Raspberry Pi 4 + Linux Driver 2.7 Crash (TheSkyX)

Post by mcphailtom » Thu Jul 25, 2019 10:25 am

Hi all,

Having some trouble with my long time setup having switched from a Pi 3 to Pi 4. I've configured the software as:

- Raspbian Buster 2019-07-10 (with a post install dist-upgrade to kernel and Pi firmware)
- TheSkyX (Build 12281 - Latest Daily Build)
- ZWO X2 Driver 2.7

My hardware is:

- ASI 1600MM main camera
- ASI 174MM mini autoguider

The 1600 is connected directly to the Pi (with DC power plugged in as well) and the 174MM is connected to the USB hub on the main camera

TSX segment faults when I try to connect to the 174 specifically. The 1600 works fine by itself. I have tried connecting the camera directly to the Pi, through a powered hub, and though the main camera hub with identical results.

Hi Sir,
Looks like your 1600 is a cool version. So have you tried adding the external 12V power supply to 1600?
Beside, please try to connect your 174 to your PC to make sure the camera is OK.
Thanks

I have a simular issue, my ASI174 mini connects but timesout during exposure. ASI 174 works fine when connected to TSX through OSX and Windows 10, so it is not a camera issue,
Equipment:
1. Raspberry PI 4
2. TSX Pro up todate
3. 1600mm pro
4. ZWO EFW
5. ASI 174 mini

Is it the same person who communicates with me about this issue by email?
If it is, please check the email.
