QHY CCD problem with frame dimensions

Greetings nMAC,

Unfortunately, no solution for these problems so far. I also have the same problems (frame dimensions won't save and camera freezing after exposure stops). I also had a problem with guiding here: indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/10106-probl...n-guiding.html#74868 . Fortunately, the problem was solved by installing the latest SDK thanks to the useful advice. Fingers crossed if we can have a solution to the problems arising here. I noticed that Kstars on Astroberry (3.4 edition if I remember well) didn't have these 2 problems with QHY.

Greetings Georgios and thanks for answering the post.
Unfortunately I have already tried to install the latest SDK on QHY site (21.08.26), both on Linux x86_64 and MacOS Catalina and
both are recognized on the indi as the newer version, the connection is made but both problems persist.
I have reverted the KStars version to 3.4 version as you said but it's the same.

Regards

Anyone know how to fix this? I still get this error, see attached image...
Is it a problem with indi or the QHY driver?

It is suggest above that an updated qhy sdk fixes the problems. How does one update the sdk and make Indi use the new sdk? Would it be necessary to recompile Indi to do this?

You get it here and install it:
www.qhyccd.com/download/

You may have to thinker with it I remember I had so make new symlinks to the new libs.

I already tried several times and versions, I have installed it successfully, it detected and used by INDI Driver but neither problem was solved (dimensions and hanging after stop). At least on x86-64 platform.

Thanks, i will try it out.

Is the problem causing other problems for you or are you just ignoring the error messages and everything works perfectly well?

I just published libqhy v21.10.26 and it should be in the nightlies. You can try that, not sure if they fixed this particular issue since then.

I saved the geometry dimensions manually and it worked. Until I stop the exposure. The camera hangs and it disapears from the usb bus.
You have to disconnect it from the usb port and connect again. Try with the libqhy that Jasem put on the ppa. That was the last version I tried
and it did not solve the problems. Maybe you are luckier than me.

Thanks to both of you, I will try the nightly.

Have anyone presented the problem to QHY? I guess its a driver problem?

I think the problem is really on the linux SDK as the older version (wich I don't remember) on my RPi3 worked without any problems.
I am also using it with Windows (ASCOM and Native) and I don't have any problems with it so I know the problem is not the camera itself.
Maybe this issue came up on the very old qhy forum some time ago, but I dont think it was solved or even answered.

Yeah, my camera worked perfectly. Then i updated Indi+kstars and it gave this error.

I will write to qhy if the nightly does not fix the problem.

I have just tried my QHY6 with the latest updates and this is the new status:

1 - Resolution is still missing from the driver so I have to save it manually on INDI Panel.
2 - Capture module captures just fine, any exposure.
3 - Focus module works with still pictures and looping. If I stop looping in focus module the camera hangs after 3 ou 4 cycles of start-stop looping. .
3 - Guiding module works partially, still pictures work. Looping starts working but has soon as I stop it, the camera hangs and it's no longer available.

But.... the latest libqhy (both  libqhy_21.10.26 unstable~202110262312~ubuntu21.04.1_amd64.deb  and  libqhy_21.10.26 unstable~202110262315~ubuntu21.10.1_amd64.deb  ) still includes 21.9.10 and not the 21.10.12 (latest)?
Anyway I have downloaded and installed the latest SDK and the results are the same as above, so no solution yet.
