Dark pictures on WVC54GC and problems compiling

    Got a WVC54GC and I'm _very_ disappointed with the picture quality. Even with "normal" evening-lights indoors, the video is way to dark - unusable IMHO. I searched the linksys-forum and found other threads regarding this, but no answer or help, linksys seems to ignore this. Before bringing the cam back to the store, I'm willing to try fixing it myself - if this is possible at all. I downloaded the source code and found the exposure selection in the webpages source code. The cam-drivers are all binary, so no change to alter any settings (any ideas about that?), but anyone tried to alter the webpages?

    (opt_ion value="1">+ 1
    (opt_ion value="2">+ 2
    (opt_ion value="3">+ 3

    Adding a line like

    (opt_ion value="10">+ 10

    might help? It might worth a try?
    (Had to add some _ and ( because the forum software strips that code)

    Will also add a telnetd if possible, the source code is a bit confusing. rc starts inetd and telnet is configured, but the binary is missing? They use busybox-0.60.3, so it might be easy to fix this. Have to look at the makefiles to see why telnetd isn't working. root seems to have no password set, but it might be easy to compile with a given hash.


    Anyone ever compiled the source himself? Getting an error :blush: while making (tried on a new Ubuntu-VM):

    make[2]: Verlasse Verzeichnis
    '/source/WVC54GC_DE_GP_V1.21/wvc54gc_de_RoHS_GPL_v1.21/linux/arch/armnommu/nwfpe'
    sed: -e Ausdruck #1, Zeichen 86: unterminated address regex
    make[1]: *** [arch/armnommu/vmlinux.lds] Fehler 1
    make[1]: Verlasse Verzeichnis
    '/source/WVC54GC_DE_GP_V1.21/wvc54gc_de_RoHS_GPL_v1.21/linux'
    make: *** [linux] Fehler 2

    Any hints? Fixing sed-errors is nothing I really want to do.. :wacko:

    Changed to RH9 and it compiles now. But there seems to be a range check somewhere for those values? Anyway, it doesn't work this way. Anyone any other idea how to boost the picture? Still habe no idea about those binary drivers and stuff, too bad that Linksys did not include the souce code for them. :frown:
