Reversing scan controls in iWitness
« on: November 07, 2006, 06:08:49 PM »

I mounted my VK77A Vanguard camera upside down and flipped both the horizontal and vertical image using the remote control, which worked fine, but when I setup iWitness, I found that the scan buttons in iWitness were still reversed. I was unable to find anywhere to tell iWitness to reverse the scan buttons, so I looked at the various profile files (they have an .ahx extension] I opened the profile file in "Notepad" and found that it is a xml-based configuration file and found a switch that looks like this: 
      <camera address="0" ModuleId="2000001" CamID="5000001" StreamID="14" Type="0" MountedUpsideDown="0"/>   

I changed MountedUpsideDown="0" to MountedUpsideDown="1", saved the file, closed AHP, restarted the computer, started AHP with the modified profile, and the scan controls now worked as expected.

There is considerable information in the *.ahx files which may be helpful in resolving various issues, so is there any reference  material regarding the makeup of these files?

Also, if anyone is using multiple cameras, I would appreciate it if I could get a copy of your .ahx file.
