DVR HDMI Output

Post by Maximo1970 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 3:06 pm

Not strictly ZoneMinder, but hoping someone else has had the same idea and managed to resolve it.

I have DVR with 8 Cameras attached, the network streams are then passed to ZoneMinder. All working great, needs more fine tuning but all good. I can view my cameras from the web console and the mobile app zmNinja. What I'd like to do is view my cameras on my TV, which is running Android TV. There is no app in the store. As the DVR has an HDMI output I was hoping there was an option to use that with some additional hardware. HDMI over IP isn't possible as I don't have the available network ports near the TV.

Does anyone have any approaches to resolve this or bright ideas that I can pursue?

Thanks,

Garry

You can setup a local webpage which just serves the streams direct. Navigate the browser to that URL.

Similar, but for ZMninja, and an Odroid:

Thanks, I'll take a look at the zmNinja option on the Odriod as the looks like the more usable option.
