So far as I can tell, the chronological order of events that caused the abort was as follows:

• The TORU TV transmitter in the SM was activated by the crew, which
   interfered with the data being sent between the KURS-A on
   Progress and the KURS-P in the SM.
• The KURS-A on Progress interpreted this interference as conflicting
   commands to its pre-programmed commands, and so initiated the
   "cancel dynamic operations" command that instructed Progress to fly
   past the ISS.

The only question that remains is: Who turned on the TORU TV transmitter? :o

I'm not sure, but I think it was Skvortsov.

But I don't understand it, wasn't he supposed to turn it on?

The correct question is: why this interference?

The Toru TV system has to be turned on in case of the need of an emergency Toru use if Kurs failed.

In order to prevent a new interference and repetition of the flyby action, the Toru will not be in standby during the next attempt. This procedure has the inconvenient that the crew could not proceed with a manual (Toru) rendezvous if the automatic mode (Kurs) fails.

Had a good visual observation of ISS (9807A) and the Progress-M-05M (10018A) at around 21:55 GMT from  UK for about 6 minutes of this lengthy pass.

The ISS was 'spotted' first - cannot really miss it ! - but then noticed,in front of ISS,was the "much dimmer" Progress-M-05M freighter.

Could not make out any other vehicles associated with ISS at that time.

Unfortunately, looks like inclement weather tonight will stop any visuals from my location here in UK .

The attached image shows the predicted path of the two vehicles at time of observation and what the 'visual' was like for me.

At time of prediction (21:57:40 GMT) the ISS was predicted to be about 510 km from my site at an azimuth of 141 deg 37.667 min and altitude of 43 26.970  while the Progress-M-05M was at 572 km away and at azimuth 132 deg 55.910 min and altitude 37 deg 10.275.

Have had some spectacular views of ISS this last week or so with great co-operative weather (for a change) in UK ! With ISS being in 'constant sunshine' last few days visuals have ben great !

Oops !

"...ISS (9807A)..." should read "...ISS (98067A)..."

Apollo-phill: I too managed to see Progress M-06M & the ISS flying formation last night! They went into cloud pretty quick, but seeing two spacecraft in the same view always takes my breath away! :D

Vehicles are coming off the coast of Africa.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. -- Douglas Adams

Director of Flight for the Russian segment of ISS, Vladimir Soloviev said:

"The commission [FROB] have completed its work. () The reasons are two: 1. excess noise in the UHF channel and 2. a cosmonaut accidentially pressing a button."

He added that he is not gong to blame the cosmonaut because the button was not well protected from accidential pressing.

(adding from myself: reason #2 came first and aborted the automatic approach, reason #1 prevented manual take-over; also, waiting for Mr. Oberg's reaction LOL)

Progress M-06M is to Undock on August 31

27.08.2010

Progress M-06M / International space station (ISS) attached mission is almost over. ISS-24 crew finalizes accommodation of the items to be disposed of in the vehicle.

On August 31, at 15:19 Moscow time, an undoking command for the automatic cargo vehicle will be issued from the ISS. Three minutes later the Progress will be separated from the docking port on the Zvezda module. The vehicle has been docked to this port on July 4.

After separation, the Progress will continue flying autonomously. During this autonomous mission, Radar-Progress technical experiment is to be carried out.
Progress M-06M is to be deorbited over the remote area of the Pacific on Sept. 6.

Roscosmos PAO: "Astronomers in Irkutsk Monitor Autonomous Mission of Progress M-06M".

On August 31, Progress M-06M undocked from the International Space Station. Its autonomous mission will last until Sept. 6, with the purpose to conduct space experiment Plasma-Progress. Physicists of Irkutsk will monitor the autonomous mission of the vehicle to record Progress' maneuvers and to investigate ionosphere response to operations of its thrusters.
A powerful radar for these studies is located about 100km from Irkutsk, installed by the RAS' Institute of Solar Physics. Other Russian ground observatories and optical telescopes will also record maneuvers of the Progress.
