Re: Zoneminder Not Capturing Events

That seemed to do the trick. I ran `chown -R www-data:www-data /var/cache/zoneminder/images/` then `chown -R www-data:www-data /var/cache/zoneminder/events/` and events seem to be sucessfully listing. Thanks!

Re: Zoneminder Not Capturing Events

Here is my /var/log/syslog. I couldn't find the option to enable logging in Zoneminder.

Re: Zoneminder Not Capturing Events

What other details do you need? I can tell you I'm using a pair of PV-143 cards. Where are the log files you want me to post?

Zoneminder Not Capturing Events

For some reason I cannot get Zoneminder to capture events. I have tried setting the function to either record or mocord but events still do not show up in the list. What else do I have to do to enable events?

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

I figured it out. I found the Debian Squeeze page on the wiki and it mentioned having to add /etc/udev/rules.d/90-zoneminder.rules with the following lines in it: # allow non-privileged users to access the /dev/video* files SUBSYSTEM!="video4linux", GOTO="zm_rules_end" SUBSYSTEM=="video4linux", MODE...

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

I changed the line and rebooted. In mplayer the green went away but the distortion is still there. ZoneMinder still shows nothing but that white square. xawtv still works. Why would xawtv work but not the other two programs?

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

Update: I just tried the camera in xawtv and it seems to work flawlessly. It's only mplayer and zoneminder where I have problems.

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

According to http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Bttv , I don't need the .conf at the end of the file. I tried moving it to /etc/modprobe.d/bttv and rebooted. No luck. I then did what you suggested. I took out one of the cards, turned of the computer and left it off for a little more than 5 minutes, then tri...

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

Sorry for the late reply. I've tried making your suggested changes in zoneminder, still no luck. Just a white square shows up. I then created an /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf file with "card=105". Still no changes in zoneminder nor mplayer. Is that the only line I need to put in bttv.conf? Am I even put...

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

I don't have a /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf or a /etc/modprobe.conf or a /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf. Sorry, I totally forgot to mention my system information. I'm running Debian Squeeze.

Re: Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

I never intentionally edited a bttv.conf file. Where can I find it? Here's what I've got in my source tab: Device path: /dev/video1 (I have two cards, I change this depending on which one I'm plugging into) Capture method: Video For Linux version 2 Device Channel: 0 Device Format: NTSC Capture Palet...

Weird green stripe using when using PV-143 cards

Hi I just bought a pair of PV-143 capture cards from the Bluecherry website. I am not able to get anything except a white box to show up in Zoneminder when I try to view the picture. I try to use mplayer to view the picture by running the following command: mplayer tv://0 device=/dev/video1 I get an...

/dev/video0 is missing

I got to the "Check that your Camera Works" part of the Documentation where I started running into problems. I tried running xawtv as suggested and got this error: brad@bigbrother:~$ xawtv This is xawtv-3.95.dfsg.1, running on Linux/x86_64 (2.6.32-5-amd64) v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such file or dir...
