    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 :)

    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

    ismart ? Dahua nvr help if possible

    1st off, I have limited experience of the 'Dahua' side of things, but plenty on both BI and Hikvision, so I do know my way around them. I have encountered via a friend the following unit. ismart 4208 4k 8 port poe nvr 2017/02/24 Using what I now so far, it appears to be a...

    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...

    Hikvision NVR not accessible in web browser

    OK, I would suggest you install the hikvision batch configuration tool and use that to browse the nvr, I have found (c) alastairstevenson that i can see what my browsers could not see. From what you have replied, the issue appears to be with the NVR itself. not your network/modem/router/ports...

    Hikvision NVR not accessible in web browser

    OK, at what point do you get that message? I am assuming that you have opened the browser of choice Entered the IP that you have set for the NVR This has then brought up the actual logon screen for the NVR You enter the username and password THEN you get the error message?

    hikvision firefox "your browser is not supported"

    OK, now you have me worried, by custom are you 'suggesting' that the firmware I obtained from the genuine Hikvision Portal may have been modified by parties other than Hikvision? Because despite my moniker and background, it has not been modded by me. I got nothing from the url on any browser...

    iVMS-4200 pre-record... does it work?

    My 'understanding' is that it only works if you also have continuous set as well, then it has the ability to borrow the pre footage. in other words, when the unit is triggered it will just loop the previous footage before the event occurs
