Monitors set v4l1 grey o rgb24 (depends on camera) and 320x240
other settings: kernel.shmall= 4096000 kernel.shmmax = 134217728

The monitor in video0 and video1 channel 1, 2 and 3 display image normally black or sometimes mixed black-white.
On the card there are 3 buttons that permit, as stamp on it, to change camera 1-4 5-8 9-12 13-16.

Hello!

I've got the same card and have the same problem; I don´t know how to do; I've searched in the web and in zoneminder, and all the solutions I found didn't work.
Last thing I found was here http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15758.
This page is where I bought the card, and, at the botton of it, there are some forums related to the product; there is one topic related to linux installation, it is talked about Ubuntu 8.04, but, may be, something could be usefull.
Unfortunately, I couldn't try these solutions, because I unconnected the cameras to rearrange them in their definitive position, and I will take about one or two weeks to rearm all the system.

This is the topic where I asked the same question http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16473 (if something could help you).

Cheer up, man!

Try creating /etc/modprobe.d/bttv-options.conf with this line in it:

options bttv card=77 tuner=4 radio=0 triton1=0 vsfx=0 autoload=0

Reduce captures per frame to 2 or 3.

hi, I didn't be able to resolve problem.
I purchase a bttv 8ch 8 chips from camsecure and now all it's working well.

I didn't read well all the zoneminder site so I lost time buying cards from unknown sellers on ebay. Don't do my mistakes, go directly to hw tested.
bye
