XRay Vision with USB and multiple XCam2 cameras
« on: March 11, 2007, 01:40:49 AM »

I have a single wireless XCam2 camera connected to wireless USB receiver VA11A and it runs fine with the XRay Vision software.

I now want to add a second wireless XCam2 camera but it's failing. Both XCam2 have different addresses (house/unit) but the XRay vision software is not able to pick both up. It keeps defaulting to just 1 (the new one). When I try to add the camera addresses in the "Camera" menu in XRay Vision the software freezes and I have to restart.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Should this multi-camera wireless USB setup work?

What PC interface are you using to send the camera on/off codes? CM17A or CM19A?
I maybe wrong but don't think it works with the CM11A or CM15A
Your setup should work! It has been many years since I played with Xray Vision But if i remember right you have to setup the interface before it will allow a second cam to be added. ;)

I don't think the interface is the problem. XRay Vision will work with the CM19A and probably the CM15A if you have installed something with a newer version of the X10 shared DLL -- that's not included in XRV. If you don't have a USB interface XRV will assume a CM17A, and there's no way for XRV to know if there's a CM17A attached or not.

I seem to recall there being a bug with adding a second camera at some point, and I don't remember when (or if, actually) it was fixed. We spent much more time focusing on Multiview and then Vanguard as multi-camera solutions that changing XRV wasn't a high priority.
