    I am having a problem with an inexpensive IR video camera I bought on Ebay. The ObjectTracking program hangs on the tv.capture line when connected to the camera.

    I checked the Object tracking program with a DVD player and it works fine. After comparing the video signals from the two devices with an o-scope I found the timing is slightly different between the two devices.

    I would like to experiment and adjust the timing in the ObjectTracking program and see if I can make it work with the IR Camera. I assume the parameter I am looking for is in the “TVout/spec/video_properties.h” file? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, that is the file to experiment with. When you buy cheap things on ebay, they are not going to operate within spec, so you will often have problems. It’s hard to support these kinds of devices.


    Yes, I can see the flashing bars and that’s when data appears (well, I don’t if I can call this data…)
    Anyway, thanks for your help Michael. O0 good nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
