Re: Hardware for multiple on screen cameras

There are some very wide screen monitors out there that might be worth a look at. 34" wide, ~$290 https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Class-Ultrawide-Monitor-S34J552WQNXZA/dp/B08P9RJ1X7/ 35" curved, ~$375 https://www.amazon.com/Sceptre-C355W-3440UN-Super-Curved-Ultrawide/dp/B0812DKDD9/ 49"...

Re: Reolink Cameras Randomly resetting

If it's just those two cameras and they're doing it randomly, I'd say those two are bad.

A bad port on the switch shouldn't cause a reset to the factory settings so I'd bet that those two cameras are genuinely defective.

Re: trying to decide what PC to run BI on

My advice would be to try it and see what happens after you have done all of the cpu load reducing tweaks ! Agreed- nothing to lose by trying it, and it may be perfectly capable of handling multiple cameras (dependent on other factors, of course). The old PC (AMD FX-4130 3.9GHz, Geforce GT 710, 16G...

Re: Windows 11 requirements - Bit of a shock !

Microsoft will either provide a way around this or face massive backlash. If they don't provide a workaround then I imagine I'll be running Win 10 forever, and without any updates. Failing that, yeah, I'll put Linux on the box and run Win 10 in a VM. I'm buying a new PC when I'm ready, not when Micr...

Re: Wyze V3

Gotta be honest here- the Wyze cams cool little toys but should never be relied on for any real security. Eventually you'll get sick of their quirks and throw them in a box like I did. I have a home network with about 20 POE cameras, but I recently got a vacation rental, an hour from where I live no...

Re: Jog Shuttle Support for BlueIris?

I've noticed that the Shutle Pro just goes to sleep occasionally and then it's dead to the world. Nothing works to revive it, but messing around with it sometimes wakes it up.

Have any of you seen this issue?

Re: Looking for new system, 5-7 cams

With those specs it sounds like it should work just fine. If you can get a little snappier CPU for not too much extra $$ then I'd go for it, but what you specced below seems like should work for 5 ~ 7 cameras. HP EliteDesk 800 G1. Cost 250. 00 Prozessor: Intel Core i7 4785T 2..2 GHz Ram: 16 GB SSD 2...

Re: Log filename change not allowed

BI does generate a new log file every month, I assume it's reading the system date and time to know when to do so. The log files can get pretty big (well over 100 megs a month depending on how active your system is) and it stores them as well, so you can eat up a fair bit of space if you let it log ...

Re: is Blue Iris a background service demon?

You can follow these steps to stop Windows 10 updates: In the Run box ( Win + R ), type in “services. msc” and press Enter. Select the "Windows Update" service from the Services list. Click on the “General” tab and change the “Startup Type” to “Disabled”. Restart your machine. That'll pret...
