11.04a Please reboot the WR cams
Message sent to Ken. Please note that rebooting the cams doesn't usually help with pixelating - but can help when the controls are sticking.

Message sent to Ken. I'll try giving him a call if I don't hear back shortly - but it is a holiday, and he may have family visiting.

8:31pm...........Had a terrible time with the cam controls tonight at Delta2. Pushing buttons but no response........then cams would suddenly react and wouldn't stop until completely zoomed in or overshooting the target. Both the E and W zoomer cams went black one time each, not at the same time. Both came back a moment later. Spinning circles on the embedded cams. The freezing and sticking on the zoomer cams is making for very tough zooming.

1:52pm......Still continuing to have great difficulty with the Delta2 zoomer cams. Cams won't move, delayed response, overshooting. Cams freezing and sticking, lots of sputtering on the sound. Lots of spinning circles on the rollback. I don't know if the other zoomers are having this issue to.............but I sure am, maybe its me. :dunno:

At times the cams seem to be working then suddenly we go into a few minutes of problems.

I just posted in the Delta Zoomer work area - cam controls are working fine for me right now, but both Delta embedded cams are frozen. I've sent a text to Ken.

French Creek embedded has been frozen since morning - I think we're too busy with chicks, hatches and potential eggs to focus on watching eagles gather to fish.

4:12 pm from the west embedded cam at Delta, the cam was pixelating. Not always but some. I didn't notice it on the east embedded cam.

Thanks, Sandy - I'll let Ken know. It often seems that happens when the internet at the site isn't fast enough or doesn't have enough bandwidth to handle everything that's happening. They do have a high speed connection there that should handle full high resolution plus zooming - but if you were zooming while someone at the house was downloading a movie or doing a Skype or Zoom call, maybe it would be briefly overloaded.

11:10am........I know it could be my problem here, but I don't really think it is. Just on the zoomer cams at Delta2. So much trouble again and it seems to come and go. Freezing, sticking, overshooting the target as one presses the buttons again when the cam doesn't move. There have been spinning circles on the embedded cams. And the rollback has so may spinning circles on it we cannot find anything so cannot use it. I am not the only zoomer whose had issues lately here.

I don't understand why it was fine yesterday, mostly......today is horrid again. And up until a few weeks ago it was fine. Too frustrating. Sorry, just had to vent.

My guess, Jean, is that there is something at the site that is affecting the internet. It may be weather related - or something they're doing in the area is affecting the signal or - who knows. We have had weather-related issues, but Ken spent quite a bit of time making things waterproof out there, so that shouldn't be it. I just tried to log in when there was a switch, and couldn't get the cam up in time to see the eggs.

Thanks Judy.......today was generally better but had a couple of small blips. It just doesn't make sense to me that things would suddenly change on my end here as nothing has happened to make that occur. There is however a lot of construction and tearing down going on in Delta right now and that could affect things although it hadn't occurred to me until you said that. We've even had someone take down the distant evergreen trees where our eagles often used to perch. Not good what is happening in this area at all, so I'm told.

By the way.......looks like we do have a pip.

8:12pm.......I hesitate to post this. But here it is. Cams tonight awful at Delta2. Same complaints as before. Freezing/sticking very badly, controls that will not respond, cams going black for a second then coming back on..............Here are 2 an examples of the cams constantly freezing up on me. You can see the time difference on each.

I apologize if this is my own computer issue but I see others are having trouble with freezing cams lately too so thought it was worth a mention.

Thanks, I've sent Ken a message about that, and also French Creek, which is frozen. And I restarted the stream at Harrison Mills which also had a black screen. (And I saw the tiny chick at Delta :love: )

I'm streaming Delta 2 West until Ken is available - my internet connection is not as powerful as his, so the signal may break up at times.

Ken now has both Delta embedded cams streaming - so both are back to full 1080p high res. :)

And welcome to chick #2 at Delta!

Are you sure it's the cams and not the streams that need a reboot? It helps if you can describe what the problem is - if the embedded cam signal is breaking up, that's more likely a stream issue. I need to do something now - will be back shortly and will send a message to Ken then.

10:08 am
Message sent to Ken.

I'm going to be out for a couple of hours.
