It works fine at 320x240 like mentioned in my previous post, however when setting the channels to 640x480 the video plays with lines going through it and it periodically jumps between the picture periodically jumps between different camera views. What could be the problem on this one?

Thanks bristoldave, unchecking V4L_MULTI_BUFFER did the trick. I also changed CAPTURES_PER_FRAME from 1 to 2 for the heck of it. I have 16 cameras going at 320x240 set at max 5 fps. They are actually showing up as 2.5-3.5 fps though.

Thanks,
I think that helped, but not 100% sure yet until I mess around some more.
Should I also change CAPTURES_PER_FRAME from 1 to 2?
What does that do anyway?

First I added the first monitor as /dev/video0 channel 0 and the video displayed as a blue screen. Then I added ...

what is the difference as far as FPS between these two cards: http://store.bluecherry.net/Provideo_PV_155_p/pv-155.htm and http://store.bluecherry.net/Provideo_PV_183_16_p/pv-183_16.htm There is one review on the PV 183 that says you can only reach 5 fps per cam with 16 cameras. Shouldn't you be abl...

2 harddrives?

How can zoneminder be configured to work with 2 harddrives? I tried enabling raid on my mobo and archlinux just recognized it as 2 seperate harddrives. Is there anyway around this?

Does it make a difference of how top notch the ram and cpu are. Those barebone kits seem a bit too powerful for a video server no? My only concern is that they will freeze up when running 24/7 all year long. Then again, maybe I just was unlucky with my hardware in the past.

awesome thanks for helpful tips. You are motivating me to build my own computer. what motherboard/cpu/memory rig would you recommend I buy? I built a computer with a geovision card, and the computer would randomly freeze up and I don't even know why. I think I put a too much of a powerful intel dual...

I am a bit confused. why do I only get 3fps? That is very low. How can I get 32 cameras at something decent like 15+ fps?
