Hi, and happy new year

First I wish to thanks Jasem for all the wonderfull features of Indi/Ekos he already add...but...yes there's a "but", I think this cool/warm by step is a very good idea.
At this time I do it manually, setting the temp parameter step by step to avoid (or less) stress on the peltier stage and camera.
Is there a simple way to come in the part of ekos where we specify temp, and so comunnicate with this part ? Eventually, through the indi server ?

Regards

Hi all,

Beeing unable to run a T7 clone of the asi120m :blush: , I'm tempting to use another cmera for guiding under linux.
I own a DFK23U445 from The Imaging Source.

I tried it with DMK and V4L2 driver under linux, none of them seems to work. (Are they the same ?)
The camera is working with the tcam-capture software I have download here so the cam is OK under linux but I don't know which of the drivers I have to use for INDI and if I need to add some special option

If someone can help, I will appreciate a lot !:woohoo:

I already sent him an email where I noticed the ln - s process.
He replied me good news.
But nothing else because it's, for him, an old driver.

Yes I tried binning too. But this is a software binning and I 'm not sure it is done in the camera before it send images via USB.

Yop...sadly, it happens to me.... Grrrr

Third, USB bandwidth at 40.
Thanks! One more step, make sure it's on 8 bit mode.


Ok, I confirm :
No hub and nothing else. I'm testing the camera on RPi3B+ alone by day (right now).
Bandwidth is on 40, Depth on 8bit.

And it doesn't work.

I allready flash the firmware but how can I be sure that it is the good one ?
I tried many parameters : restrict to 640x480, in strealming AND picture controls. I move bandwidht too but go back to 40 and even tried 16bit mode ;-)

Here is cpature of my ekos sreen with the puzzle...I have an average of 1/4 4 images like this.
