    ONVIF camera names revert to IPC after restarts or changes

    Dahua/Amcrest NV4116-HS issue... With the 2020 NVR firmwares, I find that the names given to my ONVIF cameras all revert back to the value of "IPC" after any single camera has been momentarily offline due to rebooting, or any time a camera is added or subtracted. The channel names within the...
