No Video, but Xawtv works (sort of), PV153PA capture card

Post by Secutor » Tue Jan 29, 2008 3:09 am

Hi,
I've installed Zoneminder from the BlueCherry Live CD but don't get video into Zoneminder. I'm using a PV153PA video capture card from bluecherry, manufactured by Security Eyes, but it probably is a Providea.

http://www.pastebin.org/17185 is where I have the detailed write-up. I would appreciate it if someone could offer me some helpful suggestions on his.

Thanks for reading.

It is a ProVideo. Security Eyes is there in house free software. As to the problem, I am thinking it is the chipset. Non-Intel chipsets are often problematical with some cards. You are using the ALiMAGIK chipset which seems to have vanished from the internet. So my bet is a timing issues is crashing the system at the hardware level. Sorry...
