    Aargh!

    Wish i'd known about that a few months ago. We've just spent over £1k on a 9 camera licence for Milestone XProtect Basis+.

    SWINES. Nevermind.

    Re: Zoneminder - Linux CCTV Server

    Well I have just got some day/night cameras from ebay for £34.99 I already have a multi capture card, so I am going to set this up at home (school has just spent 15K on a system that is ok but not fantastic supplied by a local outfit) and see what it like.

    Any ideas on min spec for the linux box?

    Get capture cards that'll do onboard decoding/encoding and you can get away with a P3-600. If you don't then you'll need a at least a decent Athlon/P4.

    You'll need loads of ram and diskspace regardless. Computers and video don't mix well.

    Yeh I've just found that too... have you tried it yet it does seem to work I ain't got the hardware yet so I won't know until theat turns up. Also the live CD will do a complete instal it seems.

    There are some good user contribs too including a windows interface
