Hard to say which one is correct. It could be even both - Windows accepts the value (doesn't report error) and the driver does some kind of black magic afterwards to get things actually working. I am getting different resolutions offered on Windows than on Linux and also the camera seems to run at a lower framerate if both cameras are streaming. I didn't try to measure it, but the stereo output looks like ~10fps or so. It could be a software issue as well, though. The documentation is also cautioning to plug the device ideally to a separate host and not to use the USB connectors on the front panel - they assume that those are not full-featured. So it could be indeed a marginal design. > It would be helpful if you could capture all USB control traffic from device > enumeration to video streaming using a USB analyser (a software one will do). > It would show what bandwidth the device requests, and what bandwidth the > Windows UVC driver selects. As I said above, I will try to get a sniffer working and will report back once that far.
