This is exactly the point. My feeling is there are 2 options:
a) they don't know/understand this is possible (maintaining the driver in the open)
b) they think there is some IP in the driver.

I really hope it's a) and QHy can be persuaded to open their USB drivers. I hope I'm not overoptimistic :)

I don't agree it's useless. It's a step in the good direction. I can spend months trying to reverse engineer the protocol and release the sources. With protocol in hand the route is a bit shorter. In the current form NDA is too restrictive. It doesn't even allow to release binaries. I'm trying to convince QHY that this isn't the right way to go. Let's keep fingers crossed they release their protocol code in the open :)

Looks like sth is going to change. QHY started some sort of 'developers programme':
qhyccd.com/bbs/index.php?topic=5602.0
I'm planning to apply shortly :)

I take it current QHY driver no not work? You got logs from them?

Yep, they don't work. I'll try to collect some logs and post them here. It seems that the current firmware is correct though (the one from SDK). At least it loads properly and re-enumerates the camera as expected.

Does anyone know if there is some working driver for new QHY cameras (USB3 series)? I had some email exchange with Lee from QHY, but he stopped replying around a month ago. I went as far as loading firmware to QHY163. The SDK from github seems to be broken. Does anyone have any more luck with these cameras in Linux?

Looks like .img files that are shipped for new (3rd gen) QHY cameras are much bigger than .hex files that are used with older ones. So I don't think the new cameras use the same Cypress chip for USB communication. Let's wait what QHY replies.

Do you think the rest of the code will work? I guess loading firmware is not the last step. I contacted QHY about that. The camera is under beta testing so I can't disclose bugs openly if sth bad happens. Let's see what QHY says. I really don't want to brick the camera :)

Hi,

I recently recived QHY163 for testing (thanks QHY!). It works with Windows native drivers and ASCOM, but not with INDI. I checked QHY SDK and INDI sources and it looks like firmware for the camera is included but not used. Did anyone try running QHY163 with INDI with some success? Any hints appreciated.

Cheers,
milosz
