Will someone please tell me how to get my pictures
running on the computer instead of the TV? All wehave
right now is BNC connectors and video connectors, and, of
course, DVR setup for TV.
Video capture device on you PC with the proper adapters/connectors.
Be aware that incoming video can consume huge amounts of hard drive space
unless it has been compressed by the sending device.
I think he means how to use his computer as a display monitor., right?
They sell VGA-to-video adapters, It converts the video from your
security equip to VGA signal for your computer monitor. they are about
65-70 dollars online.
Would a video-capture card, with TV capture (whatever), do it?
In other words everything is on the DVR-with-harddrive. 4 cams
can be broken down to 4 little squares, instead of one cam at
a time showing on the tv screen (so it sounds as if it can reduce
the picture size (resolution?)), and can i get all that onto the
computer with a TV etc. card? So i guess the question shouldhave
been: how do i get what is on the DVR to play on the computer
instead of the TV? I donot want to remove it all together from the
TV; just once in a while, because of the things you can do with
the computer as far as pictures go, and the visual is much better.
