Re: AP ASCOM driver runtime error

Retransmits indicate a hardware (serial port) problem. If you are using a USB/serial converter and the USB cable came loose the port might have disappeared. Sounds like the low-level USB/serial driver, if you are using one, could have caused the issue.

I'm seeing these warnings in the log.
000043 2014-06-05 23:43:54.189: Telescope: Warning : Retransmits: 1
000044 2014-06-05 23:43:54.211: Driver: Info : CommandString TX=':GZ#'
000045 2014-06-05 23:43:54.222: Telescope: Warning : Retransmits: 2

Does it mean I have a bad cable somewhere?
