  1. Does anyone have problems with MODECT recording a few seconds of gray screen instead of actual motion? It looks almost like signal loss but happens very frequently. I am getting a lot of junk on my disk. I've searched the zone minder docs and forums and can't find a reference to this. I am using amcrest cams. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. BOOM. That was it. Below is now the output from the terminal. root@GrimLock:~# docker exec -it Zoneminder bash root@8a037a6782e7:/# crontab -l # Daytime camera operation 0 8 * * * /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl Daytime # Nighttime camera operation 0 20 * * * /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl Nighttime root@8a037a6782e7:/# Awesome as always dlandon
  3. Both commands work manually from the terminal. Below is from the log Aug 5 07:32:08 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3118]: INF [Command: Nightime] Aug 5 07:32:35 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3124]: INF [Command: Nighttime] Aug 5 07:32:35 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3124]: INF [Sanity checking States table...] Aug 5 07:32:35 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3124]: INF [Command: state] Aug 5 07:32:35 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3124]: INF [Updating DB: Nighttime] Aug 5 07:32:35 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3124]: INF [Marking Nighttime as Enabled] Aug 5 07:36:50 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3390]: INF [Command: Daytime] Aug 5 07:36:50 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3390]: INF [Sanity checking States table...] Aug 5 07:36:50 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3390]: INF [Command: state] Aug 5 07:36:50 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3390]: INF [Updating DB: Daytime] Aug 5 07:36:50 8a037a6782e7 zmpkg[3390]: INF [Marking Daytime as Enabled] But when I check for cron I get this result root@8a037a6782e7:/# crontab -l no crontab for root This is the contents of my 'cron' file in appdata/Zoneminnder/ # Daytime camera operation 0 8 * * * /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl Daytime # Nightime camera operation 0 20 * * * /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl Nighttime Could the problem be that I created that file with notepad on windows? just a guess.
  4. Understood. I have 2 camera states. One used for Daytime and one for Nighttime. They are called Daytime and Nightime. I can change these manually in Zoneminder or zmNinja. What I cannot do is automate the changing of these states. The first post shows how to do it using the commands i quoted above, but it does not seem to work for me. Any suggestions?

  5. It looks like I do have cron, but no luck scheduling state changes from Daytime to Nighttime. Has anyone else gotten this to work with this docker? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. Does this work? I have a single file called cron It contains: # Daytime camera operation 0 8 * * * /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl Daytime # Nightime camera operation 0 20 * * * /usr/bin/zmpkg.pl Nighttime I restarted the zoneminder docker When i run the commands ... docker exec -it Zoneminder bash crontab -l It returns no crontab for root i dont think these commands were added to crontab and zoneminder has not switched modes. Any recommendations? I am not even sure I have cron on my system. I have never used it for anything else.
  7. Thanks dlandon. Your efforts are much appreciated. Donation Sent!
  8. I also want to echo thanks for your work on this container. I am quite happy with my camera setup right now. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks. I'm chasing it there too. It works up to 3072*2044 without error. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. 4K doesnt work. Everything works fine until I set my new 4K camera (monitor 7) to 4K (3840x2160). It works fine at 2560x1440, but when I set it to 4K, errors start flying. See attached log. Any ideas on why? zm-log.html
  11. Good question. I've been an unraid users for many years and never used GUI mode. That said, I may just settle on a cheap NVR. It looks like the webpage doesnt refresh after a zoneminder reboot, which I schedule daily.
  12. This may be a dumb question, so forgive me. I am trying to figure out the easiest way to display my IP Cams on my TV. The IP Cams display on a browser. I would like to run the browser on my unraid machine and display it on my TV via an HDMI cable. Is there an easy way to do this? I currently have no monitor attached to the unraid machine and use IPMI if I need to access the console directly. I am trying to avoid buying a machine to display one web page.
  13. because the ipcams share only included disk9. i believe i created a conflict. include only disk9 for the share and not include disk9 in global settings.
  14. I intended disk9 to be a dedicated disk for ipcam jpgs. this is a lot of small files and i didnt want to have the array spinning all disks for these files. so i put it to only use disk9 and for the share to be one of the few that use the cache. i imagine i could have done this without using the global settings, but thats where i screwed up.
  15. Thanks Jonnie. That solved it!
