Re: APCC Pro with MSGBox V2

Yes, I am connecting to “ASCOM ObservingConditions” as the source.
In the “Select Driver” box, I have tried “ASCOM.OCH.ObservingConditions”, followed by setting the ASCOM driver for the MGBox V2 in the appropriate properties for the observing conditions hub. I have also tried selecting “Astromi.ch MGBox Observing Conditions” in the Select Driver box.
Both methods give the same results.
I have also tried enabling “Trace on” in the MGBox driver, but I haven’t figured out yet where I can go to read the trace.
Finally, I just found the ASCOM “Observing conditions Hub test harness”. When I run that tool and connect to the observing conditions hub, it shows the correct information (below). I was originally thinking that this would probably be a problem with the MGBox ASCOM driver (and I asked about it here to see how others were getting it to work with APCC), but now I suspect that it actually *is* an APCC problem, since the ASCOM test app works correctly:
