I started another thread with more specifics, but a basic answer could be answered here.  If I have a nono-X10 camera, does it have to be a USB?  If I have a 4-channel camera board and Windows recognizes the devices, can they then be assigned for use with iWatchOut?

Thanks!

No. iwatchout will only work with the X10 video adapter. However you may find the software that came with your videocard exceptable. Or another software that can be downloaded.

Ihave a computer running xp service pack 3 that I have had for many years for my camera system. I would like to be about to see those cameras with Iwatch mobile pro will it allow me to use the cameras that are connected to the pc through the existing pci cards or do they need the x10 usb adapters. 

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

thanks knightrider,

I figured that was the answer I was just hoping there was a work around.  Does anyone know of any program that will allow you to view cameras that are connected to pci cards on a xp machine that will allow you to view them on an android phone?

Thanks

You might want to take a look at Blue Iris.  You can setup a web server page and view them from a browser, which I'm sure your phone probably has.
