TOPIC: Impossible to connect 2 QHYCCD

Impossible to connect 2 QHYCCD 3 months 1 day ago #18025

Dear Members,
i am new to this forum and have just begun to set up EKOS / INDI on my Asus X750L Laptop running MINT Linux 18.2.
I got two QHYCCD Cameras 1. QHY9M with old Filterwheel and 2. QHY5L-II M. Both are connected to the laptop
via USB 2.0 ports. The problem is that i can only run at a time. If both are connected one of them is idle.
Anyone a idea what might be wrong?
Thanks
Robert

What do you mean Idle? Do you get two CCDs in INDI control panel or just one?

1. Check that both are detected. run lsusb and check both CCDs are online and detected.
2. Attach logs from QHY INDI driver.

Hi Jasem

thanx for the quick reply.
If i check lsusb no devices are listed just two empty port slots.
I got two CCDs in the control panel but only one working.
If i disconnect the active and connect the other one via control panel its working
and vice versa. Where will if ind the logs?

Hi Jasem,

after a break i got my raspberry 3 up and running and installed indilib and kstars.
This will be my future setup whereas the postings before relied on my test setup
with a laptop.
So the problem persisted. I attached 2 QHYCCD cameras to the rpi3 (QHY LM-II and QHY9 with old filter wheel).
Only when one device is connected a capture completes. with both neither of them is operating.

I informed QHY and they said they will look into it.

Thank you Jasem.
I still have the hope that the problem will go away when i attach a powered USB 2.0 Hub.
Still waiting that it will be delivered.

Thanx
Robert

Just a thought...could it be that the qhy driver should be invoked with an argument that
specifies the USB port to use. If the driver is loaded only once (because of the same camera manufacturer)
the cameras are concurrenting for the same port or the second is not handled by the driver.
