Re: My ASI290 and ASI533 show up as 2 ASI290 cameras

Interesting - I have an ASI 533 and a 290MM (not the mini though) and they both appear fine in my versions of sharpcap - either 3.3.7146 - 64 bit and 32bit and 3.2.6411 64bit and 32 bit.

Driver (from device manager) - ZWO 3.16.0.0 dated 30/12/2020.

Regards
