Looks like a faulty camera, but its will be a real pain to try and replace.

Sometimes the motion detection works fine, but if I adjust it or some other totally unrelated parameter it just stops working.

this is based on the indicators on the motion detection page and on snapshots it sends to a lan location.

when its working properly a sensitivity of 90% and threshold of 7% produces good results.

when not working a sensitivity of 99% or 100% and threshold of 1% results in no detection at all.

I have had a sensitivity of 98% producing lots of random results, then reduced it to 97% and got nothing at all, then increased it back to 98% and got the random results again.

At present however I'm not getting anything even with sensitivity at 100% and a small detection box over a constantly changing part of the scene.

I have tried constant reboots, resets to factory defaults and even tried re-flashing the firmware.

any thoughts before I accept defeat.

thanks
Steve

Sounds bad. If you want something isolated from the software you are using, in case it's not the camera (well, the ftp/file thing might cinch 'camera bad'), grab this demo

http://castlekeeper.40th.com/eds.html

Set it up to use the ro_vivotek_7000_v2.txt in templates\rtsp. The MD driver is already selected.

Events detected are logged (these are from event data embedded in the video stream); you can jump from the event entry directly to the when the event happens in the video. Anyway, you can probably figure out the rest.

To give you a quick idea of the event log detail, check this out (it's 1100x1000)

http://castlekeeper.40th.com/gfx2/event_log_pbx_control_1.png

Here's today's log of my Vivotek IP7131, raw, as it is on disk. It's outside so lots of extra events today, with the rain. The pct values are ... the pct values, as in percent motion in the window (how accurate I can't really say, but it's probably got the jist of it). In case you are wondering. I've got three MD windows going on it.
