    ONVIF Device Manager doesn't show a live view

    No, it's not behaving as expected.

    ONVIF Device Manager doesn't show a live view

    OK, so the camera does do ONVIF motion events. Provided it's enabled and configured in the camera, I'd expect to see events appearing in the Events page when there is motion detected. Well that's not ideal. Off-the-wall thing to try (unlikely to do anything though) - do you get any Live Video...

    ONVIF Device Manager doesn't show a live view

    Does Windows prompt you for an access control agreement on ODM startup? Maybe try running ODM 'as administrator'. Presumably 'No Signal' either on the Video Streaming page? Does the camera have any authentication settings choices for RTSP in its web GUI? There are a couple of other ways to...

    Hikvision OEM NVR setup for ONVIF motion events?

    All ODM needs is to be on the same LAN IP address range as the camera, and to be given the needed logon credentials in the top left of its window.

    Hikvision OEM NVR setup for ONVIF motion events?

    Isn't this just telling the NVR what action to take (usually recording) when it receives a motion event? One way to determine if the NVR is simply responding to event notifications from the camera is to correlate / cross-check with the camera events as seen by the Events page in ONVIF Device...

    Search function on Dahua NVR shows solid alarm trigger

    Does that Dahua NVR have the equivalent of the Hikvision 'Show rules' setting where on playback it shows the trigger source as an overlay on the video?

    Why are my cameras in sud stream?

    That's the default in multi-view. Just as main stream is the default in single view. Likely the NVR isn't able to decode all main streams in multi-view. What do the specs say?

    Batch upgrade bunch of 2xx2 with CH firmware

    Hey, well done! I didn't download and check the contents, I just went on the top-level description. It's good that it worked out OK.

    Batch upgrade bunch of 2xx2 with CH firmware

    It seems that Hikvision CN is no longer publishing R0 series firmware : https://www.hikvision.com/cn/download_606.html

    Adding a NetHDD for Hikvision Cameras

    The way I explored this a while back was by changing the volume size and seeing what happened, both for NFS and SMB/CIFS. Where the server could apply a user quota on an SMB/CIFS share that worked OK. But it's a bit of a grey area, the results for which vary with the camera firmware version.

    Dahua Firmware Mod Kit + Modded Dahua Firmware

    There are multiple tweaked variants of that firmware version. The one attached is probably as useful as any. There is some risk - that's a Chinese camera. What problem are you trying to solve?

    Simple Dahua bullet cam 50mm vari-focal mod

    I'm curious why you used nylon standoffs as opposed to brass standoffs. Do the nylon ones flex much? Is that the reason for the foam pad?

    Camera Faceoff: Dahua Starlight IPC-T5442TM-AS vs Hikvision ColorVu DS-2CD2347G1-LU

    Debatable when most have in-built IR and visible LEDs for illumination.

    Batch upgrade bunch of 2xx2 with CH firmware

    Presumably if you update with CN firmware (which will likely not be possible via web GUI or the Batch Updater of they are running hacked to EN firmware) the NVR is then going to reject them with a 'Language Mismatch' error.
