Help with CCD Cooler Power setting

I'm using an SX CCD SXVR-H694 camera. When trying to get/set my CCD's cooler using

indi_getprop "SX CCD SXVR-H694.CCD_COOLER_POWER.CCD_COOLER_VALUE"
I get a message that this camera does not have such a property. It DOES however have the COOLER ON/OFF properties.
How am I supposed to control the cooler's power or temperature setpoint? Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

That's quite odd... there is no temperature set-point control for this driver at all?

Some of the early CCD cameras were like this, cooler on/off but no set point and possibly no ccd temperature. Some earlt ATIK cameras were like that. In that case the camera properties reflectd this.

As far as I can tell, when running indi_getprop, there's no way to control the temperature setpoint. When I ran this CCD using Starlight's own GUI software, there was an option to set the temperature setpoint.
The only available properties I see for this CCD, relating to temperature/cooling, are:
  • CCD_TEMPERATURE.CCD_TEMPERATURE_VALUE
  • CCD_COOLER.COOLER_ON
  • CCD_COOLER.COOLER_OFF

CCD_TEMPERATURE.CCD_TEMPERATURE_VALUE is used to set the temperature setpoint given that CCD_TEMPERATURE is read-write property and not just read-only.

Ohhh ok, thank you! I'm very new to the INDI Library so I'm still figuring things out. I really appreciate it!
