy site?
Many thanks for all your work on INDI.
Did anything further happen with the Sitec/Mesu driver? There has been no change to the Git or mention of it on the Sitech Yahoo group. I have been looking at the Indi device list but it has not appeared there yet.
well, I was suppose to login remotely to their system to test it out. I actually wrote the preliminary driver but it required testing. I think they were busy and I was busy at one time when we were supposed to test the driver.
Do you have SiTechExe running on RPI3? If yes, you can perhaps provide me with TeamViewer access to your RPI3 and I can remotely login to setup a development environment to test the driver.
I am working away from home at the moment. Can I PM you in a few weeks to set things up.
I have a RPi with Astroberry Server installed. I will be able to I will be able it to connect to the network and the Mesu/SiTech.
