Has anyone else seen their IPC-HFW1831E bitrate acting strange with 2.800 firmware? Since updating my cameras to 2.800 firmware, I'm seeing bitrates twice, sometimes more, than what the camera is set at. (Set to 8Mb/s, but I see bitrates up to 16-20 Mb/s) I did not see this with 2.622 firmware. It doesn't matter if the camera is set to VBR or CBR. I made no other changes before or after, other than the firmware update. I did factory reset the camera after the update.

V2.622.0000000.23.R.191101 is latest firmware, maybe the downgrade that affected the system.

My cameras came with this version DH_IPC-HX2(1)XXX-Sag_EngSpnFrn_NP_V2.622.0000000.18.R.190109. No issues until I updated to this version DH_IPC-HX2(1)XXX-Sag_EngSpnFrn_NP_V2.800.0000000.2.R.190404. I did see DH_IPC-HX2(1)XXX-Sag_EngSpnFrn_PN_V2.622.0000000.23.R.191101 but was unable to install as it is considered a downgrade and 2.800 firmware doesn't allow downgrading, so it must consider the 191101 a downgrade.
