No more pictures

After 2 years of blissful operation which included an update, there was a power cut on Sunday and now there are no pictures any more. I am running v1.24.2 on an ubuntu box 10.04 LTS. I have 4 cameras connected and I know that it is recording quite happily: If I click on e.g. one of the "Zone" rows (...

Re: Export failed

It has now been 6 months since I posted the bug report with "the fix".
Nothing.
Nada.
Not a sausage.
What's going on?

Date cleaning

I clicked on the event filter, chose purge when full and added the following:
Date, less than, -180 days (roughly six months)
You might want to add :
Date, Less than, -14 days

New BT878 card arrived, plugged in, works a treat!... except for a niggly little problem:
Cameras 5, 6, & 7 come up on the montage, but camera 8 is just a blank window - unless I click on it, then the separate window comes up with the correct image. Wierd! :(
Could this be a memory problem?

Fantastic! Worked a treat.
I can now even export multiple events by ticking more than 1 box, and hey Presto!

Thanks a lot for that. I am now a happy bunny again (until the next problem) :lol:

I've been sent a Techwell 6805. I believe this is a bugger to install - or have things changed? No amount of sudo modprobes will give me a /dev/video1 with it... brafferton@cameras:~$ dmesg | grep -i pci [ 0.000000] Allocating PCI resources starting at 70000000 (gap: 70000000:8ec00000) [ 0.168304] A...

Looking below (as suggested), there's not much in the way of a provideo card. So We'll wait for Postman Pat.... brafferton@cameras:~$ lspci 00:00.0 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation MCP61 LPC Bridge (rev a1) 00:01.0 ISA bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP61 LPC Bridge (rev a2) 00:01.1 SMBus: nVidia Corporat...

I'm beginning to agree. I think I'm being thrown by: 16.508626] bttv0: detected: Provideo PV143A [card=105], PCI subsystem ID is aa00:1430 so a bit of the card seems to work, but not all of it. I've ordered another card - this time a pico 2000, which is card 77. It'll take a few days to arrive, and ...

I was always able to get the card seen by dmesg (as shown above in message 1) However just with the new card, dmesg | grep bttv came up with nothing, which is worrying as it is just out of the packet. I then put the other card in and swapped them around, and got what I think is the same as above: dm...

How do I add a second card?

I have had Zoneminder working (on and off) for about a year now with one capture card - 4 cameras which is a bt878 (card 77). Great! Now I have to put 4 more cameras in, and have bought a Provideo PV143A. Thing is, I forgot how to do it? so I have card=77,105 on bttv.conf and that's it. Needless to ...

:D Thanks for that.

It eventually worked as suggested (I also found a dodgy cable - which didn't help much)

Cameras come up on all the computers now. Cheers!

No network

I can either get localhost running with all 4 cameras working nicely, or I can have internet. I can't have both. My /etc/networks/interfaces is as follows: auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp This will give me zoneminder on the camera computer (local host) If I change it to: auto eth...
