Hello .

With capture target set to RAM and Upload settings set to client the image file doesnt get transmitted through to ekos my desktop PC (client)machine.
It will only work in "save local" mode.

I get an exit code -1 error when trying to get the astroberry to transmit the file to my PC ( save client mode)
See last line of log output below

Could i get some pointers pls?
Im at a loss

I am doing a little better in terms of getting it to transmit a file to the client now
But the fille isnt recognised as a RAW file in siril or darktable. Complains that the filehas unknown format.
If i remove the .arw extension it opens as a jpeg in gwenviwer.
Could it have something to do with the below from my log file.
capt0005.arw) Folder: (/) Delete from SD card? (false) "
[2020-09-26T11:56:26.831 BST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - Sony DSLR Alpha-A7r III (PC Control) : "[DEBUG] Could not determine image size

when i try and set the image width/height in the settings tab i get
2020-09-21T09:50:44: [ERROR] Subframing is only supported in FITS transport mode.
As far as i am aware im just using the standard resolution size for the camera?!

8000x5320.
What frame size is ekos expecting me to set for an A7RIII?

Resolved.
i believe the subframing message was a red herring.With my a7sii i only needed to start camera profile via the INDI web manager interface on astroberry but with the A7RIII i needed to and manually start ekos within astrroberry desktop and then start the profile from within ekos app.

Also tested it ok with stellamateOS
