QHY 5r-IIC Ekos Strange Behaviour
I came across a strange issue with a QHY 5r-IIC camera. The Images don't download until I delete the config.xml.default file for the camera in the .indi folder. I haven't changed any config for it, so no idea what could cause the issue. The log is heavily spammed with the following two lines, when the problem persists:
[2019-09-03T00:10:58.580 CEST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - QHY CCD QHY5RII-C-91a7d : "[DEBUG] QHYCCD|QHY5IIBASE.CPP|GetSingleFrame|GetSingleFrame begin "

I had to delete it out because otherwise the log was 105mb so I couldn't upload it, after the deleted try you can see the debug messages when it works.

What could be wrong? The problem goes away when deleting the config, but it is annoying to do every time. Please have a look at it if you can!

Can you help us by pinning down what config would cause this? Maybe setting the USB speed or traffic causes this? Ok, so instead of deleting the whole config file, I want you to delete each XML property from it and then reload the driver and see what happens. When you delete the problematic property, the driver would start working again and we'd know what led to this.
When running qhy_ccd_test, I see this repeating forever ...
QHYCCD|QHY5LIIBASE.CPP|GetSingleFrame|GetSingleFrame ret=-1 chipoutputsizex * chipoutputsizey * cambits / 8=1228800
And Ekos does not download an image from the QHY.
