    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    Shouldn't need to. And the MAC reachability query can actually be inconclusive on cameras securely behind wireless bridges and access points that assume the MAC of said device or cameras behind a DVR/NVR. But I actually did disabled it the last time it occurred and it hasn't happened again...

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    I'll hafta get back to it later. Another issue I've experienced with the more recent upgrades is cameras going offline due to IP addresses being arbitrarily changed in their BI configs. Started happening when MAC addresses got thrown into the mix and is clearly a Blue Iris issue since the camera...

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    For me it's in the way and serves no purpose. And in my case with the last three updates (including the current one), It shows the live view of the last cam selected from the main display, not the cam of the selected clip.

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    Well, one man's annoyance can certainly be another man's enhancement around here. I'll drop a note and see where it goes, though my instincts say go back to 5.4.7.11 until there's a mandatory reason to update. Thanks for the input. I'll report back with any response / explanation I may receive.

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    Does that do any good? Don't want to whine about something that's supposed to be an enhancement that somebody else complained about not having. LOL Just upgraded to 5.6.8.4. Same issue.

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    Current is 5.6.7.3. Was also an issue with the version just before it. The cam window is completely unrelated to the selected clip. Coincidentally, 5.4.7.11 is the last version that didn't give me any reason to upgrade. I've been upgrading ever since hoping the minor annoyances will eventually...

    Live Cam Frame Blocking Bottom of Clips Column

    After my second to last update a live frame now appears at the bottom of the clips column. It blocks about a third of the column. It is sized to the width of the column and is the last camera selected (for any reason) from the main frame. It doesn't go away until the clips viewer is closed. It...

    Max Throughput Spec for Amcrest AMDV8M8-HD DVR

    I understand and appreciate all that. I prefer real time observation for my particular purposes, which are very basic home surveillance requirements. I'm not a schmega-pixel guy and generally prefer more cameras than more pixels. The demand to read a license plate 100' away when a guy is running...

    Max Throughput Spec for Amcrest AMDV8M8-HD DVR

    There's still some wiggle room before deciding to send it back. I really have no need for the IP capability and was just dumping some load through it at what is an approximate 8 channel load of encoded 1080P 2MP AHD cameras..., depending of course how much processing power is derailed from...

    Max Throughput Spec for Amcrest AMDV8M8-HD DVR

    So this DVR fell on its ass just by adding two 4MP IP cameras to three 2MP AHD cameras at the DVR published bit and frame rates with a combination of H264 and H265 encoding respectively. Aside from possibly a defective unit (it is a factory refurb), what could I be doing wrong to arrive at...

    Max Throughput Spec for Amcrest AMDV8M8-HD DVR

    Thanks for the input. The available specs are probably even a stretch knowing how these lower end product descriptions are so incredibly skewed and misleading. Hell, I was just happy to find a DVR that even claims to do 8 channels of 1080p/30fps at all for a hundred bux. Thing is, I won't even...

    Max Throughput Spec for Amcrest AMDV8M8-HD DVR

    Trying to sort out the max payload options for the DVR above using a variety of 2MP analog cameras set up to their maximum capabilities and hoping to add at least a pair of IP 5s as well. Doesn't seem like it should be a problem, but... I see mention of an 80Mbps ceiling on some of the...

    IP Cameras not recording on DVR

    Did this also include the camera that you added which initially appeared to cause the problem?

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    It seems to have been implied that I'm just chasing my tail trying to solve a problem that isn't generally perceived as one, so no, I've only tried the few suggestions given here and intended to continue on as I said -- just keep dickin' with the situation to see if there's an obvious common...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    So after some experimenting and following the various suggestions, I can definitely say VLC is delivering very clean streams in all cases except intentionally introduced extremes. There is still a hint of key frame, but it's much more along the lines of barely noticeable vs. annoying. A/B...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    Cool. That worked as did the link in your post afterward. Indications would suggest either a Google or Bitdefender flag on the link in your post initially, but that's a whole other subject about unintended results of preventive security mechanisms. (Yawn.) A great general explanation of the...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    I don't think my missing clips was just a coincidence any more than my immediately noticing this issue after said upgrade. The lighting or camera encoding didn't change that fast. And the camera that initially caught my eye was an analog camera hanging off an Amcrest (Dahua) DVR and processed...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    Thanks for the input. The issue has been put on the back burner for the time being, though I've been keeping a pretty close eye on it. It's almost definitely key frame related and varies from camera to camera (in intensity) vs. being a blanket effect across all cameras as might be the case with...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    No major change with the exception of realizing I DID lose the most recent 10 days worth of clips upgrading the first time. Recovered after trying pretty much all the database tools and have no idea which one(s) were successful. Not a very impressive performance over the past coupla days for...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    So after almost 48hrs. since this began, I can definitely say it is a somewhat dynamic condition and is now barely discernable on some cameras including the one that was initially the most obvious and caught my attention originally. The others still exhibit the pulsing to what I would consider...

    Visible (and very annoying) Key Frame Pulses In All Streams After Recent Update...

    Everything was just fine and my higher frame rate live streams were as smooth as water flowing. The sub streams were even respectable in their own right -- until I updated to 5.6.5.9 yesterday. I'd been running nicely with 5.5.8.2 which I've remained with faithfully since my last attempted...

    Did I Break My Brand New Dahua Camera Just by Installing It?

    Yeah, TinyCam sees basic codec activity from the DVR channel with nothing even plugged in... That would sorta indicate the Dahua is just dead. But it did fire up and work ever so briefly...

    Did I Break My Brand New Dahua Camera Just by Installing It?

    As mentioned, it seems to be trying to spit something out, but that could also just be the channel of the DVR itself being recognized by TinyCam and not anything from the actual camera.

    Did I Break My Brand New Dahua Camera Just by Installing It?

    Did all that. It was installed in place of a working cam with all interior coax in good condition -- probably a 60' run at most. The cam it replaced is back up and working fine.

    Did I Break My Brand New Dahua Camera Just by Installing It?

    First, it's an HDCVI model A21CM0Z dome camera, not an IP camera. If there's a better thread for such relics, feel free to point me in that direction or have someone move the post. And it's not exactly a new model by any means (circa 2018), but "brand new" to me and new out of the box as an...

    Full HD 1080p DVR Recommendations -- Yes DVR, not NVR

    The DV8M8 arrived yesterday. Nice clean unit. Wonderful feature set. Cool and sensible interface. Tremendous functionality. Does what I want and then some. I'll probably even use it for a certain level of BI redundancy on a couple IP cams -- or at least see how it works for that. Overall I'm...

    Full HD 1080p DVR Recommendations -- Yes DVR, not NVR

    So I'm revisiting the subject and ordered the refurbed Amcrest. Then it dawned on me, maybe you wanted to sell yours? I actually got the ZOSI unit to talk to BI, but only at 7fps for1080p even though VLC was telling me it was streaming at 29. Got tired of scratching my head over it and bit the...

    Frame Rate Discrepancy Between VLC and BI

    I've been piddling around with one of the ZOSI cheapie "Lite" DVRs and finally found a RTSP url that actually works with the thing on 554 and it's now accessible by BI as well as VLC via RTSP. Live view out the VGA port is, well, live. Clean in. Clean out. The cam I'm messing with is an old...

    Full HD 1080p DVR Recommendations -- Yes DVR, not NVR

    Mine would be strictly TVI cams. Found a factory refurb of your unit for $114. I'm tempted, but at that point I'd probably be better off just ditching the old stuff and using the old coax as pull line for some CAT6. Thing is, I LIKE the 2MP 1080p format for certain things, mostly near field...
