Plate solve works - but sync does not


I am using SGP since half a year now, and I extremely like it.

In my last sessions, I noticed a strange behavior. When I set up my equipment and tried to sync my mount, nothing happens. The strange thing is that I can manually take an image and plate solve it quickly using the same parameters which I use for sync. But sync always runs for an infinite duration.

When I then close SGP, power-off my mount, and then restart everything, everything works well. Plate solve and sync quickly yield the desired result.

So… this behavior is a little unusual. It is not so nice since I have to restart, and thus to reconnect the camera/mount and again start the (slow) cooling process. Does anyone here know why this sync issue happens and what I can do to fix or avoid this behavior?

Just some side notes. I am using a CEM70 mount and an ASI2600MC camera. SGP3.x (latest update of version 3) on a mini-PC. I connect all my equipment though ASCOM 6.4 SP1. I use ASTAP for plate solving or anserv for blind solve. My main solver is ASTAP.

Would really be great to get some help.
Thank you very much, and all the best,
