Astra Pro RGB camera streaming only in black and white

I have installed an Astra Pro on two computers and everything seems to be working… except that the RGB stream appears only in black and white! I have followed this tutorial for the installation of all necessary packages: Turtlepi #3: Getting RGB image to display in RViz using the Astra Pro Camera - personal notes (raw & unedited)

Does anyone have an idea as to why this could be happening?

The Astra Pro is not able to write directly to an RGB stream

  • if you are seeing black and white its most likely you are seeing the Infrared stream.
    To get RGB you need to access the USB Video output of the device not the device output streams.
