i ran into this issue once too where I somehow had managed to specify a zone larger than the image size and it perpetually recorded... so make sure all the "points" on the zones are inside the image border :p the other option is that its not perpetually recording and it makes random event sizes beca...

perhaps you may want to setup the zones better so you dont get so many false alarms... I only get alerted if someone is currently where they shouldn't be :p

I dont have time right now but in the next week or so Ill write a script that makes a h.264 video of the alarm frames only and uploads by FTP this would cut down the upload size drastically and Ill post the script here for you... Flash_'s idea would work too... it would cause only alarm frames to be...

do you have any trees etc marked out as "Inclusive" zones? cause if a "active" zone gets movement then the "Inclusive" zones can then detect movement and if it was a tree outside would make it record indefinitely

changing the post buffer shouldn't give you any errors at all as it is just saving for longer and not putting additional stuff into memory... with a 5s buffer you will get lots of small events... try changing just the post buffer to 90 and see what happens

if you want it to detect even the smallest motion(about the size of a person arm moving) select the preset "Best, High Sensitivity" then change Min Alarmed Area : 1 Min Filtered Area : 1 Min Blob Area : 1 Min Blobs : 1 all the rest of defaults are good... this will give you the most reliable motion ...
