camera does not initialise properly on first boot
« on: November 02, 2021, 03:42:37 PM »
Hi, most of the time when I load up RV Place the camera has some weird offset. A black band appears at the bottom. I believe this is related to the PC and wondering if it is a hardware or software issue. Maybe I installed the wrong camera driver? Has anyone experienced this issue?

I have attached an image showing the black band at the bottom. It does affect the position of placement.

May be the same issue I've observed, where you get fine horizontal stripe offsets, i.e. each alternate line has a fixed offset. I'm pretty sure this is to do with interlacing on the camera, the image grabber picking the wrong pair of fields to make a frame.
I've found that being consistent in the way you power up fixes it 100% - PC power on, then RV power on a few secs later.

Thanks, will try your sequence and see if that solves it.
