    I have two 2831's running the exact same firmware (2.800)
    One of them has the WDR option available (which is needed) while the other 2831 does not (also needed for the other cam).
    Is there some other setting that I might have selected that then negates the WDR option from being made available?

    UPDATE:
    Okay, something weird discovered here.

    On one 2831, if I select the Profile Day under the Backlight settings, I have the WDR option - But NOT with the Night Profile.
    On the other 2831, it's exactly the opposite.

    On both, If I select the Normal Profile, I have the WDR option.

    What's going on here?

    Not sure, but fyi -WDR at night just creates motion blur. Even if you're running color at night, I'd recommend not using WDR.

    Okay...well, on one camera, if I select the Day profile, there's no option for WDR (which it needs for daytime hrs). On the Night Profile, I moved it back to BLC.
    On the other, if I select the Night Profile, there's no option for WDR...so that takes care of that issue.

    so then the question now becomes, why do I not have the WDR option on the first camera when selecting the Day Profile?

    Hmm, I wonder if a certain exposure setting negates the use of WDR?
