    The BI answer all in one place, I was thinking about doing that but didn't want to usurp the knowledge masters.

    Look, I appreciate the reviews you right and in no way did I mean my post to be offensive... I am speaking of my own personal experience with this cam - I was also floundering around a bit to get both channels working in Blue Iris when I first got it and I finally stumbled upon the solution. I just thought I would pass it along to try to help out

    I'm new to the forum - and I see a lot of people recommend Andy for Dahua Cameras - I prefer to install dahua over hik for a couple reasons - but I'm noticing - none of Andy's camera reviews have logos on the camera bases like normal dahua cameras I buy - how do we confirm these are Dahua cameras?

    Study this> Cliff Notes.
    We know they are legit because the model numbers are on the Dahua International website.
    They are simply OEM models.

    Ok, another problem geeezz.

    I've got the dual headed HDBW4231FN-E2-M (3.6mm & PAL) set up and mostly working Except for:

    I've set up different intrusion zones to take snapshots for each camera using the IE interface of settings and IVS.
    Using SmartPSS (which is the same version I've been using for my SD49225's) My No. 1 camera shows the Intrusion zone and takes snapshots, the No. 2 camera does neither.
    I've also got both heads continuiosly recording to a Dahua NVR 4104-P-4KS2NVR.

    Does anyone else have this problem? - or a solution?

    Thanks

    ...and Yes IVS is checked in SmartPSS for both heads

    @EMPIRETECANDY can you ask Dahua about this? Mine does the same thing in testing.
