Web camera

I have been given a HIKVISION C4061 web camera which I wish to connect to my Raspberry Pi system.

This camera has a TV cable output. How does one go about connecting it to said Raspberry?

squirrelmail blank lines and bodies

Within the last week Raspberry and apt decided to upgrade Squirrelmail on my Raspbian server. Where previous to this upgrade Squirrelmail worked fine now I find certain emails appear as a blank line in the Squirrelmail index and others will not display at all. This is not all the emails I receive ju...

audio direct to soundbar rather than through HDMI

I have my Raspberry Pi 3B+ sending audio and video to my TV via HDMI but would rather use the TV for video and connect my Raspberry Pi directly to my soundbar, not via the TV. I have a stereo cable to connect the Raspberry to the soundbar but cannot work out what configuration on the Raspberry needs...

Re: HDMI TV connection keeps disconnecting.

Further investigation has shown that this is related to screen blanking. As soon as screen blanking occurs so does audio stop. . If I activate the keyboard the screen and audio refresh so as I said previously the 3B+ runs fine just stops feeding HDMI. I have now set config_hdmi_boost=9 one step at a...

Re: Power supply

To get an idea of what a dog, big or small, can bite through give it an uncooked beef bone and see how long that lasts.
Armour plating the wires is not the solution but training the dog is.

Getting back to the dog. Your local petshop should have products you apply to stuff you don't want chewed.

Re: HDMI TV connection keeps disconnecting.

I'l reply in the same sequence as the questions. No message from my script. It just carries on running as though nothing went wrong. It is a 3B+ and I'm running it with the power supply recommended for the 3B+. Yes I can still SSH into my machine, which makes me believe that the problem may be with ...

HDMI TV connection keeps disconnecting.

Up until a few days ago I used a Raspberry Pi B2 connected via HDMI cable to my TV which in turn was connected to a sound bar to play my music. This worked fine for months but being the fiddler I am and no leaving well alone when the opportunity came to replace that Raspberry with a B+ and I did it....

Re: Explain this command

fbe You are quite correct in saying that that file only needs to be read.
Now I was about to do the Apache Directory setup but it would appear that you are saying that is not necessary and, if I understand correctly, all I need do is alter the permissions on the file to 755.
