    BlackVue dash cam problems

    Here is a quick temp fix for BlackVue for iOS 13 and 13.1. go to iPhone BlackVue app click top left then sign out of your device. Then go to BlackVue cloud in the app Then click my location (which is to right on the map) The click use only while on app and this will allow you to use till new BlackVue update
  2. Since iOS 13 update BlackVue dash cam have become useless on the apple platform and with the new iOS 13.1 the problem still remains. any comments if your using BlackVue devices

    Accessing system away from home.

    HI with mentioning sky ... your in the uk yes there right as you get a static IP address with them. there are two types of IP address you need one is local which is something like 192.168.x.x. ..... which you have set up right and it’s your local ip which is allowing you to view while at home. to view while away from home you just need to add a external IP address which you will find by clicking on this link .... the number at the top is your external ip https://whatismyipaddress.com/ in your device list list go to edit and replace your local ip with the one from the link ... click save and your done.

    Protect hdd

    Hi there is nothing wrong with your hard drive. It sounds like you don’t have overwrite enabled so when your hard drive is full it will beep and no longer display ... this is to protect the data on drive. Enable overwrite and it will delete old for new data

    Hi. It sounds like your using the the cameras setup bnc to run on your dvr. The problem with that is your not getting full res from your ip camera .... it will only be 960h analog. Your going to turn your post long winded if you can’t list the cameras your using have you bought them new or from a site like eBay used.

    Why try and sell a crap battery camera .... nothing to do with 24/7 recording a standard ip camera will do the job much better than a crap smart camera
  14. How is it solving the problem spam spam spam. Just crap
  15. Hi. It’s down to the size of the cable (conductor) 23 is best. But this does not matter if your using analog with baluns why use cat6 when cat5 is more than enough
  16. Hi. All pss software sent to your pm.
  17. Hi. It’s available from a number of sites you are using dahua PSS (old version) which is still available you also have the option of using dahua smart pss. (New version)
  18. Hi. Yes .... your camera will only draw what it needs ..... under amp power units will run hot power boxes are usually 1.5 / 2amp per output to each cam which is more than enough for your cameras. Also what it does not allow for in camera specs are power surges...... this always happens for a few seconds when your camera goes from day mode to night mode .... moving filters and switching IR on it’s always best to have more power than what you need.
  19. Hi. Pigtails on 1 power supply always gives problems ..... you only need 1 camera to have a power fault and it’s takes the rest of your system down power supplies are not expensive also distribution box like a 4way would also be a cheaper option

  25. Hi. Unit rebooting everyday will have nothing to do with firmware. This is a sign of a hard drive failure or a faulty camera. Do you know what format cameras you are using as this unit can be analog only or HD cvi tvi ahd
