Its not thru Blueiris itself, and am waiting for their Android app to allow install easily on Android TV. Anyway, I have a 2017 Shield device. I use that to wa...

Re: Testing Clip moves from New to Stored to AUX1

Yes, its all setup as specified in the subject line, but I was thinking there would be a way to test the setup by moving test files thru it to make sure everything is setup correctly with permissions and network connections. I moved the timings down two one day each as I couldn't see a test method. ...

Re: anyone ever see a strange login in your log file?

This can't be true or the entire internet would be hacked all of the time. We wish, for the last 10 years of my IT career I managed/supported eCommerce systems for a large multinational with all their north and south American businesses. We got hacked almost daily. It was so bad we had to implement...

Re: anyone ever see a strange login in your log file?

I guess the real question is why would you put the BI server on the internet? Many years ago I put a very secure Linux box on my DMZ and within a few days someone broke into it and changed the root password. After that I realized its practically impossible to lock anything down that is internet faci...

Testing Clip moves from New to Stored to AUX1

I am trying to determine if I have my clip movement setup correctly so I can happen when it needs to. Is there any way to force a file move from new to stored and then to my Aux 1 system? -Bill

Re: Android TV client (Leanback)

I would buy one too! Or even a device to do it. It would be even cooler if it could pop up a PIP with a camera sensing motion, like someone walking up the front walkway or pulling into the driveway. That sounds like a money printing opportunity. Wow.

Lost a camera after dragging it

Well, this is a first for me. Been using BI 4 for a few years. Yesterday I was on the BI PC console and decided to drag a camera to a different position. When I did it disappeared. Gone. And now I cannot find it to get it back. I can see its still recording by going into the stored clips but I would...
