    Odd network traffic between BI and camera

    What would cause BI to continually try to hit http (port 80) on a cam? As shown in the capture below, at about 1 second intervals my BI server (dell5040) continually attempts connection to port 80 on (Annke cube cam) from sequential local ports, stepping up to the next higher port...

    Somehow created a cam I can't see or get rid of

    While messing around adding a new cam today I made a copy of another cam. Long story as far as that goes but my issue now is that I have a 'phantom' camera that I can't see or get to show up in the BI interface in order to delete it. It's not hidden or disabled. Those toggles are set to show...

    Lost ability to pan for oddball Anran camera

    Have an old Anran PTZ cam that I still run to scan the back yard sometimes (this one uses a Sony sensor so actually an OK cam but that's another story...). Noticed today that panning no longer works within BI. Panning does work from within the camera's own interface. Presets do work within...

    Which BI settings affect the magical time/space transportations?

    i.e., When a subject in a recording is in one place then there's a momentary gap and it appears that they've jumped to another location. I know that I've seen some threads here but can't figure out what the proper term is to search for.

    For some reason BI now is forcing all cams to an unused Profile 5 for Alerts, Triggers, and Record functions and won't let me change it to anything else. No changes were made to profiles. I did add a new cam and disabled a couple of others that no longer are being used. Tried restarting...
