Re: Incorrect Disk Usage %

Old post but similar problem: Disk usage in ZM shows 0%, df shows 87%, filter works OK and deletes old events keeping stored events as expected. This is observed on just one machine with RAID0 with 3 * 3TB HDD. Below is the output of some commands: [root@ruters ~]# df -kh Filesystem Size Used Avail ...

Re: How to set old camera

The old analogue cameras cost 25 EUR, new HIK Vision 1MB outdoor IP camera is sold locally for ~80 EUR. I will buy a couple from these. Last year installed 15 pcs at the company warehouse, work fine with ZM, proved for 12 months already. This year plan to replace 2 old surveilance systems at 2 other...

Re: How to set old camera

Got your point! The extra option "no_overlay=0" did not make any difference, I drop the idea to continue using the old hardware.
Will wait till -10C temperature outside adopts positive value to start stretching UTP cables for new IP cameras. . .

Case closed.

How to set old camera

Hi! I have been using 2 analogue cameras attached to PICO2000 on a Fedora17 system with ZM 1.25 showing B&W images. Today installed Fedora 23 and moved the PICO2000 board&cameras to it. ZM 1.28.1 installed from ZM repository with all dependancies (great relief!). But cameras show&record black or blu...

Re: 420 TV lines Cheap Sony CCD - which pal resolution

I just noticed that the images are B/W when recording/viewing with both "grey" or "GBR" settings. The board is PICO2000, the cameras are colour, but the images in both IE and Firefox are B/W. jpg files properties are: 704*576 pixels, 120 dpi, 24 bit depth, frame 1. Can this configuration give colour...

Re: 420 TV lines Cheap Sony CCD - which pal resolution

Thanks for the useful discussion. It saved me a lot of experimenting with resolution but not with "device format" and "capture palette". I have the cheapest possible IR cameras JK212 http://www.jmk.hk/en/productshow.aspx?id=339 and spent a lot of time to find out that just PAL Nc works, then palette...

Re: Motion detect (modect) causes Ubuntu 10.04 to freeze

Thanks for the advice. I have old mainboards with appropriate heatsink, silicon thermoconductive paste etc. I will manage it. It is a strange problem as the box is installed in a cool basement and the side covers are removed, so cooling should be more than normal. Probably it is some lame PCB design...

Re: Motion detect (modect) causes Ubuntu 10.04 to freeze

I think it is not a direct hardware problem: the same box had WinXP installed & DVR soft bundled with PICO2000 & simple internet sharing without any freezing. Then I experimented with FedoraCore6 for 2 months and Fedora14 for 1 months already (I need better routing, VPN to work and a testing ground ...

Re: Motion detect (modect) causes Ubuntu 10.04 to freeze

This is an old post about a different cause, but leading to tha same result with my box: it freezes randomly after 1 -24 hours. Freezing is total, no response at all even to CapsLock button press on the keyboard. Hardware restart/power down is the only way to restart the machine - it starts OK. The ...

Re: 16CH China/Ebay Conextant Fusion 878A WORKING!

Connected just one camera to a chip with CPF=1 and got >20 FPS! Connected 2 cameras to channels 0 and 2 (not adjacent channels like 0-1 or 1-2), decreased capture_per_frame to 2, activatet V4L and got nearly 4 FPS with stable image and half the CPU load. This evening made the same experiment with a ...

Re: 16CH China/Ebay Conextant Fusion 878A WORKING!

I am also surprised that the max I get is only < 1 FPS from each one of the 2 cameras, connected to a bttv . I guess that 5 extra unused captures (to separate the streams coming from 2 cameras per 4 channel multiplexor) between the 2 used captures makes total 12 captures/sec. While the bttv claims 3...
