Re: help: no image displayed

No sorry, I gave up on that one a long time ago! The WinTV USB is now gathering dust in the loft. It's only 320 x 240 res. best case I think, so not worth investing too much time in. FYI I have tried other USB sources and not had much luck even though I'm on a much newer kernel now (3.04). Cheap eba...

Loss of video alarm

I don't believe ZM supports either loss of picture or loss of video alarms which would be handy. I have ZM interfaced to Misterhouse so an alarm can trigger a message or other event. "Loss of picture" is triggered when the picture goes black (e.g. bag over camera). "Loss of video" is triggered on lo...

FTP prune

I couldn't find a suitable script on the web, so I created a Perl script to prune a remote FTP archive to a given size, deleting oldest events or files first. It's linked on the wiki under 3rd party utilities, the project is hosted here http://sourceforge.net/projects/ftpprune/.

Memory leak in zmfilter.pl

Hi, I've recently been tracking memory leaks on my server and discovered that zmfilter.pl leaks about 200Meg / month. I have 8 background filters and they delete 200-300 events per day, mostly triggered nose to tail after midnight for an hour. ZM works perfectly otherwise. Has anyone else seen this?...

I don't think so - ZM, MySQL, and the whole machine was restarted several times while trying to get it going. ZM normally runs for many months without attention, the only time the server is normally restarted is to add or swap a hard disk...

Re: Modect won't stop after 1.24.2 upgrade

Seems I'm having similar issues.... OK, so I'll answer myself :D Here's what I found: I fixed the problem by creating a new monitor with the same parameters and video source, and disabling the old monitor. So it's something to do with the update (or lack of) for the monitor table in the database. I...

Modect won't stop after 1.24.2 upgrade

Seems I'm having similar issues. I upgraded this weekend from 1.23.2 to 1.24.2 after a couple of years working perfectly, and thought all was OK, aside from having to reset brightness and contrast. However whatever I do, I can't stop Modect recordings from running on after an alarm. The frame diags ...

I too am experiencing problems with Firefox 3.0.1. The worst thing - for me it creates flaky behaviour in ZM (1.23.1 running on SuSe 10.3) - everything seems to be working but no alarms are generated by the analysis daemon after you've looked at zm live streaming. Very frustrating! I've reverted to ...

Thanks, yes I noted that too. But the two Winfast cards also report V4L2 when they boot, and the WinTV reports supporting V4L and V4L2. So I'm a bit lost. I'm using Kernel 2.6.23.1-244 (Standard on SuSe 10.3 at the mo, I think). Perhaps the compatibility layer isn't working...?

WinTV USB Pro

Hi, Having had some success with a Winfast DTV 1000 capture card, I want to swap to a WinTV USB capture for a couple of reasons. The WinTV device works well with both xawtv and kdetv (using the S-video input). But I can't make it work with ZM at all, on any setting. I keep getting "ERR [Failed to se...

Suse 10.3, ZM 1.23.1 Can't connect to local MySQL server

Hi I've been struggling with this mysql error for a day or so, and tried searching the forums, but am now stuck. I've tried both the rpm for Suse 10.3 and building from source with the pre-requisites. Both behave the same. I get Feb 17 16:15:07 ha-server zmfix[17676]: ERR [Can't connect to server: C...
