    Little help with exposure

    I have a Dahua PTZ SD59225U-HNI . It's picture has been seemingly dark. Something I think I've noticed but not really paid much attention to until today. Even though most of the scene is snow. The image is very dark compared to my other cams (5231s).

    After rebooting I have a single CAM Dahua 5231R that has the yellow circle with a ! in at at the top of that camera. Also it doesn't report a bitrate in BI. Looking up in the manual says usually the frame rate is mismatched. Checked, double checked, changed the frame rate, changed the...

    Camera called "Motion" keeps being added back.

    When I restart BI a camera called "Motion" with shortname of "Camera" keeps being added in as a camera. It has no signal because it has no setup. Has anyone else ever had this happen? This is twice on two systems now. On the last system I just hid it because I could never get rid of it.
