Hi John, maybe I do not understand what you did, but if it was on the same machine, are you sure, that COM port was released by previous driver (ASCOM) before you tried to use it by INDI? Peter

It looks Windows CdC has already INDI support! Yes, in this case it should work as well. Peter

Hi John,

I'm not sure if I do understand...

If you have the option to use Linux on both server and client side (RPi or Android is enough), forget about Windows and ASCOM and use INDI or INDIGO server as the server (with LX200 driver) and CdC with INDI as the client. It will definitely work.

If you need to use Windows on server side and Linux on client side, you have to use INDI Server for Windows as the server and CdC with INDI as client and it will probably work as well even if there is some issue reported against recent CdC build.

If you need to use Linux on server side and Windows on client side, you're probably out of luck for now, but INDIGO-to-ASCOM bridge for telescope will be available soon and in this case you can use INDIGO server as the server and CdC with ASCOM as the client.

VM is usually just waste of time... :) Peter

Hi,

I'm not sure it CdC for Windows can use INDI protocol. Nevertheless if it does, you have to install ASCOM driver for your mount (try e.g. this one: pixelstelescopes.wordpress.com/advanced-lx200/ ) and than it should appear in INDIServer device list.

Oh yes, this may be the problem. It depends on what virtualisation you use, but e.g. on VirtualBox I never got anything working correctly. With VMWare it is much better (I'm working on mac). Peter

Everything what you did seems OK. SX Ultrastar is known to work with universal SX driver and it looks, that there is some issue on USB communication level. My only idea is to turn libusb logging on by inserting

libusb_set_debug(ctx, LIBUSB_LOG_LEVEL_DEBUG);

somewhere after (line 192 in file sxccdusb.cpp)

int rc = libusb_init(&ctx);

to see, what's going on. Peter

If it doesn't work with sudo, it is not write access issue. But I don't know what's wrong. Does it work with INDI driver? Are you sure, that there is no other application blocking the access to the camera? Peter

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
