This hobby is so frustrating. By the time I was setup last night it was 12 midnight before I was imaging due to PHD issues. Ive tried everything from fresh install to literally not using it at all. Run a diagnostics and its come back with 17 issues. Can anyone tell me whats going on?

No specific idea but a scroll through the txt file at the end implies problems with date and time, 2 odd years are given.

A parse of the file indicates a Meade LX200 (GPS), is this correct. If so have you updated the firmware to account for the GPS Rollover bug. As that could account for the reports of errors in the date and time that the txt file appears to imply.

You may have to enter the menu and disable the GPS and then enter the data yourself as a custom location, the at the Align stage you supply Date and Time the old fashioned way. That would hopefully allow you to get somewhere in the short term but new firmware would be required eventually. The Rollover caused the firmware to interpret the now new Week 0 incorrect. So the fix is firmware not GPS.
