Re: Filters Date/time

The only significant difference I see between mine and yours is that yours is set to "Date" and mine is set to "Date/Time". Mine works.

Re: apache not servig web pages

If Apache is serving pages on the lan, but not on the internet, you may have to look at your router settings and make sure you have port forwarding set up correctly.

Re: PC & capture card recommendations

Likewise here. I'm running a PV149 card with 4 cameras at 768x482. They are cameras with 16:9 aspect ratio so the weird resolution I'm using. They run at 30fps with very little load on the ZM server. The BT868 chip cards like my PV149 and my older PV143 may not be supported by the newer Linux kernel...

Re: "Add New Monitor" button disabled

The only suggestion I have it to make sure you are logged in as Admin, and that Admin has permissions for that function.

Thanks. I'll try those numbers. You probably saved me a lot of time finding them by myself.

Try admin/admin.

Re: How to set up IP cams remotely?

I'll take a stab at this, but you have to excuse my ignorance as I'm no networking expert. First of all, why all the routers? You need only router 1. The rest would simplify the system if replaced with cheap ethernet switches. My approach on this would be to replace routers 2-6 with switches. Then, ...

Re: Do I run my 10 cameras in series with ethernet cable?

No, ethernet never wires in series. You run a separate wire from each camera parallel to an ethernet switch.

Re: PCI-8604PW 4 Channel (4x 878A Chips)

The card appears to be a generic 878 card which should work fine with Ubuntu. I have an old card here that appears to be almost exactly the same. I ran this card for around 10 years with Zoneminder 1.2 and an early version of Ubuntu. It should work with no issues. I'm currently running a newer versi...
