DVR /PVR / CCTV on linux ,help ?


Hi
I want to make a DVR (digital video recorder) or CCTV setup hooking upto 16 cameras on a computer ,some of the cameras will be motion sensitive ie only record when it is trigered for a set period of time,and some will be recording in a continous loop ,for 2 months the last day gets written on
I have already seen such a system in a shop but it is running windows xp
I have seen some dvr cards on e bay where u get software free as well ,but that only runs in xp
I have googled around and found some sites for PVR setup
I dont think i need expensive tv cards
Any help in the right direction would be appreciated ,what kind of software ,hardware would i need

Thanx in advance

What you are looking for is zoneminder. I played briefly with it but to successfully use it you do need fairly expensive video capture cards. I used a cheap btv878 card with 4 ports but only having one processor chip it really struggled with the frame rates. The actual software package is really good.

Before investing in any of these make sure the drivers are available for Linux. Zoneminder lists the cards that are known to work.
