In my life I've played with computers did some troubleshooting, and added hardware to them. I've had many hobbies and learned a lot and did well at them. So I believe I can figure this new adventure out but reading these forums on BI is bogging my mind. I don't know the lingo for one thing, and normally I just load the software and off I go. Not so on BI. If you were like me. What was your experience? Did you catch on quickly after actually seeing the program and hands on? How long did it take to have BI set up pretty much how you want it? I want maybe 8 cams purchased over maybe 6 months, and watch it beside my TV on a smaller TV. I'll start with one camera. I may not hook BI to the internet if that's possible. Or do you wish you would've just bought an nvr? But I read those aren't a walk in the park either.
