Re: Blank Live View

Hi BlueRIdge, Not enough info to assist you. If this is a new purchased upgrade, send a message to support, and let us know what they say. It is probably a camera setting if it worked in BI4, but we need to see your settings to even begin to understand what is happening. Did you copy the settings fo...

Re: Windows 10 slows down...

Hi BlueOldSurferDude, I only allow Win10 updates when I have the time to make sure it works. I then press "Pause updates for 7 days", followed by "Advanced Options" which allows me to extend it to 14 days. This works on my Win10 Home and Pro pc's, and prevents Windows from breaking my surveillance a...

Re: REO Link and Blue Iris 5

There are plenty of people here who use Reo link cams, so I hope somebody can help. I don't understand the "move to a paid solution" though. BI5 costs me ££'s every year :!:

It's a bit worrying that Onvif Manager can't find it either.

Now where are the Reo link users ?

Re: Blue Iris integration with Google TV?

I don't know this device, but suspect being Google that it runs some form of android. I have been trying to get enough people using android tv (leanback) to ask Ken to create a version for it for a long time. I have an Nvidia Shield and four 4K firesticks. I sideloaded normal android BI5 onto them a...

Re: 5.3.3.16 Update Failed

I've just tried it on my old Intel rig (Win10 Home x64, Winver 20H2) and it installed normally, and booted up OK. That was from 5.3.3.15 as well.

Re: Laptop

BI5 needs a fast drive for the "New" folder, but if you only have one drive there is no point in having a "Storage" folder as well so that would reduce cpu loading and drive wear. If you know the cpu can keep up, then I'm a big believer in trying things to see if they work, and then tweaking things ...

Re: live view lag, recording is fine

I got rid of lag by disabling the windows page file.
I guess that may work if you only have BI5 on the pc, but the last time I tried that, the pc kept crashing. YMMV !

Re: Web server with dual network cards

That is an odd one. My simpler system has the BI5 pc on my normal home LAN 192.168.2.x, and then I have a second NIC 10.0.0.1 on the same pc connected to a POE ethernet switch only for my cameras which all have static IP addresses. My mobile phone android BI5 app is set to the normal home LAN, and c...

Re: Laptop

Wow, is it Grinch season already :lol: I think a laptop could be a good idea for a small remote unattended system, as it has a battery built in like a mini UPS. My present BI5 (desktop) pc has an Intel i5-3330 CPU with 16GB of RAM, and it is coping well with four 1080 cameras and two old SD cameras....
