I take it that that means the card is not being detected or something?

IDK. My first go with this. Anyone had any luck with this card?
I am looking at going with another card when I have the money.

Thanks

Going Capture method version 2 works.
PAL with channel 1.
Capture Palette is half work half don't.
Pixels it is at a horrid 320x240
So need to get that up more.

Viewing the stream off tablet shows 11-15FPS at night. Not tested day yet.

Playing in the settings on the web panel I have it at 20-24FPS MPEG.

Hope to be able to embed that on my web site.

Oh kickass!!!

768x576 works fine. It is 10FPS on average so 3x the size 2x slower but much better if you add it up.


The web page is not showing the MPEG, Only shows JPEG but is slow refreshing.

Fine on tablet via the 3rd party app.

You can get 50 fps with pico 2000 w single camera! add to insmod option gbuffers=32, and set V4L_CAPTURE_FIELDS to 7 in zm config panel. Anyway, if you add a second camera, framerate will drop to around 6 fps :(
