Re: LAN via Ethernet Bridge (Win7)

you need to configure you win7 pc allow internet connection sharing, not sure if this will work for windows 7, as its for Vista, but it should be a good starting point.

Re: SecuriPi

Why not use a bit of common sense when leaving a Pi out in public until they become easily available?

Re: NetGear N150 usb dongle

First off, how are you connecting it to the Pi - directly or via a USB hub, and if the latter is it powered?

Re: Which webcam works best with debian?

I don't know which ones works 'best', but I've got a HP HD-2200 Webcam working with the latest Debian release, although Cheese doesn't recognise it, it works ok with Motion which is what I want. What resolution and frame rate are you able to get? Has anyone been able to do 1080p at 30fps or faster?...

Re: Parcel force epic fail!

In Helsinki: Part of the problem is that my building is locked, before you get to my actual front door, and there is no external doorbell/intercom, so the only way they can ask to be let in is by phoning me (which they rarely do). The postman has a key, the couriers don't. Blimey, so you can only g...

SD card holder broken

I've managed to snap off the RH side flange (when holding the Pi upside down) of the SD holder when removing a card, it came off with very little force. Inserting a card leaves one side proud of the connectors. I can temporarily resolve this by using a plastic clothes peg to hold the SD card in plac...

Re: Displaying Image from a Remote IP Webcam

I would start by looking at the motion package: http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion

This is capable of capturing a video stream from a webcam or network connected camera and serving it up to a browser.

I've got motion working with a USB webcan (HP 2200), and I can get gphoto2 to remotely fire the shutter on a camera (Canon EOS 60D) and I can get them to work together, but only to take one photo. It seems that the problem is that gphoto2 is not releasing control of the camera quickly enough before ...
