Event Window paging and sorting bug fix

This is fulfilling a ZoneMinder version 1.23.2 bug fix request in this thread . There are issue with the paging and column sorting of the event window. If you try to do any paging or sorting operations in an event window on a certain time range (last 24 hours for example) the event window then stops...

Yes, you won't need a capture card if you use IP cameras. It looks like you want outdoor cameras. With a budget of $400 you will be looking at getting analog cameras and a capture card, as decent indoor IP cameras are well above $100 and outdoor IP cameras are really expensive. You'll want to look a...

I might have time to take a look at it this weekend. I suspect this bug might be related to a bug in the Timeline window I found and patched a little while ago ( http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11324 ). That bug, that first appeared in 1.23.2, was caused by zoneminder storing the re...

Yes, I'm have problems with the event pager too.

I look at events for the hour or day, change the page, and it's showing events for the whole month (or week, my system only stores up to 5-6 days).

The "View All" command in the Events window also has the same problem.

Looking at events in your ZM system, I see that your viewing events in Replay mode "All Events." Where it will play an event and when the event is over, it will say "Next event in 500secs" where it will count down the seconds until playing the next event. I don't understand the wording of your the q...

Looks like fast forward issue I'm having is related to the ZM_WEB_H_VIDEO_MAXFPS option in the bandwidth tabs. The problem with fast forward speeds came up again. Events from monitors that record at ~ 1.6 fps where not speeding up at all when I set it to fast forward to 50x. I remembered that I rece...

My guess is that you have a min pixel threshold that is too low in one of your zones in the monitor. Try raising the min pixel threshold little by little until the monitor doesn't go into a non-stopping alarm state.

1.23.2 Timeline with "in set" filter bug fix

I came across a bug in 1.23.2. To reproduce the bug: 1) Open the Event Filter window. 2) Setup a filter that uses the "in set" operator with a comma delimited list. (e.g. "Monitor Id" -- "in set" -- "1,2,3). 3) Press the 'Submit' button to bring up the Events window. 4) Click on the "Show Timeline" ...

Yes, I agree having the ability to change the sensitivity of motion detection would be a nice feature to have. In fact, I working on modding 1.23.1 to add this feature. I came up with the idea of "zone groups." Current in ZM each monitor has a set of zones. In my zone group idea, each monitor will h...
