Guys,

How can I induce firmware reload to Seek Thermal XR camera flash IC ?
I mean 1.3.0.0 version, built-in into apk.
Either Android way or Windows-way.

Hello everyone,

I have looked at the code for seek thermal compact, and everyone seemed to have written their code interfacing the iAP interface. I am wondering why this interface and not the other that is available?
https://github.com/sgstair/winusbdotnet

If you look at the lsusb that was posted here(in the link below) it says that theres another interface available. (the interface is called com.thermal.pir206)
https://github.com/zougloub/libseek

I am wondering this because i had to write c++ code to communicate with this camera and i also used winusb to do it. I decided to use iAP interface cause everyone else used it. I want to be able to run 2 seek thermal cameras in parallel.  I have done that using multi-threading however i realized that there seems to be some sort of race condition. When using winusb_readpipe function with two seek thermal cameras, the function sends the data to a unique winusb_interface_handle however the PipeID remains the same. So i think that two threads might be racing for this function. So i was thinking to communicate with the second camera run on the other interface because it has another pipeID. However when i do winusb_controltransfer/winusb_writepipe/winusb_readpipe using the second interface i will get windows errors like "Invalid access to memory location",A device attached to the system is not functioning" and "The parameter is incorrect". I am confused as to why?

Any help is appreciated thank you!

Edit:
I found this link on endpoints and pipes.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/usbcon/usb-endpoints-and-their-pipes
It makes me think that my conclusion on the problem is correct. As there are 2 devices hence 2 endpoints but only 1 pipe. So my 2 threaded readpipe functions are just racing for the pipe.

I'm not clear from your post whether you are actually getting data from both cameras.  Are you getting images from both cameras but erratically?  What do you observe that makes you think there is a race.  One pipe for two distinct devices seems crazy and makes me wonder if you got 2 handles to the same device (which does not make sense to me either but might be more likely than the one pipe for 2 devices).

I have run 3 Seeks simultaneously using 3 separate instances of my C/C++ code and did not notice any problems, but that is using libusb under Debian Linux and I have not tried running multiple cameras in separate threads of one program.  i also don't process many errors...
I am not opposed to exercise, unless it is an exercise in futility.

The inclusion of an additional menu. Now you can see the frame rate.

I tried that hti APK on my Android with my CompactPro but it was quite disappointing... The Seek Software is much more sophisticated and they also seem not to handle deadpixel substraction. I discovered
four dead pixels with their app which I've never seen on the seek app...

Would be interesting to know how it comes that they seem to use the same Software to Hardware communication as the seek devices... Maybe the are just selling rebranded Seek devices?

SEEK modules "C2 Starter Kit" https://detail.1688.com/offer/580307068706.html
it seems that
HT-101=SEEK COMPACT
HT-101=SEEK COMPACT PRO
HT-A1=SEEK SHOT
HT-A2=SEEK SHOT PRO
it's interesting that HT-101/A1 is 220*160 but seek is 206*156
HT-301=xinfrared T3S :)

Should probably be HT-201 = SEEK COMPACT PRO ;)

Anyone can advise if the pc cable for seek compact is available on amazon.com?
Or advise how to DIY a pc cable?
I only saw the YCS extension cable there.

There is even a holder with tripod mount for the Seek Compact.
