The Pixel resolution they give is NTSC which is 320x240 or 640x480 interlaced. Look at the links. OK, Problem solved. I think it was a shared memory thing. I couldn't enter the size of my camera, without getting a black screen. I called Q-see and they told me the NTSC pixel resolution is as stated ...

I am still confused, how can I figure out what the pixel resolution is from the information they give. Is there no way? As I look at other cameras I see they all describe the pixels themselves the same way mine does. Is everyone left in that dark to guess at the resolution or is the information on t...

I had a similar problem. After a week of fighting with it I reinstalled the works from scratch. Fortunately, there was nothing else on my box, so not loss. It works great now.
