Re: OMG Snow!!

Does it really matter if it fills your disk? Just make sure that you keep the purge-when-full filter set to a level where in the time between runs, it won't overflow the disk. Also, storing your event video using h264 will ensure that you can record a LOT of data. For instance, my cameras record 2 G...

Re: View current recording?

There are two options I can see.
1) You can view the LIVE feed. Hint: Monitor --> Buffers --> Stream Replay Image Buffer to allow you to pause and rewind the live stream.
2) You can reduce the length of your segments. This will be in the MISC tab of the monitor configuration page.

Re: CPU Load spikes on montage

Hmm. That may not be unexpected. In your source/monitor configurations, under the STORAGE tab, do you have it set up to save JPEG's? If NOT, then it will have to generate those JPEG's on the fly in real time while in montage mode in addition to whatever processing it is already doing, and of course,...
