Re: Purchased Blue Iris but not sent product key? ***PLEASE HELP!***

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I must say that I'm dismayed to hear of your experience but just so you are aware, the only active contributors in the forum are customers like yourself and they won't be able to assist.

Re: cannot get FTP test working

Can you confirm whether the FTP server is on your LAN or is it on hosted web space perhaps? If it's the latter, I'll do some testing to see whether I can get one of my cameras saving to my web site.

Re: cannot get FTP test working

The "failed" message in response to clicking the test ftp connection button is a long time problem and the result can't be relied on. I only have experience of saving to the ftp server on my NAS but the test always shows as failed for me, my cameras are saving snapshots nonetheless. When I...

Re: web play back issue

In addition to the above, it's worth noting that the .dav video files that are saved contain additional information such as time and date encoded in the file itself to make them more suitable for security camera use. Smart Play handles these files and has an inbuilt facility to save the file out as ...

Re: Surveillance Pro Font sizes

I've been in exactly this position myself and found that if you wish to drive your monitor at 3840x2160 then unfortunately there's nothing you can do to make things easier to see. I know some people might suggest using Windows scaling settings but in the past I found that causes more problems than i...

Re: Remote Reboot

Glad to hear that you have got things working again. Just as a matter of interest, is the 7 minutes measured from when power is restored at your remote site? When my power drops, it takes longer than that for my router to re-establish a connection to the internet alone. I would guess that you are ac...

Re: Remote Reboot

harrypk Hello and welcome to the forum. I think you may have misunderstood what was being said about "manual reboot" as this is an option available in the WEB interface when you are logged into the camera. You can select it to perform an immediate reboot as opposed to a scheduled reboot. ...

Re: Can't connect camera to wifi

I just googled "SSID including spaces" and got some interesting results. Connecting to such SSID's is something which seems to have caused lots of people problems. It seems to be a particular problem with Android devices. Are you able to try connecting other than via an Android? It's defin...

Re: Buffalo NAS - AMCREST T1179EW

I have a WD NAS so this may be completely irrelevant to your Buffalo model but when I was experimenting with saving using the NAS option, I discovered that I had to include "/nfs" in front of the remote directory name. Almost as if the NAS firmware needed to be informed of the network prot...

Re: NVR NOT DISPLAYING CAMERAS ON DISK MANAGMENT

In PC-NVR Device Management, select the Home Group and then the cameras in the group should appear. Select them one at a time and then click on the double blue right arrow to transfer them into the selected channel display area. That should do the trick.
