Vanguard won’t scan ???
« on: March 20, 2008, 12:09:48 PM »

Recently installed Vanguard software (windows XP) 4 cameras.

The problem is... the when I select the scan button it only goes to the next camera and stops. I assume it should continually scan through each camera without stopping (loop). I tried all the options on the Scan tab making sure all the cameras are included into the scan list. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Had the same prblem, all I had to do was plug in an X10 "firecracker" module to the computer. Vanguard already has the drivers for it. Worked on the first try.

The firecracker is an RF transmitter. It sends commands to your cameras (pan, tilt, switch cameras) just like your remote does, but from your computer.

I was lucky I already had one from a previous order, and amazed that it's not even mentioned in the Vanguard Help file. The ONLY mention I saw was when I right clicked on the image and "firecracker" was in a drop-down menu.
