TheSkyX & Rasbian - Cannot Connect with Pro Cameras

Post by craigshelley » Thu Jul 25, 2019 4:27 pm

I have ASI183MM Pro, ASI1600MM Pro and an older ASI1600MM.

I'm running TheSkyX Version 10.5.0 (Build 12281). (as displayed in SkyX Screen)
ZWO X2Camera version 2.700 and Firmware version ZWO X2Camera Driver 19.3.6 and Model ASI SDK V1, 14, 0301 From SkyX Screen (as displayed in SkyX Screen)

Using the same USB cable and the same port on the RaspberryPi I can connect with the ASI1600MM but not the Pro cameras - either the ASI183MM Pro or ASI1600MM Pro.

Any suggestions for what to try?

More information:
When I try to connect, I get Error code 206 in TheSkyX.
I don't have anything plugged into the USB Hub on the cameras.
I don't have anything else plugged into the USB ports on the pi.
I have separate power supplies for the camera and pi.
I've tried different power supplies for the camera and pi.
I've used the same port and cable for the USB connection for the cameras on the Pi.
I've used different cables and ports for connecting the cameras to the Pi.
I've tried connecting the ASI1600MM-Cool (non pro) and an ASI120MM-S at the same time as the ASI183MM Pro. I can choose them in the Settings dialog and they connect fine. It is only the ASI183MM Pro and ASI1600MM Pro cameras that I cannot connect.

The problem is resolved. Software Bisque didn't include a .rules file that covered the latest ZWO cameras in the current Build for the RaspberryPi. Frustrating but it is working now.
