For the Issue pixel & chip processing issue of the 4K-T , we have another newer firmware to be released very soon, has some good improvement based on the 20220923 version for the pics.
Right now can do the testing, anyone want to try just send me DM.
Does this new firmware address the issues of artifacts and pixilation with the 4K-T?

I have the 3.6mm version and regardless of what bitrate I set or any settings I change I have a lot of artifacting and pixilation around a moving object. I've matched @Wildcat_1 settings and it doesn't improve the issue. The artifacting and pixilation occurs in the live view from the camera GUI and also in Blue Iris. It gets worse if I enable WDR. I have two of the bullet Color 4K-X's and the image on those is far superior to the image on the Color 4K-T. I'm on the current firmware version 3.000.0000000.20.R Build Date:2022-09-26 and I've already done two factory defaults without any changes.

If the new firmware addresses those issue I'd like to try it out.

@EMPIRETECANDY sent me the new firmware, version V3.120.0000000.2.R, Build Date: 2022-10-21. The new firmware seems to have fixed the pixilation and artifcating issue I had with the previous firmware version. I'll keep an eye on it for the next day or so to verify the issue is resolved.
How is this new firmware working out for you?

I have two 2.8mm in black sitting on the counter waiting for me to find some time to play with.

Was hoping this firmware would be the one to use.

The new firmware is a huge improvement. I don't have the issue anymore where I had pixelation and artifacting around moving objects. I also set the time profile to switch between day/night and that appears to be working fine (I remember reading some people were having issues with it). With the old firmware, the camera was practically unusable. We this firmware, I'm ready to buy more of them lol.

My only complaint is if you enable WDR, it makes the picture look a little washed out and dull (My current setting is at 25). Maybe @Wildcat_1 might have some input on this?

How low can you drop the WDR? Most of us have found that as low as 4 can make a big difference.

PFB205W is the standard one, but some guys use PFB203W also work.
Would this be fine mounting to vinyl siding? I was just going to secure it right into the wood through the siding or is there better options?

Andy sent me a few weeks back a beta firmware update to try and after running it a few weeks and testing it, I think many of the video issues people experienced is much better mitigated.

The white spots in extremely low light is still there, but greatly reduced in the number. I think the video quality appears to be a little better as well.

Can't seem to get Blue Iris to run monitor/video or recording without stuttering.

Running System Version:3.120.0000000.2.RBuild Date:2022-10-21.

live view on IE looks great but when vieweing through Blue Iris it stutters like crazy. Task manager on the Blue Iris machine is not reaching max performance. CPU around 8%. Have direct to disk setup as well

Noticed in blue iris status can't get Key to 1.0.

Match FPS and iframe, so make them both 15 in main and substream.

Turn off HA globally and at the camera level in BI.

Try compression at just plain H264.

Are your cameras going thru a router or do you have them isolated from your internet via either dual NIC or VLANs?

Any idea how these cameras would perform if they came with IR built into them?

I believe they are not IR sensitive, or have an IR filter to improve the non-IR performance, so badly I would assume!

I believe he means if they added the ability for it to see infrared lol.

I suspect that if they document a ton of returns because people are naive and think these types of cameras are magic and defy physics, they may rebrand them to not be called full color type cameras and add IR capabilities.

I suspect though a problem they experienced and probably why they haven't yet is that anything close is probably washed out and not even smart IR has been able to account for it.

These things don't need much light, but do need light, and I suspect it is hard to dial these in for infrared or take a lot more tweaking.
