Try a free app called Notepad ++ Its pretty good for things like that.

I have an I7-920 thats several years old. It runs Plex server along with BI and several other server apps on Win10. I never see an issue with plex having problems transcoding while BI is running. I would suggest messing around with kodis hardware settings as that sounds like a hardware conflict.

Networking / Re: Keeping the network working when my ISP goes down

This is why I say its a router issue. Just because your internet goes down, it should never take down your local network. Maybe you are dealing with a router/modem that is set a specific way by your isp or your router setup is really off. I have never found router/modem combos to be worth a crap. They almost always end up having some type of issues with port forwarding. I much prefer setting the modem/router to bridge mode and using my own router behind it. If you have just a regular router, then you need to do a google search on best way to set up that router.

Your main computer has nothing to do with it. its your router configuration. Instead of setting your devices with stattic ips that are outside the range set in your router, try setting your computers to dhcp but in the router, use mac addresses to reserve ips for each one. That way they always get the same ip. This is definitely a router config issue.

There are a few things to look at. make sure your frame rate is the same both in BI and in your camera. The big one if you have access to change it will be the iframe on the camera.  I dont have your camera but almost all ghosting is related to iframe and framerate. On my old esc cam, at 20fps I had a iframe of 5 and it worked well. play around with that number, if I remember correctly it should be at least half of what your setting your framerate to.

I really hate to see the forum go but I fully understand. Its a shame what internet bullies do behind a keyboard that they would never do in real life. I want you to know that my stay here has been nothing but enjoyable. I learned a lot and gained a couple internet friends a long the way. I always have considered this site as the only site to come to for BI support and just general camera knowledge. the vast knowledge of everyone here has made it so much easier to get information. Thank you for providing a home for us camera nuts. You will be missed.

I also want to thank stickman for his knowledge and help and constant BI updates. That has saved me more than once when a bad update came out.

Hikvision / Re: Hikvision Warning (USA)

Looks like you missed the point.  It was sold as a NIB USA model.  I have the invoice.  That IS an Amazon problem and subject to action.  It is called deceptive advertising and is colloquially known as "bait and switch".

Your point is only valid if one is LOOKING for a transshipped unit.    In this case, the buyer was looking for a USA region camera; and paid for one advertised as such.

The role of manufacturers in enabling and even encouraging transshipment to increase the number of units sold is much more complex and I suspect the complexity is why no actions for this behavior have been successfully brought forward.   A cynical business model is not illegal.

But, I really only discuss law with my attorney.  Never found such discussions on forums to be of much value.

This was posted to warn other members of a situation of which they may have been unaware.

Warning to others is fine but I didnt miss the point at all. First off, you bought a camera from a website that is on the no support list by hikvision. So that means A) you didnt do your proper research or b) did and decided to take your chances and lost. Either way, the first blame here is on yourself. Amazon is basically the middleman. Your beef is with the company that was offering it. Again, action will be against the company selling it. If there are enough reports of problems with a said product being sold by a company, amazon has been known to take down the product but again, they hold no liability other than getting the product to you or if a problem, give you another one or refund. they will then go back to the seller to get their money. Amazon does not control the advertising that said company is doing so again, it goes back to the seller, not the middle man.

Bait and switch while could be possibly used here, I think is the wrong term. You were sold a camera, the specific camera that was being listed? While it may have had a previous owner, it is still new in box if its never been opened. Damn those usa laws. Since you didnt provide a link to the actual listing its hard to say if you got what you paid for (did it state it was usa region?) or if you got scammed by the seller. Again while hikvision considers it used, the usa law may not. Good luck with your attorney though. I think your going to need it.

Fulfilled by only means the distributor has given stock to amazon in order to be shipped quicker. I seriously doubt that makes amazon responsible for anything other than making sure you get the product. If its bad they probably send it to the distributor and replace with another from stock.

Now lets take a moment here to think about this situation as a whole. In the past, you had to do your own research as to the device itself, where to get it, who supports it, etc. You think because amazon came about that none of that needs to be done anymore and its an undue burden? Cameras, being regular cameras or security cameras have been a specialized field. Especially security cameras. There are so many clones of clones of clones now that the field is saturated with cheap knock offs. You can buy these cheap knock offs everywhere. No matter what, you still need to do your research. If you know a company will only support their cameras from certain retail places, then why would you think buying it on amazon would somehow make them support it, especially when they list amazon as one of those sites not to buy from. That right there will kill any class action lawsuit your lawyer might want to get involved in, at least against amazon. Not to mention they listed the big ones right up front, ebay, amazon, newegg and so on. They are telling you right there that they only trust their small list of partners and not buy anything from big retail sites.

Now again, fulfilled by doesnt get you around bad sellers. It only guarantees that amazon has stock of said item and that they will replace it if there is a problem but again they are replacing it from said stock so if its a bad seller, you still get hit. especially in a situation like this.

Now with all that said. I do agree that in general regional selling is an issue of itself and that needs to be looked into. However, that would only stop items being sold as new. They would just turn around to sell them as used. This isnt an amazon problem, this is a world wide problem.

General Talk / Re: Ip camera remote log-in
« on: November 01, 2016, 04:50:54 am »
You could log into the router and make sure that the camera is getting an ip address, that could tell you if its online. Also, dyn-dns doesnt auto update if your ip address changes. Are you having your router update dyn-dns when it changes? I would make sure that is working properly as well.

Thats something you would have to ask Ken, the owner of blue iris. Shoot him an email. It can take him a day or so to respond.
