Recently set up an Astroberry, all up to date and have it plugged into a Nikon and a IMX290 for the guide cam. However I have had nothing but trouble getting this to work nicely. I have seen posts with the same issues as mine (their pasted logs pretty much match mine) but after a lot of playing around with settings I have managed to get it to work, although only in 680px x 480px. If I move it up any higher it crashes and I have to reconnect. I have even put a fresh Astroberry on recently with no change.
INDI will also will not save the pixel size I specify so on every boot I have to set the 2.9um pixel sizes (and I even hit save configuration). Other configs such as my Nikon settings are saved no problem, it almost seems it looks and overwrites on connecting.
It looks like I have two separate issues here, saving the config I set (in the logs it defaults to 5.6um) and possibly v4l2 driver issues not playing nice with PHD2? The camera works flawlessly as a capture device in VLC and I can take photos no problem in OAControl, which doesn't use INDI.
Hi Grimaldi and thanks for the reply. I will boot it up this evening and report back. We are actually using a IMX290 (one of the ones from AliExpress) and as mentioned above it works perfectly on Mac or Windows, full resolution and everything so I don't think the cam is at fault.
Well IMX290 is the Sony sensor. And the question is in what package are you using it: Is it connected using USB? Or is it attached to the camera port of the Rasberry Pi (there's a connector on the printed circuit board)? Does it have a PAL/NTSC out? A quick search on aliexpress shows, that the sensor seems to be offered in all these packaging variants (judging from the pictures only).
What is it supposed to be compatible with? For example, the ZWO ASI 290 MM is using the same chip...
Sorry for delay, here are the lsusb logs and I have made a quick video to demonstrate the issue. Weirdly I now have 1280 x780 working, prior to this it would crash the same as 1080. Before all this I updated everything and updated PHD2 so this mayyyy have something to do with it? One thing to add, I have to set pixel size every time in the settings, it always loads the default (5.6um) when connecting.
