Super clarity, but surely we should not need a degree in electronics to understand this stuff?It doesn't help that Celestron doesn't even offer a branded "USB to R232 adapter". Currently (see other threads) owners of the new mini USB handsets are struggling to identify their cables.I started this thread because of the confusion caused by having so many different firmware possibilities as described in post #2, and people being stuck in a Windows 7 paradigm. It would also be good to use a consistent description of the USB to R232 serial adapter ... Celestron calls it something like a Nex Star RS232 cable (which isn't very descriptive).By the process I outlined in #1, both Star Sense Cameras and Nexstar HC's for BOTH my Evolution and SE4 were updated plus it updated my Evolution motor. Yeah, I think this is because the Evolution is a later mount. I haven't had any issues with CFM on any version of Windows, as long as you have the latest Java. Connect an ‘RS232 to serial’ cable (mine was supplied with my Nexstar SE4) to the HC port at its bottom; then connect the Serial to USB adapter to that; then plug that into the USB port of the laptop; so the HC (only) is now connected to laptop. it's an adapter, it has active electronics in it ... It would also be good to use a consistent description of the USB to R232 serial adapter ...

Different navigation devices are compatible with different updates and extras.This is the best explanation and workaround I've found: author provides an install program that will removes all of the incompatible drivers, makes a change so that Windows can never update the driver without your okay, and install the Version 3.3.2.102 compatible drivers that lets you use your older Prolific and yes, Asian knockoffs. Does it revert to the previous firmware version (see Whuppy question) or merely reset stuff like 'home/axis/mount/ GPS position'; and/ or default slew limits etc?If you, like me are still using an old Prolific USB RS-232 serial adapter you may have run into the "No driver installed for this device" problem. Anybody actually know or is it simply a last resort when all else fails!(I've been supporting beta testing of MC firmware, HC firmware, CFM updates, and Starsense HC/Camera updates since Star Sense was fielded so I've loaded, unloaded and reloaded firmware dozens of times to identify bugs and see that they get fixed before Celestron public release.) Dave in the Nexstar HC what does this actually do?Does it revert to the previous firmware version (see Whuppy question) or merely reset stuff like 'home/axis/mount/ GPS position'; and/ or default slew limits etc?
