    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    Magic, I knew I’d seen something like this. Will give it ago later, thanks!

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    Seems to be fine. However, doing it this way, seems to ignore/nuke the BLC settings on the cameras. Any ideas how I might be able to retain BLC config from the camera, and/or pass those variables via Blue Iris? On a couple of my cameras I have the BLC offset to oneside to increase brightness in...

    exciting right? :D

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    All seem to have transitioned correctly to IR ON via Blue Iris (regardless of Camera config), so lets see what the morning brings.

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    Have changed one Cam to 'day' and the others to Auto. I'm wondering if the camera 'knows' its been triggered by an external source and just ignores its inbuilt config... we'll see I guess

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    If I set it to Day/Night, do I not run the risk, of the "Camera" thinking it is still Day, even after BI has turned LEDs off (and the camera then turns the LEDs on again?)

    IR Control via BI instead of Hikvision Camera

    I'm looking to switch to having BI control my IR cut over, as I can relate the switching ON/OFF of LEDs with Sunrise/Sunset. If/when I do this, how do I then prevent my Hikvision cameras from 'fighting' with BI and contradicting my settings? Blue Iris Config Hikvison Camera Config

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    I live in the UK............. where we use real money (Celcius). And have stupid ass weather -- welcome to our summer time! And correct. CPU temp, I'm not worried about at all. Though in our hottest days (30 degrees C outside) the room can reach 50, which means CPU gets to 60-70, which is not...

    What's your Blue Iris Setup like? (List Specifications)

    With the ability to use sub streams, I'm actually looking to massively downsize my system, if for nothing more than a kWh saving. Though there's that age old problem or spending to save. A new setup, would most likely never pay for itself with the savings -- but as a techie, new toys are nice :)...

    Has this had any impact on your CPU usage?

    5.2.7.0 - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    Just watch for changes in motion detection IF you use motion. The pixel mapping from main to sub stream changes, so in most cases you’ll need to reconfigure motion parameters. Zones, object size, object moves X pixels etc

    Unattended hidden BI server

    Similar setup, except I use RDP. Depending on how ‘hidden’ this room is... Having the computer set at BIOS level to ‘auto power on’ after power failure and having ILO/a smart plug, can save so much hassle. Along with Wake on LAN

    5.2.8 - May 20, 2020 - Direct-to-disc BVR recording will now include metadata for video overlays

    Did you have it working prior? I never had any luck, though it was probably back in v4 that I tried this!

    5.2.8 - May 20, 2020 - Direct-to-disc BVR recording will now include metadata for video overlays

    I tried that at first but my OCD went mental, having a vertical camera in amongst 7/8 horizontal ones

    Zone Crossing

    You'd probably get a better response with screenshots & sensitivity settings, I suspect the answer lies within.

    5.2.8 - May 20, 2020 - Direct-to-disc BVR recording will now include metadata for video overlays

    Since switching to Substreams my "motion" zone maps don't seem to align. Night Mode, Motion Zones A, B, C configured with G encompassing all those zones. Yet on playback. My "old" pre-substream Zone is displayed as the area of interest??! Obviously on Playback, its using the "main"...

    My Intel GFX and Chipset were also sizeably out. Updated them, but don't really expect that to be a fix. But you never know :)

    Just noticed VCRUNTIME140.dll is @ 14.21.27702.2, so quite out of date. Just installed latest 2019 VC++ and will see how it goes (14.26.xxxxx) https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/VC_redist.x64.exe

    Hello stability, where are you? See if you can notice when I switched to 5.2.8.x... Admittedly, along with 5.2.8.x I switched to H265 & sub streams, so could be one of a myriad of things. H265 Substream usage Intel+VPP encoding Seems to crash 'most' on playback in the console. Which...

    5.2.7.0 - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    Anyone else been ‘dropped’ back to Evaluation Version? I updated from .8 to .12 and now have this. Weirdly only during Live view... my recordings do not display the message. BI shows as not activated, I hit ‘register’ it goes to activated but then shortly drops back. my extended...

    5.2.7.0 - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    If you're hoping to copy existing zone maps from one resolution to another you’re going to struggle unfortunately. I’m sure I looked at similar when we upped from v4 to v5 and zones were lost and found that the zones were literally pixel grid references. A pixel grid of 1920x1080 will never...

    I had similar on 5.2.7.0, turned Encoding off & back on, and that seemed to help, probably more fluke than anything though! :smash:

    5.2.2.x Installer

    Anyone got an old 5.2.2.x installer laying around. I keep "updating" hoping my problem(s) are fixed, and instead keep finding more problems. Just want to go back to some stability.

    5.2.7.0 - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    I just grabbed the "update" from https://blueirissoftware.com/updates/, installed it, and then installed the update from inside BI itself.
