FloodCam problems STILL!
« on: November 12, 2007, 07:08:41 PM »

I finally learned how to get my cameras to transmit video to my TV, then I hooked up the VCR and.....
I used my remote (the one that comes with teh system and works with the transciever) to learn the floodcam motion sensor the way the directions said to.  I unplugged the infrared sensor cable, pressed "play" on the commander until the light stayed on, then pressed the button on the remote that corresponds to the camera, then plugged the infrared sensor back in and pressed "stop" on the commander.

Now the test:
When the cameras are activated (either by their motions sensors or by the remote) the pictures appear on the TV.  With camera number 1, the recorder kicks on SOMETIMES, and sometimes it doesn't.  All times that I test it, I give it plenty of time to reset.  The picture appears on the TV, but it does not always record.  With camera #3, the recorder NEVER kicks on.   (I'm not even trying to get cam 2 to work right now because it has interferance and has to be moved.)

Anyways, any ideas on why the recorder kicks on with testing cam 1 sometimes and not others (even though I do exactly the same thing each test?)  And also why cam 3 doesn't record at all, even though it does transmit a picture? 
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
