Lightroom Classic 10.2 Tethered Capture unexpected error when previously quit tethering and starting again without closing Lightroom

Hello, I've been encountering this issue since the 10.2 update:

After quitting the tethered capture while still keeping Lighroom open and afterwards trying to start tethered capture again, upon clicking on 'Start tethered capture', I will immediately get this error:

unexpected error performing command: ?:0 attempt to index a nil value

Only restarting lightroom will let me start tethered capture again.

Hope this can be fixed soon!

Best,

Ikuma

I'm seeing the same thing except without any error message.  It's just impossible to restart tethered capture without relaunching LR.  At first I thought it was specific to a newly supported camera.  It isn't. It was reported in this thread... and confirmed a few times.

Aside from this I feel like tethered capture is generally more reliable in 10.2.  Hopefully they'll fix this annoyance soon.

@Bob_Smith does that problem occur for you when you switch the camera off and back on? Because that doesn't cause any issue for me, neither does disconnecting the tether cable as it seems to be the case for you.

So perhaps yours is a new camera issue as well as this...

I'm using an old 5DS R btw

It works fine as long as the tether capture bar (or "detecting camera") stays on the screen.  Once that tether capture bar is closed, you have to relaunch Lightroom.  I mainly use a 5DsR as well

@arpad_ikuma_csizmazia  Which camera are you using? Does it happen everytime? Is it possible for you to share a video of issue? 

Thanks,

I'm using a Canon EOS 5DS R tethered to Lightroom, but I could try with a 5D mk IV later.

With the 5DS R, it happens every time I close the tethered shooting bar and want to start it again

I will try to take a video later as well

I've recreteated the issue with the 5D mkIV as well, I am usually using an extension USB cable along with a shorter cable, I removed the extension and had the same error with both cameras.

I've taken a shaky smartphone video (actually two, one with each camera), how should I best send it?
