Re: Fixed my zero w system lockups when using the camera

@QSKONE MotioneyeOS is an standalone OS so you can use all the normal terminal commands and files you find the normal Raspbian. Ask CCrisan at the motioneyeOS hub. I used to have the same issue with motioneye but switched to pikrellcam because it had the sound recording feature before I found this p...

Re: Is wifi power management really turned off by default in Stretch

Thanks for quick answer Dougie! I guess I am barking up the wrong tree with the wifi issue. I have one pi on an old router and another on my new mesh system - both have randomly froozen. I tried to disable powermanagement and still got a freeze for my trouble. SO, where to look next? I tried overvol...

Is wifi power management really turned off by default in Stretch

I am using the latest version of raspbian stretch and I have had several issues with the wifi connection. It seems the were solved when I turn off the wifi power management although I read several posts that this is supposed to be turned off by default in stretch (most from late 2017) and that iwcon...

Re: [Solved] rpi0w freezes if Wifi comes back

It's now 2019. Has the issue with the firmware been fixed? I am experiencing a similar issue with to Rpi0w. The both randomly freeze and I suspect an wifi issue. I have ruled out psu and cable issues, as well as bad sd cards. Having connection 49/50 and -61 dbm, not great but is it bad enough to fre...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Hi Bill, Thanks for a great program. However, I am still having problems with the Pi0w freezing regularly. Having ruled out Power and Sd-card problems I have now arrived at the wifi connection. Why it seems that on one router the setup works for weeks and with another router it crashes within anythi...

Re: Fixed my zero w system lockups when using the camera

Still running after 3 weeks! I added only the over_voltage I had issues with the pi freezing in another location but I narrowed that down to some wifi issues. I have an old router and for some reason using port 82 and pikrellcam made the pi freeze whenever i tried using the web interface. Solved by ...

Re: Fixed my zero w system lockups when using the camera

Ok, ran the pi ZeroW with pikrellcam as described above. Worked without interuption for 10 days.

I then removed the force_turbo=1 and used only over_voltage, and the pi has been running flawlessly for a week.

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Ok, so now I have managed to get the Pi stable at home. I am running this on Pi Zero W I used the overvoltage and force_turbo as described earlier and the pi would run for days (one of them is still running about a week later) The moment I moved it to the test area I started having issues. I suspect...

Re: Fixed my zero w system lockups when using the camera

Hi! AdrianM and Zuifer, did you continue to run your Pis with over_voltage and force_turbo without any problems? I had freezing issues with Pikrellcam and applied your suggestion, so far it has been running for 4 days without any problem. I am wondering if it really does run the cpu at overclocking ...

Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

Thanks xzanfr! Power issues was my first suspect but I have now tried so many different PSUs and cables. The Pi should not use more than around 500 mA at full speed with a camera and I have plugged in 2500 mA PSUs to it. Still, I will try an Anker cable as you suggested. I will check the Wifi but th...
