I'm with you Gary. -44 to plus 35 in 12 hours and not a single dropped frame. No enclosures; no pampering at all, just good ole robotic mass production, makes the 70's seem stoic. Now if I could only get the banks turbocharger to work on my snowblower...

The first thing to buy is a chunk of oak stairway handrail about 4' in length. Then don't skimp on hardware; the PV-149 from bluecherry allows for expansion and is supported by both the bluecherry live cd and any of Ross Melin's masterpieces (all are rock solid; I'm currently running the PCLinuxOS l...

Leon - Yes ZM does exactly what you want. I've experienced your issue with both 1.21.3 and 1.22.3 and in both cases it was a camera issue (jumpy or grainy artifact ridden picture) causing the continuous record. In both cases I initially blamed my abilities and in both cases a large hammer solved the...

It's good to ask questions!

I bought a similar card (not this one but just as cheap from the same locale and from ebay) which I couldn't make work with Linux or windows. I went to the supporting web site and downloaded the drivers supposed to work with both. I ended up with an open port 80 (which I couldn't close) and a limite...

What is the native resolution of the Axis camera that you are using (or which model of camera)? Which version of zoneminder and Linux? Axis cameras (some) are well discussed in these forums and generally reported to work under ZM. I can report that using Ross' 1.21.3 live cd set to motion detection ...

Several suggestions: first start with only one camera by disabling the others. Second, because this is a ip cam you should select the source type as remote (so there will be no option for /dev/video0 as a source; so I'm confused between your settings and what firefox is showing you). Third: I'm unfa...
