    Mini outdoor PTZ : DS-2DE4A220IW-DE

    Their not 'indoor domes' they are a 5mp model which is not good for dark/low light environments - I have the 3MP version in the same format and its excellent at night (I don't even use the IR).

    Recording totally pixelated after a few seconds

    Also drop your substream fps, I only run mine at 12fps and run the iframe @ 4X the fps (so 48 in your case).

    Recording totally pixelated after a few seconds

    You should have 40meg of incomming bandwidth to play with between your 4 cameras, but keep in mind that this also include the substream (Mainstream + Substream x4 cameras). I would look at dropping the frame rate to 15fps for any camera that is just for pedestrian traffic - I only use higher...

    Recording totally pixelated after a few seconds

    Check the record settings for event. Also bump up your bit rates, 6144 is a bit on the low side for 5MP @ 20fps with matching iframes. Change the settings from the NVR it will give you recommended bit rate ranges for your settings. Consider switching to H265.

    Frustrated with Email Alerts

    Take it the recorder itself has no alarm inputs either?

    Frustrated with Email Alerts

    Get a proper outdoor PIR or microwave/dual tech motion detector - anything using the cameras own optics as the alarm/event activation will be flawed and cause too many false positives.

    Whick Hikvision Turret to get?

    Depends where you put it and how observant they are... The red glow is a dead give-away and can be useful to draw attention but not to capture evidence or at least recognition, the camera more discreetly placed at low level with its IR off will often get the money shot - seen it play out many...

    Whick Hikvision Turret to get?

    IR is easy to defeat, black & white footage offeres less evidence vs colour. If your intruder knows the position of all your cameras there's little chance you'll get the evidence you'll need, its the one they don't see that will get the money shot. Low light camera, IR turned off - augment with...

    New firmwares 5.5.4 (G1) & 5.5.5 (R6)

    Chaps, some new firmware available on Hik UK/IRE website Hikvision UK & Ireland just updated 2 of my cameras, nothing bricked - will have to see what these really fix since the readme says little other then compatability updates.

    Stepping from analog into IP cam world

    I normally fit the recorder in the loft, maybe connect a 1st floor TV or monitor and either run a data link cable to the router or use a pair of power line adaptors for the internet side of things.

    Park Action not working except after Smart Track event....

    I vaguely remember some inconsistancies using the park action via its own PTZ section, in the end I set a 'park action' via the 'Schedule' section as a preset - 00:00-24:00 Mon-Sun, etc.

    Troubleshooting POE Powerline

    And the solution was? (its good to report back as its useful information for the next guy that has a similar issue).

    Troubleshooting POE Powerline

    OP, from what I've seen Ubiquiti PoE adapters are proprietary made for their own kit, most run on 24v so that’s likely your issue.

    We all have to ask "stupid" questions in order to become "experts" in any field!

    I have found that some Hik firmwares don't like you changing their ports, had some problems with a grey import 2032 a while back. Post some screenshots of your network settings page and also your router port forwarding - probably be too much to hope that the the TalkTalk "super router" does...

    Hik's new mini-dome, first look.

    You didn't get the below lens adjustment tool? (picure by the late Network Camera Critic. RIP.)

    Hik's new mini-dome, first look.

    Just got a pair of DS-2CD2525FWD (IWS version). Interesting setup - mic appears to be the small hole at the base of the left hand side of the camera base piece. IR has been moved to 2 seperate frosted lens modules either side of the camera body away from the main CMOS ball, this should help...

    Stepping from analog into IP cam world

    As actran says 8MP will be worse then the Easy IP3.0 2&3MP cameras, however I have an new 8MP turret next to an older 2-Line/Easy IP2.0 4MP turret - the 8MP actually performs better at night - less picture noise, cleaner overall and a touch less motion blur. Overall you really need to consider...

    Anyone using Hi-PoE with their DS-2DF8236I-AEL?

    PTZ often includes the power adaptor in the case PoE injector - a lot depends on your supplier, some buy them without - worth checking.

    Stepping from analog into IP cam world

    My recommendation: Front door - 16x9 aspect (either 2, 4 or 8MP) - 2.8mm lens - some aluminium sticky back foil on the inside of the lantern glass pane nearest the camera to reduce glare. Mini-dome or anti-vandal dome camera. Back Yard, consider a 4x3 aspect (3 or 5MP) - 4mm lens. Turret...

    Anyone using Hi-PoE with their DS-2DF8236I-AEL?

    I can't buy one from any of my suppliers for the ebay price - its probably a knock-off. To be fair, there's nothing much to most PoE injectors so their not a difficult item to copy.

    Recommended power supply for setup purposes?

    12v DC supplies are pretty much the most common type, just check the output on any spares you have floating around.

    CCTV or the TV at fault?

    1920x1080 on this recorder will be the same as 1080p so that should be fine. Do HDMI converters work with a standard patch cable? - you really need to check the converters are okay, if they are that leaves the ethernet cable itself, depending who put it in there could be a fault with it -...
