Hello !

The new binary packages, supporting the SV905C are now available in the INDI Nightly Builds repository (except for arm64, don't know why build failed).

Best regards !

Hi.

I have a SV905C and I successfully installed the latest driver for SV305 (SV905C supported). The camera is connected but whenever I click streaming ON, the driver crashes. I tried it also in PHD2 and it also crashes. I connected the camera to USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, still no luck.

Hi Richard,

Thanks.

Do you have some logs of the crash ?

You only have the issue when streaming ? Still captures are OK ?
Are your still captures color or B/W

Did you try AstroDMX with your camera ?
AstroDMX is the official SVBONY linux support.
If AstroDMX crashes too, it's probably firmware related, and I will report it to SVBONY
If only the INDI driver crashes, my fault ;-)

It could be related to the ARM firmware. I did a full session of Moon captures at about 40 fps with my amd64 laptop without issues.

Best regards,

Hi Collin,

It crashes also whenever I click 'Guide' in the internal guider.

I did try AstroDMX in my RPi and to my surprise it is working.

I also tried 'dmesg' and I got 3 to 8 lines of 'reset high-speed USB'.

Hi,

I'm also struggling to get the SV905c working on astroberry:
2022-03-27T03:34:43: [ERROR] Error, open camera failed. 
2022-03-27T03:34:43: [INFO] Attempting to find the SVBONY SV305 CCD... 

It works fine in AstroDMX, so I don't think it's a problem with the power.

It also works fine in Kubuntu on an amd64 chip.

Here is the log from running the driver via the console:

Let me know if there's any other testing or logging I can do to help.

Thanks for all the effort!

Ok, so I hadn't built the libsv305 library. Once built, it connects and appears to work as expected.

I'm assuming it worked on the amd64 laptop because I had previously installed the binaries so the library would have been installed.

Will test it all properly when the clouds disappear!

Thanks,

Joe

Hi Richard,

Did you try to switch between slow and fast capture mode ?
Are you shure you use the lastest libsv305 package ?

Best regards,
