What software are you running? HDMI is supported in v0.3.1-RC1. http://forum.krontech.ca/index.php?topic=434.0

I just saw that the Chronos store now has a SSD that is all ready to go:

Ordered one :)
You'll still need an eSATAp cable with any SSD.  I don't think it's included with the SSD.  Here's the one from our store: https://www.krontech.ca/store.html#!/eSATA-to-SATA-Cable/p/133345541/category=24447029

Awesome! Thank you! I had some serious head-on-keyboard time and never noticed that the x was missing.

Remember that the camera's video preview is extremely bright so you might be able to see it on the camera LCD but appear black on the monitor. Good thing to keep in mind for recording as well, might appear reasonably exposed on the LCD but way too dark when playing back on your computer.

Hey Nick,

We also ran into this issue a short while ago and we already have a fix for it in our development builds, the underlying problem is that the directories for DNG and TIFF recordings were created without execute permission, which prevents anyone from being able to browse the directories even though they may have read permission on the contents. To repair a directory that was saved with this bug, you can simply use the chmod tool to add the execute bit to the directory (eg: chmod +x directoryname) at which point you should be able to browse its contents.

If you would like to apply a slightly more permanent fix to your camera, you can grab the latest and greatest development builds from our chronos-updates repository and follow the README to build a release package that can be applied to your camera. This particular issue affects the /opt/camera/cam-pipeline program, so you can also apply the update by overwriting that particular file on your SD card with one downloaded from our github.

Note that files will still be created with the UID and GID of the root user, meaning that you will need root permissions to modify them once moving the disk to another PC for viewing, but all users should be able to browse and open the files.

Chronos User Discussion / HDMI support
« Last post by 1022mm on March 18, 2019, 01:42:01 PM »
Hello all, sorry for being the annoying newbie, but I have a question regarding HDMI.  Is it currently supported?  The manual says it's not active yet, but the latest firmware specs say it should be enabled now.   I tried two monitors - both see the camera (monitor input shows an active signal) but the screen is black for both live and playback.  Is there a setting I need to toggle?   I couldn't find anything myself.  Thank you!

I bought the Computar (kit) lens with the camera, but have found it to be quite soft at the wide end.   I'll check out some of the C-mounts to see if there is a better wide-angle option than my 10-22mm, which so far seems to work OK with sharpness over the whole image.

Hi,

since the Chronos has an esatap port and seems to be fastest when saving like this, finding a portable/compact case with esatap seems to be slightly more difficult..

You can see the differences between esata and esatap ports here:

https://i.stack.imgur.com/wITiZ.jpg
(esatap seems to have those 4 holes in the middle, which is most likely just a visual guide. More recent laptops sometimes have those, esatap is always a combined USB/esata port.)

I only found 3 external casings with esatap support doing a quick search and ONLY for 2.5" HDs, no M.2/NVME cases with esatap... ;(

I'll be ordering this one and will report back:

Hope that was somewhat helpful.
Martin
