  1. Maybe Windows displays the Exif data then. I'll look into it. However, this request still solves the issue for those who have time issues, particularly those who save files to the camera. Even having the incorrect time/date stamp in the Exif data is just wrong and can so easily be prevented by having the software do the sync on connection if set by the user. Isn't this The whole point of automated software? Surely this is a very easy feature to add. We know it's possible as EOS Utility does it. Note, I don't have that installed and don't want to have to use another piece of software to do s
  2. Well see it or not, it is happening on my system. Just re-checked my folders that BYEOS saved the images into and the file date in Win Explorer is 01/01/2000 (The default date that the camera resets to). All the RAW and JPG files have this date stamp. PC time is correct. If I set the camera date/time manually, then the files date stamp is correct. This happened in Win7 x64 and now Win10 x64 with v3.1.4 and a Canon 60D And yes, the request is to just set the camera time form the PC time for my situation but I read in the other thread that Guylain has had many requests to do the
  3. Hi As suggested in another thread, I'll make this a new feature request here. Please consider the ability to sync the camera Time/Date to the PC Time/Date on connect, selectable in the settings page via a check box (for those who don't want or need it). My camera does not retain the time due to a bad capacitor if the battery is removed and is a real pain to reset the time and date every time. Even though BYEOS adds the time and date to the file name when saving the image to the PC, the file time/date stamp is whatever the camera time/date is. Thanks. Pete

    About Time

    Hi Guylain. Did this request to sync camera time get any further than this thread? I have a situation where my DSLR does not keep time at all when battery removed from camera body. A real pain! It would be great to have the check box option in settings to either sync Camera Time to PC (or PC to Camera) on initial connection. I've looked in the settings but cannot find anything so assume this has not been done yet. Cheers. Pete
  5. Ok, for anyone who is interested I found a solution to my need to get a fully remote and power efficient set up that allows me to continue to use BYEOS (my preferred platform, and without doubt, the best there is!). I'm running 'Virtual Here - remote USB' server on a Raspberry Pi 2 running the latest Raspbian Jessie image. This is installed in my Portable Power Station that comprises a 90Ah Deep Cycle battery and 6 fused 12V power outlets. One of the outlets powers a Hub that connects my Canon 60D, USB>Serial adaptor for my LX200GPS (used when at home), and a Neximage imaging WebCam, wh
  6. The 'Driver is part of the INDI Server, that is running on the Pi 2 (Ghoto2.lib that supports a whole range of cameras). Hence I can already connect to it an take images with similar control to that provided by BYEOS. If I understand it correctly, all BYEOS 'INDI client' would have to do is pass the required function to the remote 'INDI server' which will then do the heavy lifting as it were, and pass the image back to BYEOS. Many Clients can connect to the server for all sorts of functions, Scope control, Dome control etc etc. It looks like a great platform. I'm no software expe

    INDI Lib Client

    Hi I believe PixInsight has added INDI Client capabilities to it's suite of functions for camera control. http://indilib.org/ Is this something that has made it onto the BYEOS radar as a future feature? I have been experimenting with power efficient cable free remote operation of my imaging setup recently and have added a Raspberry Pi 2 to my mobile power unit which provides power to my mounts, camera and dew heaters etc. So far I've got my LX200gps fully connected and operating via INDI server running on the Pi 2 connected via WiFi back to my PC running KStars as an INDI clie
