OK, my Dahua HDW210 cameras arrived today. One needed to be reset before it would respond to a ping of its default IP.
Both cameras now ping and I can log into them, but I still get the UI with the camera icon and no video. I followed the instructions in the manual to lower my security and Active X settings. Still no go.
A search of 'Active X' shows users still having problems. I am running Windows 7 64bit, IE V9 and FireFox 3.6.15. IE prompts me to download webrec.cab, I get the hour glass icon, then nothing.
I don't quite understand this Active X stuff. Do I need to download and install Active X from somewhere. What is the is webrec.cab stuff?
It appears webrec.cab is on the cameras since the system is looking at the cameras IP address for it.
Very frustrating evening to say the least.
Last weekwe received two of these cameras for a customer's project at work. We were able to get one desktop to work but another didn't.
Maybe that was a sign. As of right now, our customer can't get these two cameras to play, no video.
