We are running an rpi 2 with latest raspbian and uv4l drivers. Got it wokring with pi cam, no luck with your HD1.
When running “pivideo -q all”, I get:
- picapture hd1 is ready
- no active video detected
- selected video source is: auto
- active video source is: component
- raspberry pi camera port is active
- frame skip is on
- video processor software version: 84C103
my uv4l config looks as following (tried all kinds of things):
- width = 640
- height = 480
- framerate = 30
This resolution is detected by my laptop (when set to mirror displays and used as composite input source for hd1).
uv4l log shows:
- starting lsb userspace camera driver
- warning driver raspicam not found
- dial raspicam v4l2 driver v1.9.48
- detected camera ov5647
- slected format 640×480, encoding mjpeg, jpeg video capture
- framerate 3- fps
- device detected!
- registering device node /dev/uv4l
- started LSB: userspace camera driver
If the “blue LED” is not on, then there is no supported video format being received. Please make sure that your video source is supplying a signal in a supported format: 480p, 720p, or 1080p. You do not describe the video source you are using, but it seems that it must not be supplying the correct video format.
I would also suggest that you begin by using raspivid to display the captured video, before moving on to uv4l or any unique software.
