Also, DO NOT try and solve on Polaris, you are asking for it not to work, move to another part of the sky….mine never works on Polaris either…..

First of all, the platesolve has never worked very well with sims, especially if you pointed at Polaris, also try unbined and also with dark frame subtraction, bu I assure you the system does work very well…..

@ED
yes it is a nightmare, the thing is I have now swapped out the RPI for a Intel NUC i3 mini PC, which means everything has now been changed, and still the problem is there……so I don’t think it could possibly be an RPI kernel issue…the only thing I have not changed is the mount, for the simple reason it works perfectly on windows, and with INdI, using an EQMOD Bluetooth adapter….so I am completely stumped now….. :( :(

@Klaus
thanks, but I have tried on a fresh INdI install that has never had the BT adapter set up….I dont think that there are any settings in the mount control board that can be changed….are there…??

An update, have now changed out the RPI for an Intel i3 mini PC with Ubuntu 20.04, and all the issues are EXACTLY THE SAME, so the issue was not the rpi, so now everything has been changed and still does not work with EQMOD cable, tried three cables, but switch it over to the windows PC and all works fine…and all works fine on both Mini PC and RPI with EQMOD Bluetooth adapter. So anyone who can solve this gets by vote as a genius…… :)

Ok, I have managed to get the rc-local service running at boot up and create the rc.local file, not need to know what to put in them….

That sounds promising thanks, but I would not know where to start, I have been at this all day and not got anywhere, it will bind and work, but as soon as I reboot I have to bind again, there is no rfcomm.conf file and it creates an rfcomm0 port file but goes after I re boot….
I need real help here….

Hello all,
I have installed the latest Ubuntu 20.04 on a Intel NUC mini PC, and can bind the Bluetooth adapter which is the Shoestring astronomy HC-06 module, with the command 
 sudo rfcomm bind hci0 (MAC address) and it works great in ekos, BUT as soon as I re boot it is lost and the rfcomm0 file has gone, so I have to bind every time on re boot, the adapter is paired  and trusted…but am stuck 
Any ideas…. :)

1.6 DOES still show the warnings….just not every time, about 1 in 3 times of connection, but if you disconnect and re connect it seems to be fine….but still a pain….

@Scott,
ok, git VNC working now, it was a setting that needed changing, would not work with no screen connected, just black, so as my mini Intel NUC has a Mini HDMI port, and a mini display port, and they don’t do dummy plugs for the mini size HDMI, and didnot want an adapter sticking out, I bought a dummy mini display port dongle, as they do sell those albeit at twice the price, but that works perfectly and can set at 2560x1440….very happy…
Thanks for your help….Much appreciated…. :)
