- Activating live video does open a window but nothing can be seen in it. The Live Video icon turns green as it should be the case. After closing the live video (the icon turns red) the QHY5M is "blocked" and no pictures can be taken. Trying to do so results in "QHY CCD QHY5-M- : "[ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1)"
A logfile is attached.
- Taking a 3s picture takes 6s plus data transfer. Taking a 5s picture takes 10s plus data transfer and so on. I believe a first attempt fails and a second attempt is successful, that's why it takes 2x the exposure time to take the picture.

This is the config.xml. I have to re-produce the dmesg output. Is there anything you're looking for in particular?

We tried a few months back, but we had several difficulties, with the firmware first, which wouldn't work with the camera at all and had to download a different one, and we were then unable to stop a capture without locking the camera up.
If anyone thinks it would be a good thing to try, I can get the camera and make a few tests.
Thanks for any info!
