i was using the asi120MM for several months without any problems. But now after an update of Kstars, Ekos and libindi as well as all 3rd party drivers I get the same loop problem. The funny thing is that the problem only appears with local connection to my laptop and my desktop computer both running Kubuntu 16.04. But the problem does not show up with remote connection to raspi (v1B+) where the camera is directly connected to the raspi without any USB hub. I also have to mention that I built libindi and the 3rd party drivers from source on the different devices respectively.
I already tried changing the firmware to "compatible" but the problem is still present.
I tried flashing my asi120 as per indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/1482-asi120...tus-failed.html#9961 and it worked for a while.
However I have since seen in instance of this looping.
For me rebooting the main PC that the camera is connected to and starting everything again seems to fix it. It s a real pain in the .....
Have this been fixed yet? Just got a new ASI 120MC and PixInsight seems to go into a loop of exposures and never gets an image. The ASI is connected to a Raspberry Pi 2. The camera works fine in windows.
Another "funny" thing... If I start indiserver and indi_asi_ccd and do the following on the RPi
It seems that it is working now. I flashed both cameras (the 120MM and 120MC) with the "compatible" firmwares from the ASI website and now they both work fine it seems. Also the RPi keeps its IP address when I run the above commands. Extremely strange, but great that it seems to be working now. Maybe this should be put in a FAQ somewhere?
