    Video recording "warning" signs

    I see places that have signs warning that there are cameras. Are these required by a law (I'm in King County, Washington) To me, I feel it is a warning to pull up your hoodie and cover your face.

    2 network cards to isolate NVR?

    Reading the WIKI for double NIC in a BI machine. Wouldn't this work the same with 2 NICs in my PC with the second one connected to the NVR? The purpose is to isolate the NVR from the internet.

    Lorex NVR issue

    My Lorex suddenly changed from recording all MD (green bar marked with yellow marks) on each camera view, to only show all camera's MD indications on cam view 1. I discovered this watching playback in sync view. Any idea how to get each camera to show their own MD? I have 7 cameras connected to it.

    Looking to make adjustments to my shutter speeds. I noticed my ambient lighting is enough that it never goes out of color mode. does this mean it doesn't go into "night" mode?

    Wow, what a diff size makes: 4MP Lorex vs 4MP Dahua (IPC-T5442T-ZE)

    Just replaced one of my cams with the Dahua. This is with no tweaking of settings. Recorded on a Lorex Ultra 4K NVR.
