  1. So I tested the voltage at the 4 way DC power splitter with a multimeter. Cameras connected: 0 cam: 12V 1 cam: 11.95V 2 cam: 11.90V 3 cam: 11.85V So it sounds like it's safe to use with less than 4 cameras plugged in, right? Thanks!
  2. Hi, I recently purchased a Q-See 4-camera system. The cameras say Power:DC 12V and the power adapter says Output:12V. Also included was a power splitter to hook up all 4 cameras to the single DC switching power supply. I was wondering if someone could explain why the manual says, "Warning! If you have a multi-camera package, the included power adapter is designed to provide enough voltage to operate multiple cameras. Connecting a single camera to the adapter can cause the optical chipset of that camera to burn out and become useless." If the adapter outputs 12V and the cameras are rated for 12V, how could the camera burn out? Am I missing something here? Does a switching power supply work differently? Thank you.
  3. Hey, thanks a lot for the documentation. I'll have to go through it. I'll see if I can get a rdb file over to you. I appreciate it!
  4. I thought I would just download that from somplace? I guess that's wrong. Should I not be using VB6? I'll use Apple's Bootcamp with Windows.
  5. Ah, I see now. sImage is not a specific GE path to image. WaveletReader2 will be getting the image for me. I need to store it. This is very interesting. I can't wait to play with this! Thank you for your time, Rory.
  6. I like the idea of having a PC save a snapshot to a path and then maybe building a OS X widget to grab that image at a specific time interval. I'll have to play around with that, as I do some programming but no VB6 and I'm hardly ever on a PC. This is probably a dumb question, but how do I find my sImage path? Thanks for your help.
  7. Hey, thanks a lot. Do you have any sample VB code that accesses this VB snapshot method?
  8. Thanks Rory. I see that there is GE Nav software, but I'm not sure it will work with my DVMre and how much it will cost. So you're not using GE's anymore? I believe I got my GE a few years ago after I read a lot of recommendations from you on this board. I love mine, although I still wish it worked with the Mac in some way. Mark
  9. Hi all, Is there any way to convert a GE WaveReader Wavelet to another format? How does one send footage to another party who only has a Macintosh? Can I burn this footage to a DVD or transfer it to another media? Many Thanks!
  10. Ok, I called EverFocus. All EDR models only do MP4, so they require Active X and a PC. We would need an EDSR. EDSR's use motion JPEG. However, they no longer make EDSR's in 16 channels. This might be useful to others, so I thought I'd post it.
  11. Hi all, I went with an EverFocus DVR purely for the Macintosh compatibility factor, but now it seems the EverFocus (1640) only wants Internet Explorer??? It kicks me out if I use anything but Internet Explorer on a PC. Is there any way around this? Thanks.
  12. Ahh, I see. No, I will be replacing, not expanding, but thanks for the tips!
  13. I don't think things will protrude through the tape. There are solder points that are sharp and will pierce the padded tape, but they won't make contact with the enclosure. I'm not sure what you mean by "contact points". Can you explain? Thanks
  14. This is probably a stupid question, but... when mounting a new Altronix power supply board to an existing enclosure, Altronix includes some padded back to back tape. The problem is, I don't see any free spot on the back of the power board to stick the tape. When using this tape, is it ok to stick it to welded areas on the back of the Altronix board? Thanks
  15. I've configured a DVMRe behind a NAT router. I use a dynamic ip service. I forward to port 8080 because my ISP blocks port 80. The local address of the DVMRe is When I try to access myhostname.someplace.com:8080. The browser redirects and in the address bar it shows, which is the local config, so the page never loads because I'm outside. Obviously. However, if I use myhostname.someplace.com:8080/wrcontrollite.ssi I have no problem connecting. It's not too big of a problem, but I'd like to have myhostname.someplace.com:8080 go right to the main DVR page without have to setup a URL cloak in the DNS. Am I missing something in the DVMRe settings? I am using Internet Explorer 7 and Wave Browser 1.6 Thank you.
