Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Hmmmmm....
Trying motionpi with my model B and noir camera.

Logged into the IP address and up pops the screen with the live picture showing as camera 1.

What I'm not getting are the setup menus.
It's just a blank space to the right of the camera preview box...
Am I doing something silly?
