Thanks for cross-checking.

Yes, this is from experimenting with our driver patch series to
do the setup in the camera driver. Both chips can configure polarities
but we now have only system defaults in the camera driver. Therefore,
it is commented out for the camera DT node.

The problem is that we never had all this working in DT mode so
our setup here might indeed be buggy.

On the other hand the polarity (HSYNC act. low and VSYNC act. high)
does match the signals seen by oscilloscope.

I will try asap if this makes a difference. There are only 4 combinations...

My expectation is that wrong polarity would only move the
active trigger point around so that I would expect an image
shifted left/right or up/down.

But I don't know enough details of the isp. If it is triggering
sync not by edge but by state and stopping capture for the wrong
state of the sync signal it might not receive enough lines or pixels
as it was initialized for and therefore it may simply wait for
more data instead of reporting "done with 1280x1024 pixels".

BR and thanks,
