I figured I'd give a bit more insight into my problem in the hopes someone has experienced something similar, since I am still at a loss. The frames are saved one by one to a folder and streamed over the network from that folder using MJPG-streamer. I am experiencing an issue in which, when I step outside of a short distance from the Persee, the image freezes, and when I step back in, it comes back to life on one Persee...funnily enough, the other seems to work fine. I have two more questions regarding this:
1) Are there Astra Pro and Astra versions of the Persee? I don't think so, but it would explain some of the behavior.
2) Is there an easy way to image and flash a Persee so I could grab the image and state from the working unit and make an identical copy on the unit in question, to rule out hardware?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
