How do I add a second card?

Post by Fitch » Fri Sep 10, 2010 4:58 pm

I have had Zoneminder working (on and off) for about a year now with one capture card - 4 cameras which is a bt878 (card 77).

Great!

Now I have to put 4 more cameras in, and have bought a Provideo PV143A.

Thing is, I forgot how to do it?

so I have card=77,105 on bttv.conf and that's it.

Needless to say, it doesn't work 'cos I can't remember what else to do.

The original 4 cameras are fine and work well. I'm just missing something... (actually, I know I'm missing /dev/video1 for a start!)

brafferton@cameras:~$ dmesg | grep bttv
[ 16.507945] bttv: driver version 0.9.18 loaded

[ 16.508908] bttv0: PLL: 28636363 => 35468950 .. ok
brafferton@cameras:~$

I did modprobe bttv and restarted, but all thats happened is that zoneminder is always stopped when it reloads, and it takes an interminable time to actually respond to mouse commands.

Anybody willing to help?

Have you tried taking out your old card and put in you new card to test the new card is working? Try the new card first without any modprobe options. It should show up under dmesg even if you don't have the options set.

Once you verify the new card is working, put other other card back in and call dmesg to see if both cards are seen by the system. If you get to this point, call "modinfo bttv" and look at the aliases.

Then play with the mod probe options (which I assume your bttv.conf is defining). You might need to create aliases (or use the ones from modinfo) for each card and apply the card options to the individual aliases.

You need an entry for every bt878 chip you have, but you need to know which order it is detected by your system.

For example, I have a pico2000 card and a kodicom 8800 clone. The pico2000 is detected first on my machine (its video0) so its the first in the bttv options line.
My /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf looks like this:

Code: Select all

# BTTV Modules options

# For fast loading
options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1 

# The first bttv device is a pico2000 clone, the other 8 are a kodicom 8800 clone.
options bttv gbuffers=16 card=77,102,102,102,102,102,102,102,102 radio=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0 tuner=4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4 chroma_agc=1 combfilter=2 full_luma_range=1 coring=1 autoload=0

I was always able to get the card seen by dmesg (as shown above in message 1)

However just with the new card, dmesg | grep bttv came up with nothing, which is worrying as it is just out of the packet.

I then put the other card in and swapped them around, and got what I think is the same as above:
dmesg seems to say that it's found the provideo card, but because of bttv.conf it's going to use the other cards parameters, and the other card comes up on zoneminder fine...

confused.

Modinfo comes up with:

alias: pci:v0000109Ed00000350sv*sd*bc*sc*i*

Still no video1, no matter how many times I modprobe...

Swapping the cards around on the PCI slots has made Zoneminder come up faster though

To make sure your new card isn't faulty, I'd take out the old card and try to get things to work with your new card first.

Since dmesg seems to only detect one bttv card, it looks like your new card isn't working or you have an IRQ problem,

I'm beginning to agree. I think I'm being thrown by:
16.508626] bttv0: detected: Provideo PV143A [card=105], PCI subsystem ID is aa00:1430
so a bit of the card seems to work, but not all of it.

I've ordered another card - this time a pico 2000, which is card 77. It'll take a few days to arrive, and I'll let you know how I get on...

Hi Fitch,

If the Provideo card is not detected by your system, it may be defective.

Please upload the output of "lspci", "lspci -k" and "dmesg | grep -i pci". I am curious if the Provideo card is even detected by your system.

EDIT: Nevermind, seems like its irrelevant now :D

Looking below (as suggested), there's not much in the way of a provideo card.

So We'll wait for Postman Pat....

Only one bt878 chip was found by your system and there is no indication of errors in dmesg.
Seems like that card is defective.

I've been sent a Techwell 6805.
I believe this is a bugger to install - or have things changed?

No amount of sudo modprobes will give me a /dev/video1 with it...

Update:

Managed to find another BT878 4 channel card for a tenner!
Just have to wait a fortnight for it to arrive from Hong Kong...

New BT878 card arrived, plugged in, works a treat!... except for a niggly little problem:
Cameras 5, 6, & 7 come up on the montage, but camera 8 is just a blank window - unless I click on it, then the separate window comes up with the correct image. Wierd! :(
Could this be a memory problem?
