Missing something really basic

Post by hans109h » Sun Sep 30, 2012 8:37 am

I am using zoneminder with one camera hooked up though an BT878 capture card (Fusion-HD). If I reboot my server and start up zoneminder and try to view the monitor all that I get is a green screen with static at the very bottom.

My workaround for this is to run tvtime -d and point it to the video source, once I do this the monitor appears in zoneminder.

What is it that tvtime is starting that makes the capture card start up? I assume I need to add whatever it is as a boot job.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Try:
$ man v4lctl
Choose the correct parameters and put the command line to run at boot time.

The v4lctl command didn't have any effect on starting the capture card. Perhaps I should just load tvtime and boot and then kill it.
