Using a SX Hx916 with Maxim DL

Recommended Posts

I've loaded all the drivers for the Hx916 and then opened up the software that comes from Starlight Xpress and I'm able to take an image... So all seems OK.

In Maxim DL go to

Camera Control...Setup Camera, Select SX Unviversal, then Advanced and finally Hex File manager.

Now no matter what I do it always says Unknown in Currently installed HEX file.

I follow the instructions for Hx916 and then try and connect but I get an error could not initialize CCD camera (1002).

I go back into HEX File manager and it still says Unknown in Currently installed HEX file.

Anybody have any ideas in what I'm doing wrong.

Hi Penfold.

I have exactly the same problem.It all used to work but then I added a lodestar and also updated the version of MAxim.

Did you find a solution ? The SX bulletin board suggests the use of the SX hex file and not any of the maxim hex files. Have you tried that ?
