QHY CCD problem with frame dimensions

Hi again.

Yes I have already tested the live and still frame samples and they both work without any problems at all.
But INDI problems persist anyway.
I did that test when I installed the sdk manually from QHY also following that PDF file.

Anyway tonight I will test again and post results as asked.

"Where do I get the software they suggest? (for RPI)."

It gets installed when you install the SDK from the downloads page at QHY.
here : www.qhyccd.com/html/prepub/log_en.html#!log_en.md

The RPi version is the ARM Download version, most likely the Arm_64 for most recent RPi.

Well I have just made the test with the latest SDK and it seems that qhy6 does not support live frame, here are my results:

INDI is pointing to a different place: libqhyccd.so.21 => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libqhyccd.so.21
I have already replaced this symlink to the SDK one and the results are exactly the same.

Ok. let me send this to QHY. if you like I can send them your email if you PM it to me. I will ask them to contact you.

Thanks.

I imagine you tried reverting to an older SDK and see if that works in K-Stars? I couldn't find anything wrong in the base indi-qhy driver(s) yet.

Hi again and thanks for the assistance. If you wish you can send them my email, it's public you can see it on my profile picture in this thread under my Avatar (Envelope Icon).
Yes I tried several older versions unsuccessful. But the problem is very old, it has 3 years since the first report on the forum! So I think I could go even further in time.

UPDATE

I have just tried every single SDK on QHY page up to 20.05.08 to no avail. The older ones are not available for download anymore :-( so I can't test them out.

Just want to note, that it is not only a problem with the qhy6, as i have also the frame dimensions problem with my qhy2pro. So it is not only one camera that is affected.

The cameras are old, so the drivers are likely to break again as this has happened (more than once) before....

Maybe a solution could be to suggest qhy to make an old driver available as a 'legacy' driver and then create a indi_qhy_ccd_legacy using the legacy driver? And then don't update the legacy qhy driver unless for bug fixing (no new features!). The biggest problem might be to get the legacy and current qhy drivers installed at the same time?

That would really be the best solution in fact.

Just for the reference one of the problems has at least 3 years, so I am not very confident it will be solved, this is the original post:
indilib.org/forum/general/3839-qhy6-hang...process-in-ekos.html

But we never know....

Has anyone send the latest information, that it still does not work, to QHY?
I have worked with them in the past to resolve an issues like this and would happily do it again, but it is hard to do when they don't answer my emails any more....

Thanks to all who contributes :-)
