There are 11 different cards pointing to the page you have linked. Which one is it that you bought? Also have you specified the card number in the parameters of the module (in this case bttv) at kernel startup. Look thru bttv-card.c to find the card number for your particular card. It's always an id...

Skydiver, there should be no need to look for a special driver. Try passing combfilter=1 to the list of params at your bttv module startup. This is worth a try in fixing that problem but I'll outline what may be going on below. I think the effect is from the driver capturing frames in even field of ...

Hi,

There is no mention of you trying Firefox as your web browser interface. Try it as the whole using cambozola/java lark only applies to IE.

Good luck,

Jason, Glad it is going OK. Note that xawtv would view one channel at full frame rate and this is why there is smooth appearance there. What is the maximum fps setting for your channels in ZM as it should be capable of going above 4 fps with this card. Please post the output for one channel from you...

Hi all, Thanks for the advice all. I did try it out. I got it to work in the end but only at 360x288 image size. I could not get it to work at 512x384 (at the local and remote) which was my desired size of capture. The other thing I noticed is that the frame rate I set for the camera at the main ZM ...

Using another ZoneMinder box as the remote IP camera source

Hi, What parameters or other special things are there to look out for when setting a ZoneMinder system to use the stream output from another ZoneMinder box as a remote camera source? Which should I use, the zms or nph-zms streamer? I'm going to test version 1.22.0 in this configuration. Conor Downey

Jason, Excellent quality pictures of your card. Everything on there looks standard enough except for the Lattice chip which is It looks fairly standard so my suggestion of using card number of 102 is probably good - if you don't get any picture change the mexsel value as I suggested. I'd leave out t...

Victor, I am interested in this kind of solution too where the display is shown from the same box. There no proper existing interface for this so I am interested in developing one! The best point to start on this that I can see is to use DirectFB. Note that DirectFB does not use X and is a software ...

Hi Victor, I would suggest that H.263 is a bad choice for CCTV applications. See: http://www.axis.com/products/video/about_networkvideo/compression.htm for an explanation why. Since Zoneminder works with JPEG images to begin with, a MJPEG stream is going to be among the best options. Have you seen p...

Phil, Now that version 1.21.4 has been released (great new features, but yet to try) now would be a good time to add it to CVS at sourceforge. It could be put under top level directory with the name of zm say to allow other contributions such as James Windows viewer to also be stored in the CVS say....

Henke, Use the terrific capabilities already built into Zoneminder. It is possible for lower power processors to do the capture and analysis and then send out over the LAN to a central Zoneminder with the big processor and plenty of disk store. The idea you should have in mind is to use cheap analog...

New versions of ZoneMinder - CVS store somewhere?

Hi Philip, Cordel et al, I don't see a clear development process for ZoneMinder. Is there a CVS store for it somewhere in existance? I ask because it has been a while since the last version of zm and as a programmer having CVS would help me contribute to this excellent application. I'm on the Video4...

Boombari, You need to read the sticky post at the top of this section of the forum and apply that to give more detail to help the rest of us to debug your problem. We presume that you are working with a version 2.6 kernel where the bttv driver is built as a module. However if you did not issue a mod...

Looks like it uses four Conexant 878A chips without a multiplexor chip visible from the front view. Therefore could just use the four inputs of each chip to get the 16 inputs. This modprobe command should be able to get all 16 channels working as /dev/video to /dev/video3: modprobe bttv gbuffers=16 ...
