Remove Dahua Time Stamp

Coolio

I have 4 Dahua 2mp Starlite cameras running on Blue Iris. When I view them, it has 2 separate time stamps. I assume the Dahua time stamp is the one in the upper right corner. Does anyone know how to remove it?

Thanks!

Turn off the overlay in Blue Iris, keep the time stamp from the camera. This can be moved in the Camera setup GUI.

Cool, thanks. Where do I find the overlay in Blue Iris? Also, where do I find the option to move the time stamp in the Camera setup?
BI - right click camera, properties, video tab, enables overlays checkbox

Camera - Setting, Video, Overlay, Time Title

Yeah I leave the time stamp on in-camera so it'll be in recordings to the SD card. Also, if I view it through another method (TinyCam, web) the incrementing time stamp confirms that I'm looking at live video.
