Post Bleucherry PV-149: What driver to use.
Hi out there,

I have bought a bluecherry PV149 and my camera's came in today. So I wanted to install it but the life-cd supplied by them is not working.

Now I won't want to use the life cd anyhow as I want to add the camera and frame capture card PV149 in my FC6 system.

But I do not know howto continue?

Does anyone has a hint for me?

Thanks,

Paul

Just follow the "How to" for FC6 from the wiki site. You will need to add to the modprobe.conf file:

modprobe bttv gbuffers=16 card=98,98,98,98

That should get you up and running.

I changed /etc/modprobe.conf (see last line) to:

alias eth0 e100
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
# options pwc index=1
remove pwc { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 1 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove pwc
modprobe bttv gbuffers=16 card=98,98,98,98

However no result.

Cheers,

Paul

No, he means the ZoneMinder Wiki. See this:

The PV-149 doesn't require any modprobe settings or anything similar by default. The card is automagically found by the latest kernels. As I mentioned in the ticket request you opened you might have a defective card. If that's the case you can return it for a exchange

Thanks

Post One step further, but not there yet.
No it is not the HW. I have XAWTV working now. The solution was found under:
http://www.mail-archive.com/mjpeg-users ... 07044.html

It seems to be a FC6 issue. You have to find the framebuffer address under /dev/log/Xorg.0.log. Do a search for framebuffer and you will find the address.

The address is 0xF000 0000. One can set it n XAWTV with the command:
v4l-conf -a 0xF0000000.

Now the question is how to do this adaptation for ZoneMinder?

Cheers,

Paul

I'm having a problem with a PV-149 on the 1.21.3 LiveCD version of ZM. It worked fine with one camera attached until I hooked up a second to the cable/port on the capture card labeled #2 and now when I try to switch the source from one camera to the other for testing, any image it shows does a very fast switching back and forth from one source to the other. I've tried multiple source settings:
Device Numbers 0-4
Device Channels 0-4

No combinations seem to help and one thing to note is that TvTime seems to show each camera fine.

Thanks,

Post Switched to Suse.
The liveCD coming with the card is not working at all.
The drive keeps spinning in an endless loop.

I have abandoned FC6.

I switched to Suse 10.2.

It is certainly a lot more work to get it configured. Even harder to do and twice as long as for FC6. I have XAWTV working without a problem and I think I am very close to getting Zoneminder up and running but not sure though.

Cheers,

Paul

Post It works under Suse 10.2
Guys,

I got it working under Suse 10.2, only thing is that if I am logging in remotely my main window starts up. But then if I click anything I get 403 errors
Access forbidden, for unknown reason.

Still something to digg into I guess.

Cheers,

Paul

I've switched to the LiveCD that BlueCherry makes and it's working for me...

Just an update...

It must be a driver issue or possibly a kernel issue since the only LiveCD I was able to get working before had an older kernel on it.
