PV149 and IRQ challenges

Ok, so that ZoneMinder install I was hoping to do in the last post…yeah….not happening.

I’ve run into this before but I’ve decided it’s just not worth the trouble of trying to fix it. For some reason when you install the PV149 video capture card in older machines it likes to have problems with IRQs. I’ve tried this a couple of times and once before I got it to work after a lot of jockeying of IRQs in the bios and the OS. It sucks and it’s just not worth it.

The PV149 will be going in a slightly more modern and definitely more mainstream desktop motherboard. I hope I don’t have the same problem with that.

I’ve decided to repurpose the ML380 G2 for my new Trixbox. Should be enough horsepower and it’s already installed cleanly. Just need to make sure I can still apply the HPASM drivers so the fans will chill. Yar!
