Re: Getting Cameras to Full Screen on WebUI

Now I am wondering what I am using. IE is practically useless these days. Google, & Edge are too intrusive. Heck IE won't even allow me to go to the ipaddress of my BI server, Bing keeps interfering. So I use firefox. What is the new interface called on v5? I've always used UI3 on v4. This sorta...

Layout Question

Layouts have 1-up, 2-up and 4-up. I am trying to figure out if there is a simple way for a 3-up layout? -Bill

Re: View cameras on a TV

Yeah, the Easy button.. ha! I only would use it if someone rings the doorbell and I am not expecting anyone. Can easily bring up U3 on my ipad or phone if I need to look at clips. But I would normally just go back to my PC for that. (door to door sales usually) The guys NOT selling Solar... ROFL.

Re: Getting Cameras to Full Screen on WebUI

Getting Cameras to Full Screen on WebUI

We v4 Web UI I had been able to remove that panel with server status, PTZ and other information so I could view the cameras almost full screen. I seem to be able to move that panel from the left to the right, but I cannot see a way to hide it in the webs settings. Am I being blind? Since I don't hav...

Re: Is there an upgrade available to BI5 from BI4 ?

I pulled the trigger on the $29 Maintenance and performed the upgrade. Follow the directions carefully. Even after following them I had to put in my v4 key again. (was expecting to use the maint key) Its all working fine today. -Bill

Re: Record Dual Streams if Available setting

Unfortunately all my cameras are h264 based. Support is extremely slow, usually a week to get back to me. Started coming here, but maybe this isn't frequented by folks in the know either. -Bill

Re: 10TB online for $5

Nice, I use iDrive for versioned offsite backup but I only get 5 TB to use for around $99 (not sure exactly how much and too lazy to look up) Plus with that I get another 5TB of Sync data. Works like dropbox. Not quite as good but I got pissed at DB when they upgraded me and raised the price while t...

Record Dual Streams if Available setting

I use the continuous recording for all my cameras which makes fairly large files so I am thinking of unchecking this new setting to save disk space so I can keep files longer. I want to make sure I am not shooting myself in the foot doing that. Any ideas? I was using v4 for a pretty long time and I ...

Re: Is there an upgrade available to BI5 from BI4 ?

I am not quite sure what the difference is between the $29.95 extension versus the $35.95 one: If you have a clue could you please let me know? Thanks, Joe M. That's an interesting question. Maybe the $29 one auto renews? I purchased a brand new copy of v5 via Armcrest a few weeks back so I could m...
