okay done. I managed to turn OFF the indi_rpicam option in cmakelist before it starts compiling. So my next question is will this cmakelist.txt change when performing git pull?

Thanks

Thanks Rob. Any guide on how to change the cmake build command in the script to turn off the driver(s) I don't want?

Actually, I am trying this Raspios arm64 image right now. downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspios_arm64/...os_arm64-2020-08-24/

How to exclude this indi_rpicam when compiling indi_3rdparty????

This is something I found when I search for answers, www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=143539

Maybe some expert in coding can help up?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I found I can't remote into the box using hostname but only IP. Is this only happen in this beta version? I remember the previous version can. Please confirm..

Hi all,

After spending almost a week to find out what is the culprit that causes my ASI120MC(non-S) having inconsistent frames when looping and guiding, last night I tried my last possibilities and it successfully solved my USB 2.0 camera issue (maybe temporarily?? Let see).

What I've done is I downgraded the VL805 firmware in rpi4 to 0137ab which I found this is the most stable firmware from VIA ever. But with one condition, I believe you will lose the abilities in SSD booting and other features from the latest firmware implementation. Which for me a microSD card enough for everything. I do not need an SSD hard drive or whatsoever to boot. :) That's your choice.

For those who wish to keep his USB 2.0 guide cam, you can drop by this website to read up and download the 0137ab firmware file. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=250990

I already temporarily disable the rpi-eeprom-update with this command < sudo systemctl mask rpi-eeprom-update > and change the firmware release status to stable by issuing this in command < sudo nano /etc/default/rpi-eeprom-update >

So, I hope it does help and save some money on replacing things that not yet broken. :)

Clear skies.

okay. Looks like you are also using the ASI120MM Mini guide camera. It is interesting to see whether this caused by it or not.

Mine also set to 8 bit and with compatible firmware a long time ago. I plug almost everything on my powered 7 ports USB hub. But except the EQMOD cable which is directly connected to pi4 USB 2.0 port. Now headache about this asi120mc. I spent few days to troubleshoot it but still........ :(

BTW, I am using qhy168c with asi120mc.

Thanks

Hi Terry,

I saw that you are using the ASI120MM (which is USB2.0) version? my setup almost the same as yours with two USB cables running to the PI. But do you experience skipping frames when guiding? my ASI120MC recently get lost stars very easily because of the skipping frames.

Let us know more.

Hi all,

How to stop indi_asi from updating? because I found out the latest ZWO SDK causing my ASI120MC having frame skipping issue. I tested 1.14.1227 without issue and stable. So, Jasem teaches me how to downgrade to that version and now I do not want it to get updated anymore.

Any advice?

Tom
