Are you talking about 5 active connections for both POE power AND data? I believe Reolink uses 3 pairs of wires for a total of 6 out of 8 pins. I forget exactly but I remember that it was 2 pairs for one and 1 pair for the other, not sure if power or data. I was just commenting that pins 1,2,3, and 6 were used for POE, so I suppose that POE used 2 pairs and data uses 1 pair.It appears to be connected via 1,2,3 and 6.
Shouldn't there be at least 5 active connections for a camera? The diagram I found suggests pins 1,2,3 and 6 are for Rx / Tx and pin 5 is for power. Wonder if there's some issue with power transmission as someone noted above with the NVR? If 5 is missing on transmission but connected in continuity, that suggests a POE problem.
