The topic: Big yay!

----------------------------------------------

The remote on the backyard cam once again is functional! The adapter got here, couldn't for the life of me figure out why it wouldn't work. The computer was looking for a driver, I thought the driver was with the camera software.

So, I call up my friend Tikky in Texas, who's also computer savvy (she builds websites for a living) and we pass ideas off on one another. I was hoping she might have some sort of ideas. She Googled for me, couldn’t find anymore than I had and I pulled the computer out and looked at the back, putting the USB connecter into a different place. 

And my eyes see the serial mouse port. 

Duh.

I disconnected the serial cable from the adapter and plugged it into the serial mouse port at the back of the computer.  It fit!  And the remote control works once again!

Amazingly, when I folded up the adapter, a little bitty disk falls out of the folds of the cardboard.  Has the word “Driver” printed on it.

Nice. 

But, the remote once again works.

Oh, and Tikky told me I might consider moving the “live video” button from the menu to under the camera listings.

Yeah, yeah, I’ll think about it. *lol*
