    PoE maximum length?

    You must be using 23ga pure copper. Copper clad aluminum won't get you half of that distance. I have two that are just over 500'.

    Help: Clip: Disk not ready errors (yes, me too)...

    No issues with chkdsk, and with constant read/write spinning down just doesn't happen. Though advanced power settings did have HDD turning off after 20 min. I've disabled that just now. Given that BI runs as a service, it is continuously writing to the drive, I would HOPE windows wouldn't...

    Help: Clip: Disk not ready errors (yes, me too)...

    Thanks for the pointers. I'm doubtful it's a drive issue since all of the drives (USB/NAS) I've used all exhibited this same issues - and in the same way... excessive warnings (usually after a reboot or restart) that last up to an hour, and then all works well. If it was a loose SATA cable...

    Help: Clip: Disk not ready errors (yes, me too)...

    Thanks @SouthernYankee - Not moving clips at all... Running 5.3.3.14, on Windows 10 Home. CPU is i7-4970, 16GB ram. CPU is typically between 60 and 80%, currently 75%. Ram is at 7.25GB. The problem resolved on it's own about an hour after I posted this - as it usually does. Comes and...

    Help: Clip: Disk not ready errors (yes, me too)...

    I have a single 5TB internal HDD for video clips (D:) that is used exclusively for all clip storage. DB and other OS files are on an SSD (C:). I'm getting the dreaded "Clip: disk not ready" error periodically. There are no clips that aren't readable from the console or UI3, so these seem to...

    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    Make sure you have a solid working connection between your weather station and pc/network. It used to simply use stale data when station disconnected ,(i.e. batteries died) but now if the RF signal disconnects , BIT errors out when trying to update WU. It makes it look like the problem is with...

    PTZ1A225U-IRA-N 2MP 25x Starlight

    What is your frame rate and exposure shutter rate? I have mine down to 1/3, and airplanes leave tails that look just like that. With a super slow shutter, the long exposure create motion blur in anything that isn't nearly motionless.

    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    I hate to sound ungrateful as I'm sure @Mike is feeling piled-on... But, has BIT been abandoned? It has been unusually quiet and I haven't seen a post here or in the beta section from him in quite a while...

    Bear visits and checks out my camera

    Very cool. They must be able to see the IR. I had one do something very similar to my camera:

    How many can you fit on an ATV?

    Ask for a directed patrol. It'll lock specific time to your intersection. They'll assign an officer to be there every day for x minutes at random times. At least that's how it used to work in Florida years ago. They'd have an officer spend his "between calls" time in a spot where he can snag...

    My best video yet... Finally got my timelapse moon and sunrise...

    It's been a bunch of trial and error, but I finally got my best video yet: This was snagged on the Amcrest (Dahua) IP5M-T1179EW-28MM (a mind-blowing $49 on Amazon when on sale). With the starlight sensor and shutter set to 1/3 second, it really snags great moonlit images. This was recorded...

    Who Likes A Quick Car Wash?

    Or a medical emergency? ETA: Description at YT video says it was a customer who confused the gas and brake pedals. $20 says it was in FL, and driver was elderly. These guys are so dangerous and there will never be a politician who would even whisper regulating their access to vehicles. They...

    THUGS in training

    Anytime I had a checker on my property, I'd call the local non-emergency number to find out if any vehicle burglaries were reported on my street. Never failed - if they were caught on my cameras, someone on my street got hit. It became such a joke among the neighbors, when it'd happen, the...

    Guy catch's kid always on his driveway.

    I was watching this thinking, "Oh no, someone is going to get pissed at kids and ruin their fun!" Goes to show how negative my view of the world is... So glad to be proven wrong. Maybe it's because my kiddos are 5 and 7yo, but that really struck a chord with me. Though, I have to say, if I...

    Timelapse problems/questions

    Just as an interim follow up, I think I have figured out what prevents the camera alternate frame rate from playing back at an accelerated rate (vs. real-time)... It's enabling the audio under the BI camera settings audio tab. With it enabled, the playback is real-time. With it disabled, it...

    Timelapse problems/questions

    Well, I gave up and simply cloned the older "working" camera, and reconfigured it to work with the Dahua. Works perfectly now. I'm leaving the email with Ken as I'd really like to know which parameter/setting I missed. Incidentally, in this video, there is NO external lighting (other than the...

    Timelapse problems/questions

    Thanks. I figured this question probably won't get much of a response given what a niche thing my application is. I just finished sending an email to Ken to see if he can explain the difference in how the recordings are played back. I suppose I could simply clone the original camera profile...

    Timelapse problems/questions

    For several years I've been using a PTZ camera (SUNBA) mounted on my chimney to capture a frame every 10 seconds during daytime hours from sunrise to sunset. It has resulted in some pretty spectacular timelapsed clips of morning clouds/fog: Over the last few days, I tried to...

    Neighbor's Pickup Truck Stolen Early This Morning.

    Like Tucker always says with the slightest hint of sarcasm, "Diversity is our strength". Though, arguably, if they're 99% of any race, I suppose that should be seen as "lack of diversity". Oh, all the rules. BTW, regarding the medium used to get video to the po-po.... What about the...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Precisely. It is that politicization and polarization that has blasted its way through EVERYTHING, that makes it impossible to know what to believe. Everyone appears to have motives that have nothing to do with patient well-being. Sure, they claim it to be, but at the end of the day, can we...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    And if I had voted for Trump to be my Christian leader, pastor, or other moral pillar, I think I would have been a fool. It'd be nice if the CEO of our country did reflect those principles, but I'm too pragmatic to expect perfection. Give me a business man who knows how to shake things up...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Differing viewpoints are fine. But when someone's viewpoint is exercised, and it directly increases my family's risk, it is no longer a viewpoint. It is a tangible threat and should be addressed accordingly.

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    I agree wholeheartedly. I just think most people lack common sense, and all sense of responsibility.

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Big fan of Lew Rockwell and libertarian principles / Austrian economics.... Forgive the late reply. I just stumbled upon your post. In a perfect world, I think we'd have an educated (or educatable?) constituency that is open-minded enough to understand the science. We'd also have science...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    I do not disagree with your logic. But I think we're talking about something that has an immediate effect on the spread of the virus, and therefore volume of patients entering the ER. No doubt that obesity is a huge factor in the severity of the illness, but likely does not have much to do with...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    As a conservative libertarian at heart I struggle with government mandating anything. Especially clothing or things that I do with my body. But this presents a real dilemma. Mandating seatbelts (which I despise), or helmets to protect from falling objects or motorcycle accidents, arguably are...

    Date/Time overlay - Camera, or Blue Iris, or both?

    Hmmm... That's an interesting solution to the time synchronization problem after neutering the cameras' ability to reach the web.

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    It has been a long time since I've come back to this thread. And up until about three weeks ago, I was firmly in the camp that the virus, while real, was being grossly exaggerated by the media to create political harm to the current Administration. In fact, doctors and nurses were being...

    Ever experienced Sibling Rivalry at this level?

    I'd say this was the flick where Ferrell jumped the shark, but if I'm honest, all his movies are like that. Too much for me.
