Re: "convert/export" option grayed out

Different ways to do this (of course). Simplest, is to double-click on a 'clip' in the clip list. It should start playing the clip in 'edit' mode. You know your in edit mode if there's no boarder AND you see the start/end frame marks. Set your start/end points, then export. If there's no clip... - C...

Re: How to upgrade and move to another computer

Also, see the 'Blue Iris Updates' web page. It mentions how to upgrade from V4 to V5. It's not complete. It does not mention how to get the V4 backup into V5. I wouldn't think they are compatible. V4 and V5 can both be installed. When I upgraded to V5, I think I setup V5 from scratch, using V4 as re...

Re: How to upgrade and move to another computer

I thought that if your support expired then you can only install the last update that came out before that expiry date regardless if you auto download it or somehow get the GUI to do it as you’ll end up going into evaluation mode? It was my understanding that even without a support plan, one could ...

Re: How to upgrade and move to another computer

Yes. But... V4 to V5 is a major upgrade, and there is a fee for major version upgrades - Unless you have the yearly extended support plan, which includes major upgrades. Minor upgrades are free. However, there was a change in V5 some time back that BI will check for minor upgrades and install them O...

Re: How to upgrade and move to another computer

There should be a section in the BI manual on how to move an install from one machine to another. I do not believe uninstalling deactivates. You can leave BI v4 or V5 on your old computer, just deactivate it, then back it up. Install the same version on the new machine, then copy the backup to the n...

Re: Blue Iris skips events

Please post the BI version # your running (not V4 or V5 - like... 5.3.3.6). Also, if you have updated recently, and the version # you updated from.

Unfortunately no, three led characters that just change with time countdown, End, and Dor (for door open).
I think the only hope for this to work is cosmo's suggestion.

Re: how to COMPLETELY remove BI5 before reinstall

Before deleting these two reg entries, please back them up - just in case everything goes south, you can get them back. Run this bat file to backup the 2 registry branches. In addition, it also backs up the BI registration branch (which is also backup up in the LM .reg file). It will create the foll...

Re: Laundry detection (no really)

If there is noise around the laundry room, audio detection probably would not work.

Does the display change position - like from one side to another?
