On the "Satellite Tracking" window, please click the "Satellites" menu at the top.
In the "Name" box, scroll down to the satellite you're working with. Make sure that the RX & TX frequencies there are fully spelled out in Hz (no decimals!)
Click Add/Modify so that any changes you make become the active settings for that satellite.
Back on the main "Satellite Tracking" window, check the box for "Use OmniRig". Then click the "UP + DN" button.
When I follow those steps, my FT-857 is automatically put into SPLIT mode with one VFO tracking the uplink freq and the other tracking the downlink freq specified in PSTRotator.
(FYI, I always manually check on the FT-857's menus to verify that the VFO being used for transmit has the CTCSS enabled and at the correct frequency --- I don't depend on PSTRotator to set that automatically. In other words, I let PSTRotator change the up & down freqs but I still manually set everything else such as CTCSS, power, mode, etc.)

I'm using PstRotator with Omnirig to control my new FT-857D. I managed to get the computer and radio to connect, but I cannot get the TX and RX frequencies to display on the OmniRig side of PstRotator, My settings are... Rig Type: FT-857 Port: COM 3 Baud Rate: 4800 Data Bits 8 Parity: None Stop Bits: 1 RTS: Low DTR: High Poll int ms: 500 Timeout: 4000
When in connects to the radio it only shows the RX frequency in OmniRig and it keeps changing the radios VFO to display a shortened frequency number... instead of 145.950 it shows 145.95. I then get a TX ERROR msg when you push the PTT and I end doing a reset to get the radio out of this mode. I'm stumped...
