Hi, i updated SBIG-INDI-Driver along with INDI 1.9.7 and noticed, that my filter-wheel is no longer recognized in EKOS.
I checked the source-code and identified a problem in sbig_ccd.cpp at line 2194 ff.
if ((res = GetCcdInfo(&gccdip, &results4)) == CE_NO_ERROR)
m_hasGuideHead = true;
m_useExternalTrackingCCD = results4.capabilitiesBits & CB_CCD_EXT_TRACKER_YES;
LOGF_DEBUG("TRACKING_CCD Extended CCD Info 4. CapabilitiesBit: (%u) Dump Extra (%u)",
... here the driver returns in my configuration!!
m_hasGuideHead = false;
LOGF_DEBUG("%s: CCD_INFO_EXTENDED2_TRACKING -> (%s). No guide head detected.", __FUNCTION__, GetErrorString(res));
If the driver is unable to identify a GuideHead at the camera, it simply returns withou further checking the filterwheel configuration, which follows the above code.
I checked the driver versions and the latest, which works with my SBIG STF 8300M, was version 1.9.4 !
In version 1.9.4 the driver simply continues checking all possible configurations and does not return.
In the new version 1.9.0 i've got issues with the delivered EQMOD-Driver.
It causes several messages ...
Error: Communication failed -> tty write failed, check connection: Bad file descriptor
... indicating some device file handling problem.
Please find details in the log attached.
Thanks for your support.
In the new version 1.9.0 i've got issues with the delivered EQMOD-Driver, which i didn't have in the previous version.
There are several messages indicating wrong file descriptor handling.
