This usually means, that device is readonly and this situation should be handled by usb rules. Try to find device in /dev/bus/usb/XX/YY to check if you have write access. Alternatively you can try to run your code as root to make sure that this is the reason. Peter

Maybe try /lib/udev/rules.d instead and reload rules by "sudo udevadm control --reload-rules" command. Peter

I suspect that USB device is in read-only mode. Did you installed USB rules?

And yes, it is historical typo in the source code, it is actually bulk transfer :) Peter

Hi, I found this article

diffractionlimited.com/help/maximdl/Star..._Xpress_MX7C_USB.htm

and it looks like this device needs a different kind of driver. But maybe you can try the same trick as recommended for MaxIm (upgrade to universal firmware).

Ben, as Jasem wrote, it is not necessary to use INDI for this at all. Look at sxccdtest ( github.com/indilib/indi/blob/master/3rdp...ndi-sx/sxccdtest.cpp ) for example how to use interface library ( github.com/indilib/indi/blob/master/3rdp...indi-sx/sxccdusb.cpp ) directly. Peter

Michael, this camera is supported by libdc1394 ( damien.douxchamps.net/ieee1394/cameras ) and thus it should work with INDIGO IIDC driver directly. INDIGO video stream mode is not supported by EKOS, but you can still use it as guider in standard CCD mode. Peter

Hi Antonio, is it connected directly or to USB hub? It looks like hardware (e.g. cable or powering), not driver issue... Peter

You can combine INDIGO and INDI, just add INDI driver to indigo_server command line with -i switch in front of driver path. Try

indigo_server --help

for more options and connect to the same port as used by INDI protocol with browser to set other options.

It looks, that you have some conflict with previously installed SBig USB rules.

INDI and INDIGO have actually completely different architectures, intended use and also licenses. But INDIGO is backward compatible with INDI on network protocol level, what is probably sufficient for use with Ekos. Peter

Use of USB 2.0 firmware in USB 3.0 hardware is probably a bad idea, but we had issues with this camera in INDIGO as well and is hopefully fixed now (at least at mac and for the camera I have). You may try it and if it will work, Rumen can backport it to INDI.

Peter Polakovic replied to the topic 'Ekos scheduler and 'warm ccd' on shutdown' in the forum. 1 month ago

I checked the driver (with control pane, not Ekos and with Atik One, but it is the same camera type as 383L) and set cooler on/off seems to work. But there are two potential issues:

1. Whenever camera connected, driver reports, that cooler is set off, but it is not necessary true.

2. When temperature is set and cooler is off, it is set on automatically. So if you will turn it off and set temperature to +5C, you will actually turn it on again. I think that this does make a sense.

It means, that you can integrate it with your own solution, but can't just resell without any other added value. Peter
