i was at 15 bits per pixel and 60mbs, i was recomended by david 2bits per pixel and 60mbs just a minute ago so im going to try that again

That would do it! The filesize calculation is based on the bits per pixel setting, but ultimately the resultant bitrate is clipped based on the 60mbps limit. In your case, setting it to 15bpp made the camera think the saved file would be about 20x the size it actually will be. Reducing the bpp setting should fix it.

My Chronos has locked up while testing to see if the issues with .3 have been solved.

I was had my camera plugged in on my desk and I was having it simply auto save the whole buffer at the default 1,000 FPS. Once I saw it had finished I would hit record and save the whole buffer after enough time had passed for it to fill.

I left the camera running overnight, recording a few more buffers worth of video as I got ready for work. I leave the camera running during the day on my desk, then come home and start recording more.

After one such save, the camera gives me a grey screen. I try to record, but it fails. I go into the settings and I cannot change the resolutions. I go out to the main screen and the camera gives the "Shutting down" message, but locks up on this screen until I hard power it down.

The card is 64gb and saved video until it was 29.8gb filled of 59.4gb (Don't know if this is relevant.)

Camera works fine after the hard reset.
We believe a memory leak may be causing this, investigating now. Does not appear to be present on V0.2.

Will keep everyone posted. For now, if you're using V0.2.5, don't leave the camera running all the time, make sure to turn it off each day.

Hi there,

I have camera number 4 and can't get the ethernet bridge on usb to work. The interface shows up on my computer but no dhcp offer on it and no arp reply from 192.168.12.1.

I saw cams # <50 may present a problem. I have updated to 0.2.5 from Jan 4.

Do I have to tweak something by hand on the software card ? Alternately, may I manually configure eth0 from that same card ?

Thanks in advance.
