    The red outline will be around the full camera frame on the main screen when viewing multiple cameras.

    The red outline appears when motion is detected not during continuous recording. The little red icon at the top left of each camera window indicates recording when in continuous recording mode or when triggered.

    Have a look at the Cliff Notes in the Wiki at the top of the page, in the blue title bar. Use a real computer and not a smart(?) phone.

    You have the indication circled in your picture that it IS recording. The red dot.
    Stop changing settings until you understand their affects.

    I really haven't changed much. And if I do it's only after I checked if it has worked.

    as Looney2ns has said leave it alone.

    wait two day do nothing.

    If it is still broke after 2 days start over in very small steps.

    1) delete all cameras.
    2) add all cameras back in with continuous recording. Only one profile, no motion detection.
    3) let it run for 2 days, is it continuously recording, if not stop and report back
    4) verify that it is recording properly by playing back multiple different time and cameras.
    4) add motion detection on the cameras.
    5) let it run for 2 days, see it it is generation motion detection alerts
    6) add your profiles test it...

    Why does it say 2 clips but shows one? Plus there is a gap.[​IMG]

    Thank you for helping me out with my BI issue. Removing and adding cameras back fixed it as of yet. I do have a couple more questions.....

    I show duplicate clips in my clips area. When I look in the recording folder I show only 1 clip.
