PiCapture raspberry pi 4 and piCapture Reply To: raspberry pi 4 and piCapture


I’m working on it right now actually. I received my HD1 last week and just got everything assembled last night. I’m able to communicate with the HD1 via pivideo and the pi is able to recognize it as a camera, but I can’t seem to get it to detect an active video input. Right now I’m using an HDMI splitter on my desktop computer’s video output. I’m going to test it on another output soon.

If anyone has any input on how far they’ve gotten with the rpi4, I’d appreciate any information.

Here is some output from my pi (8gb model). I’m running “Raspberry Pi OS (32-bit) with desktop and recommended software” and have enabled the camera and i2c interfaces.
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ vcgencmd get_camera
supported=1 detected=1
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ pivideo –port i2c1 –query all
PiCapture HD1 is ready
No active video detected
Selected video source is: hdmi
Active video source is: hdmi
Raspberry Pi camera port is not active
Video processor firmware version: 07

In what I’ve read so far, I think the camera port shouldn’t activate until I’ve run the raspivid command. And I can’t run the raspivid command until the HD1 detects an active video input (indicated by the blue LED).
