I'm so frustrated. I guess I had hoped for a super easy installation (said 15 minutes, but not if you want to watch over the Internet). I am relatively computer savvy, but not when it comes to foreign hardware like this. I was sent so many little pieces and no single map to connect them all. And I have one piece that isn't connected and don't know what to do with it.

So, the camera (VK74A) is plugged in and working only as far as I can push the remote and it will turn.
I've also plugged in a USB analog to digital video converter (VA12A) into my computer, and I've connected that to a wireless audio/video receiver.
I downloaded Vanguard software and it seems to be running, but there is no actual picture...it's just black (which actually seemed an improvement)
I have a USB Wireless Transceiver (CM19A) that I have no idea what to do with or what it will achieve for me. The instructions say to download the appropriate software (but doesn't tell me what it is) and says not to plug it in until I've downloaded the mysterious software.

I just wanted a camera that I could view easily while I am at work. Can anyone help in very simple language???

There is some added data in the wiki. Here is the link. It may give you some added information on the setup.

Maybe some helpful things here also.

Yes the Ninja Pan and Tilt base is controlled directly by the RF from the remote.
Maybe the CM19A is used to send an RF signal to the Ninja Base when controlled remotely.

In a multiple camera setup.
Only one can be on at a time. They are controlled by an X10  power line signal.
Same House Code and groups of four Unit Codes. 1-4,5-8,9-12 and 13-16. Turn any one in the group On the other three go Off.
