ACTi Video Server - Getting connected


I have recently purchased two single channel video servers to provide remote analogue cameras. I have played for hours trying to get motion to use them as a source without success. I am still investigation and looking at using FFmpeg directly to do some conversion if necessary. I have managed to stream to VLC using RTSP, the unit supports mjpeg and mpeg4.

Any advice or thoughts please?
