What two programs do you have attached to the two serial cables? Is one of
them TheSky6? If so, what refresh rate do you have for the position cursor? If
it is a fast rate, try changing it to update position every 2 - 4 seconds. If
your refresh rate for the position cursor is very fast, the servo may become
overloaded with requests for RA/DEC position and not have time to respond to any
other commands.
