I have AutoStar Suite running an a Windows 7 Laptop, I get the handbox controller up using F9 from the Telescope/protocol menus and it works fine except for one issue, so far. This is on a DS2114. I'm sure it will work on my LXD75 as well.
> The handbox window shows on the PC as a black window but my problem is that no handbox information is displayed in this window.
> The first line of the 497 handbox displays in the "margin" of the window at the top. i.e. in the picture frame around the black window but the second line shows nowhere. Does anyone have a solution?
> The text to voice works. it's fun but the old computer voice leaves a little to be desired.
> Also, if you disconnect the F9 handbox control, and connect via the serial port under the protocol menu, you can get a simpler handbox control window that DOES display both lines of text but no menu structure like the other handbox. Does anyone know why two implementations of the hanbox functions? Were they supposed to be used for different purposes?
> Thanks in advance,
