Unable to load control data for monitor

Post by apti » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:24 pm

I am getting this every 10 or 15 minutes for one of my cameras. It is not affecting anything. montage show camera fine. it records just fine. It is a cheap P.O.C. camera. trendnet tv-ip501w. This is a copy of some of the log.

2019-10-09 14:20:45 zmcontrol 9914 FAT Unable to load control data for monitor 5 zmcontrol.pl

This is not affecting anything other than flooding the log and it is annoying but actual function does not seem affected.

In the monitor configuration is Control->Controllable checked?

Is this camera PTZ capable? The control program zmcontrol.pl --id 5 is being called for camera monitor 5 and apparently can't find a PTZ commands file

it is not a controllable camera and I went to look and the controllable was checked. I unchecked it and will see how that does. I had not thought to check that. Thanks.
