    Can NVR NVR4108-8P-4KS2 connect to a tablet or similar?

    No. USB. Behind the tablet is a 1-gang box and USB outlet: Leviton 4.2 Amp Decora 4-Port USB Charger Combo Outlet, White-R02-USB4P-0BW - The Home Depot The outlet can supply up to 4.2Amps. That's more than enough power for like 3 iPads.

    BV-Tech PoE switch OK?

Two 8 port switches live inside my media enclosure in house. They are sandwiched next to each other, they can get hot but I have...

    Hardware for live-view monitor of 16 cameras in matrix

    I doubt a chromebit stick has more horsepower than a raspberry pi 4, but I could be wrong. For the chromebit, you could run Tiny Cam Pro. That's a big plus.

    Hardware for live-view monitor of 16 cameras in matrix

    If that’s all you wanted to do then hands down Rasperry Pi + displaycameras app will do exactly that for you via rtsp. I have used displaycameras and it is perfect with x9 grid. It can handle it. displaycameras software is free and uses the raspberry pi onboard hardware x264 accelerator via...

    Strange problem with HDMI over ethernet

    You mean you can't use 0.5 ft? But you have to use longer? That defies all electrical engineering logic.

    Any dahua nvr http api available?

    I am looking for HTTP api for Dahua NVR. Specifically, I want to be able to change the number of channel displays in the channel-0 view window. For example, 4 windows, 9 windows, 16 windows, etc.

    Strange problem with HDMI over ethernet

    Dahua NVR5216-8p-4KS2 Keeps Rebooting

    The NVR will reboot when the firmware update completes. Sometimes, the progress bar indication isn't accurate because the browser is too slow to poll the actual live progress. Did you check the system area message for the NVR version to see if it updated?

    How do you get rid of the highlighted green box in Dahua NVR?

    When you live view the cameras in the Dahua NVR, the selected window is highlighted in green while the rest are all in white. How do you get rid of this highlighting because it just seems un-natural and annoying. I prefer them to all be neutral/white and nothing emphasized or selected.
