OK, I figured it out. It appears to me that when I installed BI5, while the cameras were brought over from v4, the profiles for each camera were unchecked by default. So I had to go into each camera settings that had a scheduled event and click on each scheduled event and choose one of two profiles I've set up (day and night). After I did that they all started behaving ok.Installed BI5 today and looks like everthing transferred over so far EXCEPT any cameras that had scheduled events set up.
I checked those camera and the scheduled events are still there but none of them fired off. Anyone have any ideas or is this something I should send up to Ken?
This might be something you need to send directly to support if you have the annual subscription. You can do this under the main settings screen.I am new to Blue Iris 5 but so far it is far superior to my previous system. I think I have discovered a bug in 188.8.131.52 64 bit. Prior to creating custom recording folders for each camera I could watch clips locally or remotely without issue. I recently created custom recording paths so each camera has its own folder and subfolders based on the date (&CAM\%Y.%m.%d\&CAM.%Y%m%d_%H%M%S%t) The BI server runs as a service on a VM instance of Windows 10. When I log in locally and run BI via the local session I can view the clips/alerts just fine. When I log in remotely to BI from an installation on my laptop and try to play a clip the BI on my laptop crashes (server instance running on the VM stays alive). If I go back to the default recording storage location without the folders everything works fine and I can play clips from my remote laptop BI.
This is for version 5 bugs!!I don't know if this has been addressed already but I noticed a bug today. V184.108.40.206 x64
If you have both a group and a camera with the same name then they conflict with each other.
In my case I had a camera called Pool (short name Pool) and a second called PoolNorth (short name PoolNorth). They, and a couple of other camereas, were part of a group 'Pool'. On the server it looked fine but on remote viewing PoolNorth would not display - instead Pool would display in both windows.
This is for version 5 bugs!!
I don't think its a bug either to quote help file;
'Both the full name and the short name must be unique among all cameras and camera group
names. The short name may not both begin and end with a number—it must begin or end
with a letter. This allows the software to parse the camera short name from a filename.'
