    Motion Pixelization (green blocks)

    Pepperfr, thank you too. I did not realize that the rectangles were more so for setup and troubleshooting motion detection, and not really meant to be kept on. Fenderman, my current "powerhog" server is actually combining what used to be running on 3 separate computers. It combined that tasks...

    Motion Pixelization (green blocks)

    Thank you Fenderman. I have highlight and rectangles turned on (I thought they were cool looking) and it turns out that seems to be the problem. I set a camera to "do not highlight motion" and the problem went away, now to change the settings for all the other cams.

    Motion Pixelization (green blocks)

    My mistake on saying green blocks, they are actually blue. In the attached video the top 1 inch is blocked from motion detection, notice the movement is clear and without blue blocks obscuring the action. All the area below the top 1 inch is subject to movement detection and is exhibiting the...

    Motion Pixelization (green blocks)

    Will a better graphics adapter help my dedicated BI machine?

    I think 3.63.06 and AOTE cameras. I am using the Aote Mpeg4 RTSP setting. Interestingly the cam with the most persistent issue is the only one I use a motion detection mask on. There is no pixelation of movement in the masked area, just the unmasked. Chuck

    Will a better graphics adapter help my dedicated BI machine?

    No problems really, just a little motion pixelation since I added the last 3 of a total of 15 cams.

    Will a better graphics adapter help my dedicated BI machine?

    I appreciate all your input fenderman, but I think my basic question is being missed. I am sometime horrible in phrasing a question. Is any of BI's performance derived from the graphics adapter in it's host machine or is it all based on the CPU? Suppose two equal machines with the only...

    Will a better graphics adapter help my dedicated BI machine?

    It has the Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset as a display adapter. That is the mobo integrated graphics. Chuck

    Will a better graphics adapter help my dedicated BI machine?

    It is in an HP DC7900 and using the integrated graphics. Lame by today's standards.

    Will a better graphics adapter help my dedicated BI machine?

    I use a dedicated pc to run BI - as a service. I do not use it to constantly monitor live action, more to record clips of detected motion. With an Intel Q9650 8 gigs ram, 7 Pro, ssd os and program drive, spinning drive for video storage, gigabit network - I am running 14 cameras, all 720 or...

    Setting up Zmodo ZP-IBH13-w

    My wireless access points are separate devices from my router, but if your router is also your WAP that would be the correct place to change antennas. You are fighting an up-hill battle with that brick wall. I installed a POE WAP in the attic dedicated to this camera so it would only have to...

    BI Status Button - Connections Tab - Clear Button Does Not Work

    My past connections from various machines on the lan, my connections from remote locations, and unknown attempted connections. On the messages tab, that Clear button works, the cameras tab, the Rest Button works.

    Setting up Zmodo ZP-IBH13-w

    FWIW regarding the WIFI on these cameras since someone mentioned it, it's pretty damn good! I replaced the antenna with a +9dbi 14-16 inch antenna, and replaced all 3 on my wireless access point with the same. I get 60-75% signal rating at about 500 feet, The camera is bolted to a tree along...

    BI Status Button - Connections Tab - Clear Button Does Not Work

    Am I missing something, or should I be able to clear the list of connections (minus any active connections) by hitting the Clear button at the bottom of the screen? Yes this is my only complaint running 13 cams for about 9 months on BI Software :)
