Hi Simon

Various fixes have been made to indi-sv305-ccd since INDI 1.9.8.
In particular, the still unreleased INDI 1.9.9? has improved exclusion control and is somewhat less prone to freezing.
"Another annoying issue" can be improved by using the latest INDI and indi-svbony-ccd.
If it still freezes, killing indiserver or indi_svbony_ccd* may allow you to reconnect without rebooting.
* In your case, it is indi_sv305_ccd.

I believe that probably the next astroberry release will support up to INDI 1.9.8. You will have to wait further until the next release of 1.9.8.

I don't know the cause for the image being binary.
I think I have seen a similar phenomenon with SV405CC, but I wasn't concerned about it because the image was normal when I reconnected.

Hi Simon

Are you using astroberry ?
Since astroberry's INDI is version 1.9.7 as of July, I am thinking that the drivers and SDK for the SVBONY camera are not up to date.

Can you try to check the version of the SVBONY Camera SDK library by running the following command in terminal ?

ldconfig -p | grep libSVB

That is strange.
Can't the raspberry pi set the time with a command like the following?
sudo date -s '2021-01-04 13:04:00'
You might want to stop ntp once beforehand.

You used wrong option.
You should use -s option and launch date command with sudo.

Please see “man date”.

You should choose driver “SVBONY SV305” if you use SV305 or later model.

Arguments of addFITSKeywords has been changed form INDI 1.9.7.
You have to rebuild indi-3rdparty drivers when drivers run with INDI 1.9.7.

I have created an indi_sv305_ccd driver for the SV405CC.

After a little while, I'll send a pull request to GitHub.
The following changes were made in addition to the SV405CC support.

  1. Fixed a mutex conflict that occurred when two or more SVBONY cameras were connected.
  2. Fixed a mutex conflict that occurred when two or more SVBONY cameras are connected.
  3. Added break to case SVB_BLACK_LEVEL of Sv305CCD::Connect.

Thanks

Hi Collin

Did you receive your SV405CC?
I received mine last week.
I am testing it with SharpCap but have not done astrophotography yet.

If you don't mind, can you tell me when the SV405CC INDI driver will be released?

First implement and release the INDI control, then implement the SVBONY control. Or vice versa. Why not implement it in whichever way can be released sooner?

I too am waiting for SV405CC to ship, and SVBONY tells me it will ship at the end of this month.
Hopefully the SV405CC will arrive in your hands soon.
