I create a following pull request. Could you review it?
> Stabilization of SVBONYBase::workerExposure #845
As far as we have tested, Crash and TIMEOUT have not interrupted image retrieval.
It would be helpful if you could test more often if possible, as there may be causes I am overlooking, such as timing, SDK characteristics, etc.
It seemed to me that the source code for the INDI driver for the ZWO camera only supported the monochrome video format Y8, so I was wondering if it didn't support monochrome 16bit.
Looking at ASICamera2.h and SVBCameraSDK.h, it seems that the method of determining the bit depth of monochrome video formats is different.
I will be re-implementing SVBONY's support for monochrome cameras soon. After the SVBONY SV605MC monochrome cooled camera is returned to me from the manufacturer, I will test it and submit a pull request.
I will fix the problem with the current SVBONY CCD INDI DRIVER video stream format not being initialized at the same time as the monochrome support.
Until then, please do not change the source code of SVBONY CCD INDI DRIVER.
Not using the Ekos Capture Module's Format for Video Streaming was not a SVBONY-specific problem.
[Live video] does not appear to use the Ekos settings, unlike [Capture a preview].
Since the problem is different from the driver for SVBONY, I have divided it into the following articles.
I'm experiencing issues with the new driver as well, with my SV605CC. I haven't been able to establish the exact pattern, but after reading this thread I think it is related to the issues setting gain. Basically my images are only sometimes coming out with any gain applied, at least that's how it appears.
I checked out the commit before the reimplementation, and everything's working as expected again. The issue is occurring very consistently, so if there's any testing I can do let me know. I did test with the current master commit, it exhibited the same gain-less behavior.
I'll try to rig up a test this evening. If the gain issue does re-occur, what kind of informational can I gather to help troubleshoot?
I read the code change, I saw the change to temperature handling. Last Tuesday was the first time I decided to try using the cooler, and was confused that it couldn't get as cold as it was supposed to and I thought my equipment might be defective, that change explains it exactly. Thanks for taking care of that.
