Zoneminder vs Hardware Recorders (They DO do full PAL/NTSC)

Some thoughts: We were pretty pleased with our ZoneMinder setup (will still are) but after seeing a Samsung DVR system in full operation we have some doubts... As we see it ZoneMinder can do anything as long as you have the correct hardware, no recorder system can beat that. But whatever you do the ...

It seems to be working better now, apparently there is some sort of order in which cards are identified and loaded. Presumably by the location in the PCI bus. I now have this: cat /etc/modprobe.d/options alias char-major-81 bttv options bttv card=2,2,134,134,134,134 options bttv tuner=-1,-1,-1,-1,-1...

If the cameras are analog you could split the signal and feed these into a PC with a capture card and running ZoneMinder.

If this is what you want at least...

Two really (really) old BT848 cards, from something like 1997 I think they where originally from an old make called Flyvideo. And a Ad-Link 4 chip BT878 card: http://www.adlinktech.com/PD/web/PD_detail.php?pid=247 Contents of /etc/modprobe.d/options: alias char-major-81 bttv options bttv card=77,134...

xlib_shm crash (segfault) [Solved]

We are using the xlib_shm script on our Zoneminder installation. It works great, but after some days sometimes xlib_shm crashes and the LCD shows the GDM login instead of the cameras. I found this in /var/log/messages: Jan 13 07:17:51 jupiter zma_m11[8309]: INF [ParkeerPlaats1: 2402527 - Creating ne...

I also use 384 x 288 to avoid interlacing. I based this on the max PAL resolution I could find, if found more than one. The max PAL I found is x2 the ones you and I use: 768 x 576 Be sure to reboot Zoneminder after changing resolutions! I did not know that at first. Also if you have more than one mo...

xlib_shm / xlib_raw viewer question

I installed xlib_shm on our server, it's great! At the moment I run it by clicking a shortcut I made in the XFCE window manager which runs this: sudo ./xlib_shm -m 1 -m 23 -m 11 -m 12 -k 0x7a6d0000 Apparently I need to be root to run it so I need to sudo it and enter the root password. I would like ...
