Motion Detected Video Monitoring Recording over PC/DVR
« on: February 09, 2005, 05:12:11 PM »

Ok, I'm interested in capturing motion
activated video (over wireless X10) to my
PC or DVR, not VCR (I don't even own on
anymore!). =)

My PC at a ATI All In Wonder 8500 DV, which
takes S-Video In for capture.

My DVR is a Scientific Atlanta 8300HD
(Digital Cable DVR + HD).

I am going to be reading the DVR manual,
but if anyone has done this with a DVR I
would love to know how. On the PC, I assume
as long as I can get the video signal in, I
can capture it. But what about using the
motion detecting recording feature. Is
there PC software that mimics a VCR (it
receives a record signal, records, then
stops on the stop signal)?

I guess the bottom line is I am going to
record on a digital device, either DVR or
PC, with 4 wireless X10's (2 front nd 2
back), activated by 2 motion sensors (one
front, one back). Since I'll be using 4
cams I hope to encapsulate this all into a
multiview with good resolution.

Any advice would be great to save me some
time.

Hello,

I am trying to connect the VCR commander with a DVR. Were you successful to do this, and how is it working?
 ???

I tried some motion detecting software with the wireless cameras but the problem was that it was too sensitive. Unless you have a perfect signal from your cams the software sees any static as motion.
