On the indi panel, image settings tab. Fill the values and save.

752x582 for usable field resolution or 800x596 for full resolution.
After saving this values it won't give an error anymore. 
But you have to do it everytime the libqhy sdk gets updated.

Did you save the camera options?
I don't have errors now, where are you seeing yours?


Ok I have just saw them. They only appear when the camera is in loop mode, in still mode you don't get them:

Yes, those I also get! Additionally I get "The calculated field of view is out of bounds" error and it seems that indi is not calculating the focal length from the plate solved image.

I think I will try to write QHY, it seems to be their issue....

Yes I have those too because it's not getting the resolution/pixel data even if we save it.
Go for it! I tried several messages to them on the old forum but I didn't get lucky.
Maybe you are :-)

I just wrote to them. When I contacted them a few years ago (by email) about another driver issue, they were extremely helpful so I'm having high hopes also this time :-)

Wrote to two email addresses from QHYs webpage and not a single answer. Very disappointing :-(

Is there any way to work around this bug ? It has been in indi for over 6 months now, so it seems that it will not be fixed any time soon.

That's what I was afraid... no response.

In the case of frame dimensions, in spite not being the ideal, the frame size could be set directly and automatically by code on the INDI Control panel UI Fields (the read only ones) as a workaround
or assuming a fixed dimension on the driver code when this dimension returns 0 for this camera model. Or even asking the sensor dimensions like the DSLR Driver.
The hanging after stop problem however is way difficult to debug.

Let me look at the QHY6 in the INDI-QHY driver. I believe the driver gets it's frame dimensions from the QHY SDK.

What version of SDK do you have installed? I will do some checking on my side.

One thing I see is your SDK is older.

How is your setup currently? Are you running INDI-Server on a raspberry pi?

Can you install the latest SDK?

Let me know.
