    Best place to buy Cat 5 Cable online?

    Someone asked about Monoprice cable - I believe the monoprice cable I bought listed the manufacturer and also had the test report linked as well but I may be confusing it with another online supplier.

    New computer needed for Blue Iris

    I've got an old HP that I salvaged from a person who didn't want it - (using it for my kids). I launched the upgrade and it installed the standard Win 10 downloader...it's going to take awhile but I'm confident it will work.

    New computer needed for Blue Iris

    Looks legit based on the site itself and also based on google shopping reviews. I have bought from less reputable and still been ok....use credit card and pretty much nothing to worry about. Also, I have never had problems activating licenses - use the phone system to activate if that is still...

    New computer needed for Blue Iris

    When you say 'updated from fresh install' it sounds like you reloaded your box from scratch - so you might have removed or reconfigured some AV or other applications or drivers from your previous setup that were consuming cycles...?

    New computer needed for Blue Iris

    i7s and i5s are increasingly available at sub $500 and $400 levels, respectively, even in the non-eBay (i.e. retail) marketplace), if you look around for the deals. Good luck! True that I possibly overpaid compared to eBay. I'll let you guys know how my system holds up over time.

    Noob - Looking forward to my new setup...and a question

    Actually... there is text / an overlay with "IPC" in the pixelated region....but the pixilation is over the entire length of the 192 pixel strip - not just the text part...and it looks like the overlay text extends slightly beyond the 192 pixel mark.:(. Thanks for the response!

    Noob - Looking forward to my new setup...and a question

    Hello all! I just completed my first cam install. Got a single Amcrest outdoor POE 4MP running and recording direct to disk using BI. Found a great deal on an HP Core i7 from the local Staples a week ago (we'll see if it sucks or holds up....). I did notice that the main video stream has a...
