Hi,
I have just re-installed Indi and KStars and my QHY5 has stopped working and gives this error [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1) .

Any thoughts on what I can do as I have lost a nights imaging and we don't get very many in the UK at the moment.

DRiver is version 2.5

Many thanks in anticipation

Chris

Yes, that error is due to QHYSDK v6.0.1

I reported the issue to QHY, hopefully they take action soon.

:-(

Is there any way to revert to an older QHY driver while we wait for the fix?

I just emailed QHY to see if they have an ETA for the fix. If it will take them a while, then I will revert to QHYSDK 5.1.0

So if I was impatient, could I download and run the install script from 5.1.0 on the qhy website www.qhyccd.com/file/repository/latestSof...yccd_V20190628_0.tgz to revert back in advance ? [on my Odroid-N2]

Thanks

[EDIT:} WELL I TRIED THIS AND IT DIDN'T WORK. In fact I messed things up a fair amount by fiddling.

Sharing Jerry's impatiance ;-) ...

Or is it possible to (re)install indilib 1.8.0 and use it with Kstars 3.3.6? If yes where to get the .deb file of 1.8.0? (my /var/cache/apt/archives only contains indillib 1.8.1)

Many thanks, Hans.

I also updated the 85-qhyccd.rules file.. does this help? Looks like QHY is still working on the QHY5 issue.

FYI If the updated 85-qhyccd.rules file is in KStars build: Build: 2019-09-22T09:43:47Z (I didn't check) then it did not help my config (Odroid-N2).

Thanks

Can you try this attached file? Unplug and replug the camera afterwards.

replaced the Sept 13th version of /lib/udev/rules.d with this one. Unplugged and replugged -> no qhy camera detected.
rebooted, and tried again. This time the qhy camera appears in the Indi Control Panel as a device, but it is yellow rather than green (connected).
I will fiddle a bit.
