If you have a PC in the living room, on constantly to record TV programs, why not make more use of it?
That’s what I thought, so I’m trying to set up Zoneminder, and the Mythtv plugin for it.
Install Zoneminder, Mythzoneminder
Put a symlink to the Zoneminder.conf file in the /etc/apache/modulesenabled directory:
sudo ln -s /etc/zm/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/zoneminder.conf
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload
allow apache access to video
sudo adduser www-data video
Next set up your webcam.
I am using a Logitech E3500, which is well supported in Linux, I hav e used it with Skype.
It requires the uvc cam driver, so used synaptic to install it.
Mealtime beckons, will continue tomorrow
