Our IT guy at work phoned Future Technology at their headquarters in Glasgow which ironically is only down the road a couple of hours from me. Between them they decided there chip had lost its power input for whatever reason. PMd Vova and he is sorting me out. Thanks again.
Got replacement unit from RV today. Plug and play. Thanks Vova. Happykillmore at last.
I am running a neat little Asus EEEPc netbook and am having problems, as I cant change the com port assignment from Comport 3.
It runs XP Home Edition SP3
When I get to the Com port properties screen there is no tab for Port Settings, so I cannot change the assignment.
It appears Microsoft didnt consider this as necessary for a netbook.
Is there any way to get the HK app to run on port 3?
(Why cant stuff be easy??)
I use the same netbook. With GS plugged in i just open the com port drop box in HK and select com3. Seems a bit easy for you to not of tried already. Start HK after you plug the GS in.
Ok thanks I will try that.
I had issues with mine when I first hooked it up, and right enough it was the cable. Made my own up and it's now right as rain.
I consider myself quite computer literate, And My RVGS is also faulty.
Ive tried 5 computers and 3 different running systems, 8 USB cables and there is no connection with the Ground station period.
Id say this would be the same issue as yours yppart.
