    Question on CPU

    I think this CPU will work just fine for my needs - but I wanted to ask as I'm putting together a custom DVR/Media PC. The media demands will be very very light, so I don't anticipate much CPU usage outside of recording video - for the most part. It may serve up to three DLNA stream *at most*...

    How does Blue Iris handle motion detection?

    I have a question regarding how Blue Iris handle motion detection. For example, I now use a 8ch NVR (N6200-8E) a cheap china disk based NVR.
