    100% HDD Usage

    If this changed on its own, meaning it was working for some period of time and then suddenly the problem started, check your cameras to ensure they are still set to Direct to disc. This happened to me; three of my 15 cams had that setting changed without any user intervention, and caused...

    BI stopped creating alerts

    Thanks for the info. I am using the $10 BI app. I’m not sure this is the same issue because basically the AI is failing as you can see in the log snip below. I only use the AI for alerts to minimize the notifications. I was actually thinking this could’ve been caused by the windows update...

    BI stopped creating alerts

    For me, the repair/regenerate doesn’t work to start the alerts again. In my system, this issue has resulted in the alerts being intermittent. So they just start working for a few minutes one day, then stop. Then a few days later start working intermittently again and stop again. I don’t know if...

    No clips since the 13th. Caused by update?

    Did that update affect alerts at all? I have clips since the 5.6 update, but my alerts stopped earlier this month. I am using AI, and it times out. Here is an example:

    Failed communication with all six my Empiretech cameras after power cycle

    Try the Dahua Config Tool. It should show the cameras, their configured IP Address, and let you to connect to them, even if they are on a different subnet, unless you have firewall rules preventing that. Mark Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam Setup Help

    I finally got this working by importing my old BI4 camera backup for this particular camera. It was my last resort, but it worked.

    Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam Setup Help

    I was just trying different cam # settings as a last resort. When I enter your stream profile, it has no signal, even with Cam# set to 2. What does yours show for "Main"; is it also (default)? Thanks. Mark

    Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam Setup Help

    I appreciate the assistance. Unfortunately, that did not work; no signal at all from the camera. I presume you have something other than (default) in the Main drop-down box. Mine has no other options than default.

    Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam Setup Help

    I tried selecting camera 2 in the pulldown, and that did not work. I know from back in the BI 4 days, the solution was to modify the stream string from channel 1 to channel 2, but the issue is that I don't have a stream string, I only have a forward slash "/" in there.

    Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M Dual Starlight Cam Setup Help

    Due to system issues, I decided to start out with a clean install and a fresh installation of BI5. I did not use a backup because I wanted to change some things anyway, since it had been years since the initial installation of BI4 and subsequent migration to BI5. The only issue I have so far...

    starting over what is the best route to go? new clean install of windows 10?

    I am in the same boat, but I am waiting for the (imminent) release of Win 10 21H2 before making the USB installer with the. Media Creation Tool, as 21H2 is the last “feature update” for Win 10. Those typically break things, so I figured I would just clean install that version; It will only be...

    BlueIris iPhone app not connecting via VPN

    I use Stunnel on the NVR PC, and that stoped working one day last year. Never did figure it out. I figured that Comcast changed my IP address but it hadn’t. We have been home a lot so it didn’t matter that much but I wish I could get it fixed. Mark Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Why does the Dahua firmware upgrade process suck?

    Agreed it is a challenge, but set up your network properly and resign yourself to the fact that you just don’t need to update. I know it is hard I always want to update things but for cameras I just don’t bother. If you have your network properly set up with your cams segregated and unable to...

    IPC-HDW5231R-ZE Rhea V2.800.0000016.0.R.200430 Latest new firmware

    I have not updated any of mine yet and I’m not sure that I’m going to because they cannot reach the Internet and the Internet cannot reach the cameras. I just don’t need the hassle if something goes sideways. Mark Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Is there a complete list of cameras that fit the PFA130-E junction box?

    We did, but Mike worked on putting it in the wiki (which he spent a lot of time doing) to make it easier for people to access. Mike did give me edit access when he did it but I’ve never really touched and I wouldn’t wanna screw it up. [emoji15] Mark Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Is there a complete list of cameras that fit the PFA130-E junction box?

    I am sure it is; since we have many newer camera models now. @Mike might be the best candidate to update this in the Wiki Cliff Notes. Mark Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    New Firmware for IPC-HX5X3X-Rhea_MultiLang_PN_Stream3_V2.800.0000013.0.R.191202.zip

    I noticed that the IPC-HDW5231R-Z/ZE is listed, but not the IPC-HDW5231RP-Z, so thought I would check to be sure it is safe to apply? Here are the part number details from my cameras: IPC-HDW5231RP-Z (P/N: 1.0.01.04.18696 S2) IPC-HDW5231R-Z/ZE (P/N: 1.0.01.04.18696 S3) Thank you. Mark

    stunnel

    Thanks for the reply. I did update stunnel last night, but the results are the same. I am also using it in simple fashion, and went through Dasstrum's video setup again, just to make sure I had everything set up correctly again.

    stunnel

    My remote access via the app (using Stunnel) stopped working several weeks ago. I was on BI4, and since push notifications had not been working in awhile, and since I have been working from home, it was not a priority to fix. Last night, I decided to perform the BI5 upgrade last night, which...
