We’ve got several secure rooms, with video surveillance 24×7. A few years ago, we got a couple of cards based on BT878 chips, which we use with the motion package. I’ve posted here about hardware issues…

After a fair bit of testing, the cards just don’t seem to be compatible with Dell rackmount server firmware. They work fine… on older Penguins, which are Supermicro. It’s clearly not an o/s issue, it’s hardware –
having tried two Dells, and swapped cards between the old Penguin and the newer Dell, it’s the Dell m/b.

Does anyone have any suggestions, possibly for video capture cards, perhaps on newer chips? The two requirements are a) accept BNC connectors from the cameras, and b) must have *four* actual channels, not one multiplexed.

Thanks in advance, folks.
