Camera image problem

Post by mrd » Tue May 09, 2006 7:03 pm

I've loaded up the latest live CD and it all seems fine, but I can't get a reasonable image out of my camera (PictureTel PTZ-4N on an Osprey 210 Capture card). It works great under Knopix v3.7 with xwatv but I can't seem to get a decent image in either xwatv or zoneminder with the live CD version installed. I can only see a very faint image with yuyv or yuv422 as the palette and nothing with all others. I can't get any image with the xwatv installed from the Live CD.



Help if you can...

Thanks,
MRD
