You are correct, it appears with the latest firmware that any back light settings, must be done for ch1, and that setting gets set for ch2. You can't adjust ch2 separately.
Ok, thanks for the honest feedback. We are going to use it more or less as an additional camera that we were originally not going to purchase so even with those issues it sounds like it will work fine for our needs.You are correct, it appears with the latest firmware that any back light settings, must be done for ch1, and that setting gets set for ch2.

IVS will only work on one channel at a time.
The IR is weaker than a turret would be as well.
I've had it up in use for several months with BI, and other than that, it's a fine camera.
One of the many pitfalls with domes.This thing is ridiculously bad when it comes to IR reflections. Unless the heads are adjusted pretty much at 90 deg, the "boobs" reflect the IR leds in a way that make the whole thing close to useless at night. And I am not even talking about extreme angles, it's 60-ish deg in my case.
I have the same problem. I think it's worse if you angle the cams too high. I will post some pics when I get the chance.The bottom half of the image is practically white, with some foggy dots which are the LEDs.
Boot that thing my way and I'll give it a go lol.Also, as if those issues weren't enough, if "Scene change" alarms are enabled, IVS is completely dead. No detections, no e-mails.
This is by far the crappiest Dahua product I ever had in my hands. Pardon my French.
