Re: Black Screen in RDP playback

Nope, I've heard the same thing. Apparently it varies from PC to PC and not all of them require the HDMI-faker dongle, but some do. The dongles are about $8 or so on Amazon so it would be a cheap test. I'm not sure, but I've read somewhere that unless you have a monitor connected, you may need a hdm...

Re: MicroSeven Wide-Angle cam

Here's one at 9:30PM, fully dark outside. Not bad for a cheap little camera like that. The image is clear enough that I can watch the rabbits, chipmunks, raccoons, and other critters running around at night.

I’m not even sure it’s related to port range, but I can connect to a camera with port of 5511 at the same remote location. Any ideas?
I'd suggest rolling back to an earlier version and seeing what happens. If it's a bug, send a report to the support address.

MicroSeven Wide-Angle cam

Here's a pic from a MicroSeven Wide-Angle cam with 150° field of view. I have one mounted and another will be installed this week- mounting them at 90-degree angles to each other will let me cover a huge area without installing loads of cameras. It's not a high-res camera (1080p @30fps) but the view...

Re: Nest Cams

You should NEVER consider Nest with BI a real solution and only a hack that may work until ... it doesn't. Bingo. Nest's service could disappear at any time for any reason; it's unwise to use them in a security system. The camera's reliance on an internet connection and a functioning service on the...

Re: Push Notifications quit on me

Just to be clear, it was working properly at one point, correct? Did you do any updates to either Windows or BI just before you stopped getting alerts? If you upgraded BI, have you tried rolling back to an earlier version? Finally, if you do a manual test the alert through the console or by physical...

Re: Quality Questions - Re-encoding

You can use ffmpeg to convert BVR files, and you can tune the compression, image size, etc.
