    Any one use Free (unlicensed) Windows 10 w/ Blue Iris?

    As a side note, ALL those that used the "Permanently Activate your M$ products for free" mainly seen on youtube, that get you to run a few lines of code that connect to 'some' KMS servers... They went offline yesterday :)

    For those that need to run PoE that bit extra ;-)

    Not seen this before, may be of some use to peeps on here who need more than the 100m Mikrotik GPeR extending PoE cable runs

    Deconstruction of a dangerous misleading youtube review "Finding the BEST 4K Security Camera NVR Package (Reolink vs Amcrest vs Swann)"

    I've watched a few of his videos and some from the others mentioned, my feelings are that he has now identified himself as an 'influencer' and as such now believes his own rhetoric, I would imagine that he has obtained a cosy relationship with suppliers like Reolink and others, and the lure of...

    DS-7608NI-SE Not quite a brick

    Hmm Pale Moon works fine on the cameras but NOT on the NVR OK, there are a few posts on here about similar issues, mine was an issue with Windows 10 , but I do know that the IE Tab extension on chrome will allow me to see both the NVR and Cameras with full access.

    Browser for connecting to camera and view playback

    There are a few other posts on here that 'cover' similar issues, one for me was that Windows 10 had done something on an update that NOW rendered Pale Moon as not 100% I proved this with a new install and no updates and Pale Moon worked just fine, and as is with Windows, it also worked fine...

    Latest New NVR4XXX-4KS2_MultiLang_V4.001.0000003.1.R.200813

    Hi, can I just ask, what version of firmware were you on before 4.0? I am used to hikvision where you can see previous ones on the download page, but so far for me on dahua i can only see the 4.0 versions Cheers

    NVR systems - Dahua or Hikvision...or other?

    IMHO I found the Dahua interface to be a little retro and old fashioned The Hikvision early models was slightly better, but still ancient, the newer one only slightly better Blue Iris is a powerful PC based option, but has a steep learning curve. If you have the situation where 'others' may...

    Why does Blue Iris require administrator privileges (UAC prompt)?

    No point, i keep it in a folder called pr0n with a password of password1 so no chance they will ever guess that. :)

    Hikvision NVR not accessible in web browser

    NFI as to why they are/could be different, but in side note, I just dropped 2 of my cameras back 1 update to 'fix' the issue that they had with web browsers... Whilst on the surface this things look simple. the truth is way deeper than that, as I am learning (yeah yeah Alistair I know it's a...
