Re: Confusion about access to updates to V5

The $30 renewal has auto renewal enabled, the $35 option doesn’t.

You can cancel the auto renewal but I’ve heard/read that it’s not that easy a process to do so.

Re: Importing clips into BI

Bi uses a proprietary format for recordings as far as I know, you can export clips but don’t think there’s an option to import.

Just keep the clips separate, I normally export clips and then copy them over to my NAS for clips I want to keep.

Change the algorithm from Edge Vector to Simple.

I’ve personally not found Edge Vector to be that reliable.

Re: Help with expanding system

What version of BI are you running? Newer version s of BI can now determine the substream path when using the Find/Inspect button.

Re: Blue Iris causes odd network interference

If the switches are fully managed can’t you just create a VLAN for the CCTV which should help to keep the traffic separated?

Re: Adding camera thats thru network repeater

You need to starting trying to ping the cam from various points, start at the repeater and work back to the BI box to determine which devices can actually see the cam.

Also what is the network layout and how is the repeater configured, is running it in bridged mode possible?

Re: Version 5 on Windows 7 PC

I’d definitely upgrade to W10 first just to get that over with. After upgrading and assuming it activates with no issues I’d then download the current version of W10 using Microsoft’s Media Creation tool to get it into a USB stick and then trash the upgrade and do a clean install of W10. Some people...

Re: IP Cams gone from Blue Iris (and network)
