    Hi,

    I support a command line tool for sbig cameras on linux and recently had a request to implement fan control. In a proposed change to the software I used CC_MISCELLANEOUS_CONTROL to set MiscellaneousControlParams.fanEnable to 0 or 1.

    With the sbigudrv package by INDI guys, I get the following result:
    ST-7E - can turn fan off but cannot turn on
    STF-8300C - cannot turn fan off
    STL-1001 - can turn fan off but cannot turn on

    Switching to sbigudrv from ftp://ftp.diffractionlimited.com/pub/devsw/LinuxDevKit.tar.gz, I get
    ST-7E - can turn fan off AND on (working!)
    STF-8300C - cannot turn fan off
    STL-1001 - (results not available)

    So it sounds like there may have been a bug fixed that allows control of the ST-7E fan, but there is still a problem with the STF-8300C?

    INDI guys may have run across this in the past too, and not gotten a resolution:

    My experience is documented here:

    Thanks,

    Adam is off today. I suspect he'll be able to have a look at this on Monday.
