Niko,
the QHY183M is not implemented yet inside the 2.0 release. The driver supports the QHY183C camera only. We are working on that, so I suppose to finish it soon. Also, there still is problem with QHY128C camera and I work to fix this too.
Please note, we are reworking qhyccd driver, so please be patient...
Thank you,
Jan

Hi all,
based on reading of your messages, I would like to add the following:
The original qhy driver worked mostly for Windows, but there was a little support for Linux and Mac. The driver was and still is a combination of classical programming in C and basic OOP techniques in C++. This combination is very difficult to understand because you change some part of the code somewhere and this has an influence on other part(s) of the code. I will not go to the details, so what we are doing now is moving the code to follow the OOP rules.
Since version 2.0.0, there is, for example, quite new detection and support for multiple cameras. The driver should support up to 5 cameras now. This still requires a litte modification when user unplug some camera on the fly and plug another one. The driver itself utilizes asynchronous support (bulk transfer) from libusb including multithreaded support from linux, so it has to be done very carefully.
The main problem is, that I have to support all previously released driver's I/O funtions and do all changes behind that scene to be fully backware compatible. These are reasons, why it goes not so fast I would like to do... The good thing is that I have mostly all QHYCCD cameras to my stock, which helps with development very much.
Thanks for your understanding.
Jan

Hi guys

I received word from Jan that SDK version 2.0.5 supports the QHY183M. I downloaded the SDK and was able to compile the testapp. It detects the camera fine and isn't complaining at all.
All tests were on a linux PC, there is no ARM SDK to download so far.

Hey Jasem

SDK 2.0.6 is out.
If you tell me how I can compile the stuff myself, I stop asking you to do it for me :)

The QHY183M has a bug in 2.0.5 that limits the exposure to 1 s, anything higher is just sending a flat image filled with identical numbers. I hope this is the bugfix that addresses this issue.

Many Thanks!

Silly question maybe, but is there a way to set Gain and Offset from the 'CCD' tab?

Hello,
I decided today to substitute my QHY183M to my Nikon 5300 with which I had lot of troubles yesterday (I will explain it in another post).
I have used the QHY183M successfully on May as I was on linux Mint 18.3. I switched to linux Mint 20 (Ulyana) on my notepad on July.

But todaythe cam is no more detected.
I don't know if it comes from the Cypress WestBridge driver of linux or from QHY sdk or anything else. If somebody have any idea.
I am a bit desperate with none of my imagers working good.

Here are the results of tries to detect the camera:

Hi,
I work for QHYCCD company and also develop Java software for them and TSX pluging. Yesterday, I have noticed the same problem you have explained here after uploaded the latest version from the QHYCCD SVN repository, so all my applications stopped working. So, the current version of the driver returns zero detected cameras even if some are visible on the bus using lsusb command.
I have already reported this bug to quy who is developing their driver. He told me, he had several times changed scan usb function so, he is looking on this problem to fix it asap. Sorry for that problem, maybe you could download older driver.
Than you,
Jan

Thank you Jan, but how and where can I download older drivers ?
I have tested firecapture with the qhy183M but the problem looks to be the same. But in this case I am not sure that Firecapture allows this camera usage.
