1.0. GV650, 750, 800, 900, 1000 cards, if installed onto motherboards with VIA chipsets, will generate unstable clocking. These models use the "Hint" chip set for PCI bus control, and this Intel Hint chip set conflicts with VIA chip set. Therefore, please avoid using motherboards with VIA chipsets. Intel chipsets, SIS, and lots of other brand names are good. GV250 or GV600 do not have HINT chip sets, therefore, they are OK with VIA chip set mother boards.
DRAM is another factor that affects the performance of the card. We suggest using SDRAM, if not, then use DDR RAM or RAMBUS RAM.
We recommend any AGP video cards that supports DirectX 9.0 and above. The Intel 845G/845GL has on board VGA function that cannot support overlay display mode. If you plan to install our GV-DSP card (Real-time display card), or to use the full screen video mode (display videos from cameras only) on the Intel 845G chipset motherboard, then you can't see the image on screen. You can get around to this by installing an Direct X version 9.0 and above VGA card on the AGP slot.
As for CPU, you can use Intel, AMD, Celeron, etc.
1.1. Please find and delete the following files from your Hard Disk prior to installing the new hardware:
1.2. This problem comes up if the installed software drivers were wrong or the motherboard not compatible.
1.3. With the September 2002 update to Windows XP (known as Service Pack 1), Microsoft is no longer distributing any version of the Indeo codecs with its operating system. This only affects users with new PCs that are shipping with Windows XP Service Pack 1, or clean installs of Windows XP SP1 on an older system. Installation upgrades of SP1 and the use of Windows Update does not remove existing Indeo codecs from your system.
However, if you select to save as MPEG 4, it would be OK.
Wavelet (Intel Indeo) CODEC:
1.4. When GV-Series system is running, the system will automatically detect video source functionality and availability. If there are no video source plugged to the card, then the system will send out a beeping warning sound.
To avoid these beeping sound you may go to camera Start/Close from "Camera / Audio Install", and disable image channel for the unused channels. Please refer to the manual for more detail.
1.5. If there are multiple disks you've selected to record the data, once the first drive free space becomes
less than 500MB, then the recording will jump to the next one, and the next one, and so on. If the second doesn't exist,
then the program will start to recycle in FIFO(First In First Out)sequence.
1.7. Every time you run the GV application it'll send a code to detect the network status if one of the network server is enable. If your GV-system is not connected to the network then it will show "Send ()Em Err code=10065" message. This message is already taken away in version 5.1.
capability on your browser is enabled. If you are not using either of the above listed
2.1. Please make sure the GeoVision camera input ports are "activated" and "show" is checked on the GeoVision software. Please make sure that the first two ports are connected with active video. Then, you can connect other ports at random. If the first port is not connected, you might not be able to view video from other ports at all. If the second port is not connected, it might take longer time to view videos from even numbered ports, i.e. ports 4,6,8,10, etc. However, once you are able to view the video on any ports, they will act "normal" from there onwards. Motion detect works immediate and fine.
Other things to check are:
2.2. If you disable the "Enable full screen mode" feature in the configuration manual, your video should be OK. In order to use the full screen mode (display videos from cameras only, no hot buttons), we recommend you choice of any AGP video cards that supports DirectX 8.0 and above.
If you are using on board video chip, they cannot support overlay display mode. You can get around to this by installing an DirectX version 9.0 and above VGA card on the AGP slot.
3.1. GeoVision supports the following PTZ cameras:
