About 4 years ago I had a nice small lmce install going at my place in Arizona. Since then I have had to relocate and ended up in living situations where I couldn't set up properly.
I am now living in Michigan and able to run cables and with the help of my roommate develop some neat little toys for home automation. I have been wracking my brain and body the last week trying to get a few components going. I have been through every wiki, searched all forum pages I could find and have put the effort into trying to write my own templates. If another user who is fond of challenges can simply point me in a few new directions I would be more than grateful. Without running down my entire log entries or build I will jump right to my biggest issues. With these resolved I will be happy saying the system is running, and I can devote more time to developing new add-ons.
Core/Hybrid: stable, using latest 8.10. ( Only issues with reps was some language packs )
This machine was built 4 years ago with a complete 'compatible parts' list.
Issue #1. Analog Camera ( composite outputs, one audio one video ) connected to WinTV-150. No matter how I try to device pipe or motion wrap this I can not get the feed from the /dev/video0 to generate on my orbiters or admin site. I did find one user post that said his composite port inputs worked when he told the media director wizard that it was Dish Network>Satellite Box>XXXX. Using this trick I was able to cat /dev/video0 > video0.mpeg and view my feed. I can also view the feed on the media director but not as a camera and not with motion detection.
- The ability to watch television is not important at all for my household. I have decided it will be easier to buy a DVB capture card for that purpose down the road and only use the WinTV-150 for camera feeds.
- I have several D-Link 930L motion IP cameras set up as Generic Motion IP camera under Motion as well. On the template for motion wrapper, it lists 1,8 for capture type ( card or USB) Is it possible to have two motion wrappers on my system? Has anyone found a way to force motion wrapper into taking both type of inputs?
My clonezilla disk is wearing thin with all the re-imaging I am doing after breaking my set-up experimenting!
